Year of the Gator Indeed

HoopsThe party is over. Hoops season is complete. Spring Break in Bracketville has given way to finals prep and summer job searches.

After a bracket-gone-wild pre-party, little George Mason showed up at the kegger with some bruises and shoulder chips. LSU, despite post-Katrina chaos raging on, managed to down twelve beers at the wet t-shirt contest before passing out in UCLA‘s hotel room.

I just want to know one thing…who invited the Florida Gators to the Final Four?

Who voted them Prom King way back during fall semester?

Oh, wait, it was me!

While my official bracket was a colossal mess, much like the rest of the nation’s, I managed to tag the Gators as potential champions way back on December 12th. Now, I’m no hoops expert, but maybe Andy Katz and Jay Bilas should start answering my emails. That goes for you too Simmons.

Until November, enjoy your summer MLBcation. (zzzzzzzzzzzzzz…)
