    Time to Party Like It's 1988!

    Rock Chalk, Jayhawk! This goes out to all those Kansas growers and other Jayhawk fans. It's been a long time coming. I grew up in Lawrence and remember in 1988 being on Jayhawk Boulevard (I was seven) when they won the NCAA championship. I live about 45 minutes from Lawrence now, but the footage on the news looks insane! Massachusetts street packed with people for blocks. What a trip.

    I cant say im a Kansas fan, but it was a great game! They were down what, like 9 points with 1:45 left? Amazing. Great game, great last second heroics, thew whole 9 yards. It was great! I'll bet you wont see Memphis doing anything for a while too!

    Btw likeAstone, your sig., do like Chicago? I love that song!

    Yes, it was probably one of the best NCAA championship games I've seen in a while. I didn't get a chance to watch many of the tournament games this year, but from reading the box scores, it seemed like most of the games were blowouts with double digit leads. More than I love my teams winning is just watching a good, intense, back and forth game.

    I would have preferred to see any of the other three final four teams beat Kansas, but I don't mind them winning. I was just happy to see my adopted home state team UConn go down in flames at the beginning of the tournament and for Duke to follow them in the next round. Those games made the season for me.

    Was Terry Kath the one who shot himself playing around with a .22? Is that better or worse than a tragic gardening accident which authorities said is better to leave unsolved?
