Madness

Well, the Tigers have done it. They move on to the Elite Eight.

Tonight they butted heads with the Texas A&M Aggies and came away victorious. It made for an interesting night at work; two of my friends/co-workers are spirited A&M alumnae, so they spent a good portion of the night getting razzed by the Tiger fans (read: everyone else).

I've gained quite a reputation in the office for being completely apathetic about sports. But tonight, I have to say, I felt more than a little excitement when that kid from Memphis shot those beautiful free-throws to put the Tigers ahead and, eventually, send the Aggies home.

And, while it would have been cool to see the Vols win too, it was awesome see Memphis rise to the top of something other than a list of the most corrupt and crime-ridden cities in the country.

Enjoy this sneak peak at your Commercial Appeal A1 for Friday. I put lots of blood, sweat, and tears into that thing. Also, lots of curse words.

They totally blew it today. The office was considerably quieter.
