I’m a Michigan fan to my core, but hard as I tried to root for anyone but Michigan State in Final Four, I couldn’t control my yelps/fist pumps as those Spartans sunk basket after basket. And I couldn’t fight the desire to head downtown to Detroit to celebrate after the fact. I felt like I was in the twilight zone – rooting for State AND hanging out in Detroit?
What a strange, strange day.
And it was awesome. There were hot basketball fans all over the city and despite the $200 I lost playing blackjack at the Detroit casino (I was sitting next to a really cute UNC fan and didn’t want to get up….) the entire evening was really quite fun.
And now it is the moment of reckoning (for college basketball…not T.I.): the NCAA basketball final is here. Tonight the top two basketball teams in the country will face off for the ultimate title. Which team will come out on top: Barack Obama’s pick, UNC, or the Michigan State Spartans? And, the bigger question, will this game be over in time for the season premiere of The Hills?
We can only hope.
Who are you rooting for tonight?
