Chevron Gray & Yellow

Tuesday, March 29, 2011


Who says 33 is young and inexperienced? Well, I think Coach Shaka Smart has proven the naysayers wrong. He and the players have proven that skills, determination and heart can carry you a long way. That's right, Kansas! I'm talking to you, Duke! The Rams' success to the Final 4 this year may be a Cinderella Story, but I choose to believe otherwise. Sure, my bracket is demolished, but I don't really care. Everyone else's is too. Both of my Carolina teams are out of the playoffs, but I can still hang onto some Southern pride in this Yankee town by routing for VCU. I have pride. I went there. It may not have been for a degree, but instead to get my teeth beautifully straightened (Thanks, Dr. I), but that's not what I tell most people. My brother obtained his masters through this university and I cheered him on as he crossed that stage. See, I am connected. We all know my blood definitely runs GOLD...ummm...hello, Tiffany. I am connected.

Thankfully, My Hero and I won't have to watch the Final Four as a house divided. He has already asked me who I would cheer for if VCU and Carolina played one another. My heart is with VCU, but my soul is with Carolina. Tough question. Would I rather be disowned by my side of the family or by my own husband? Either way, I would lose. I skillfully changed the subject and averted his attention otherwise...I might have actually started cooking something which made him blackout for a few seconds. HA!

You're Invited!
WHAT: Grab your gear and cheer for the RAMS!
WHEN: Saturday, April 2nd
TIME: 6:00PM

If you want to look like you know what you are talking about, don't say "Virginia Commonwealth." Simply say "VCU." Got it?

  1. Let me tell you, Richmond has been ROCKING since last weekend's big win...we were sad to see the Spiders lose, but are so proud VCU is still in there. The Monument Avenue 10K is this Saturday morning and Sportsbackers is urging everyone to wear black and gold and make it a "RAMPEDE!"
