KU!!! - 2008 National Champs!
And I have to admit it was pretty cool of Roy Williams to be in the crowd, wearing a Jayhawk button and cheering for KU.
Then we fell behind - it was deathly quiet in that apartment when we were down by 9 with little more than 2 minutes left in the game. Bova was on the deck because she couldn't bear to watch it. Next thing you know, they're missing their free throws and then Chalmers - SUPER MARIO - hits the game tying 3-pointer. And we dominated the overtime. We finally got to rush Mass Street and party like it was 1988 (as one paper put it).
No words I can write can possibly do any of this justice. So here are the photos:I thought Brett looked adorable but he didn't think it was manly. The tattoo was removed shortly after.
We are about to begin our trek to KU Country - Lawrence, Kansas. That's my tattoo from the NC game.
Our lovely and gracious hostess, Jill
The younger sister, Jaime (a.k.a. Jamamie)
Some of our watch party - from left, Bova, Jeff, Jaime and Annie (as you can see, she tried to jinx the whole game via failure to wear a KU shirt) :)
The rest of the watch party - from left, Mark, Jill and my dorky self (those are the unlucky beads)
Jaime yelling at someone to close the door!! We had opened them because one of the Memphis players was supposedly freaked out by open doors...??? Something like that. So we tried opening them to jinx him.
Brett cheered a little too rough
It turned out to be lucky. Brett bleeds KU. :)
KU just won it all in overtime. I like how all you can see of Bova is her hand holding the champagne bottle.
On our way to Mass St to celebrate
