With the Final Four tipping off a mere three hours from my igloo in the Great White North, I graciously volunteered to cover it for SLAM (I know, my generosity is astounding). So I made sure our pet polar bear had enough food, loaded up the sled dogs and mushed off to the land of opportunity - the U.S. of A. For good measure I brought along my wife and son to drop some greenbacks and ensure the success of Obama’s economic stimulus plan.
Not surprisingly the city is a sea of green. A swarm of Michigan State jerseys, t-shirts, license plates and hats have swarmed the city. The only place they haven’t invaded seems to be my hotel out in the ‘burbs, which seems to be exclusive Villanova territory. Unfortunately I expect the green-clad fans to go home dissapointed today as I expect UConn to win this game. But, then again, I tend to be wrong on the rare occasion.
Just heading out to the court now - back in a bit.
No. 2 Michigan State vs. No. 1 Connecticut
