(2) Tue Mar 14 2006 11:30 Saturday...Neuter Alphie: It was finally saturday and time for the Championship game. We were getting ready when I got a phone call from Pak. He wanted me to have his seats because he knew they were better than ours and was afraid they wouldn't give us a student section again (although Nevada got one). We gladly took the seats and accomplished another goal (becoming David's family). David is our point guard from Orange, Cali. and a very good friend of mine. He is very hot, and I would trust him with my life. He also is a registered sex offender who spent 8 years in some mean youth correctional facilities for aggravated rape when he was 16. Prison is actually where he learned to play ball (and he does play some very ghetto prison ball). But while there he recognized the direction his life was heading did a 180 and changed it completely. WE were happy to take his family tickets (they couldn't get there) and watch the game with the players parents. That was one of the best games I have ever witnessed and if the refs had called a 5th foul on Fazekius (we like to call him something else) then we would have secured a win in the last minute. But instead we went into overtime and barely lost the championship title. It was really sad, but such is life in basketball. We spent the rest of the night at the nugget casino with the boys and had a good time, accomplishing all of our goals. Driving home on sunday was by far the best part of the trip when we heard we made it into the NCAA anyway. Now I am home in Salt Lake happy to walk into buildings where you can't smoke and doing a whole lot of nothing. i like it.

it's funny cause I never did until college. It helps being friends with some of the team, makes it more interesting to watch, but yeah it's weird....i never thought i would like it either. :)
