other than the times attending the games (mebbe 1/2 dozen gardenfests), most of the time as an adult, i made plans to be in the high country to watch the gang, schuss, and etc with pals, some even fans of our rivals. big fun. a wonderful big east tourney routine, replete with husky haute couture, and pizza. as much as i was hopeful for the aac experiment, it didn't work out. the 'come back inside for the games' for that tourney never had juice. i guess i didn't have enuf pals who went to wichita state or east carolina. anyway, what's old is thankfully new again, so, any resumption of old times BE tourney routines out there? looks like my loser st johns pals are going to be in if it goes down, with their 24/7 red clothes wearing (embarrassing), and mebbe some friar clamheads too, but no more vnova pussycats-those people never shut up. it all started very young for me, when i would march around home and school, and inform everyone 'stay back! it's Husky Week! im busy!' i mean, seriously, when do you ever get a chance in life to see ur team play as many as 5 sudden-death games in 5 days! i never could convince the rents that it was a national holiday, and that i should be absolved of all duties, including school. lol.
