I like this quote from ESPN: These Mountaineers were not given a chance to be an elite team two years ago, but a perfect storm collected these wayward hoop souls for glorious runs to the Elite Eight and Sweet 16.
So, my Eers have ended their run in the NCAA tournament and their feats won’t likely be matched again for a long, long time. Two consecutive trips to the Sweet Sixteen? West Virginia University? Are you serious? Haha. Glorious runs indeed.
The past few days have been very, very difficult on a lot of levels. I don’t want to discuss any of it, but there is great wisdom in that 50’s do-wop song “Breaking Up is Hard to Do.”
Because of my aforementioned heartache, my father has purchased a plane ticket for me to fly home. Pittsburgh home. Home home. The place where my head and my heart can be fixed. Woo hoo! Although it’s not the tropical destination Spring Break so often envisioned, it’s going to be wonderful.
