I drive a Volkswagen with a key fob where the key flips out like a switchblade. Every day, when leaving the building, I extract my keys from my pocket and open the car key. I extend my right hand along my side, not quite resting at my hip, key angled slightly out and down, like a katana.
Quick update: VCU gave me a scare on Friday night beating Florida State by 1 point in overtime, and University of Richmond fell hard to Kansas. But my VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY Rams soundly defeated Kansas this afternoon 71-61 to advance to the Final Four.
Looks like I’m watching more basketball next weekend!
I earned my bachelor’s degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. I’m working on my business degree from the University of Richmond right now. Each of these schools face challenging opponents tonight in the Sweet Sixteen round of play in the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament. It’s the first time both schools have been in the Sweet Sixteen together, and VCU’s first time making it this far at all. Here’s hoping for victory for both of my schools so they can face each other in the Elite Eight on Sunday!
Here’s to watching nearly 5 hours of basketball this evening…
