I knew Wildcats liked to eat Badgers......

Wisconsin Who? and Where is that exactly? Who knows. Who cares? Not I.

I just witnessed the most fantastic basketball game of all time. And if people don't know where Davidson is now, or have an idea of what Davidson College is all about, then I pity you. I wish you could have been with me on my way home from the Brickhouse Tavern. I wish you could hear all the horns honking. I was one of them. I saw people walking down the street. I didn't know who they were, but I saw them wearing Davidson red and I knew. I honked my horn, hand out the window, and you know what? They screamed and waved back. That is what is so special about this town and this TEAM. They are bringing a close knit town even closer. It feels like we are on the court with them, we feel, we scream. Hell, you would think that crowd at the Brick was there in Detroit. Screaming, "Lets Go Wildcats", "DAV-ID-SON"!!!! I wish you could have been there. I don't think I have ever been a part of something so special, so amazing, so inspiring. Davidson Darlings? Cinderella Story? Glass Slipper? None of those fit, because this team deserves to be there. Kansas......you better run 'cause I'm not sure you can stop JAMST Express. Jason, Andrew, Max, Stephen and Thomas. Bryant, I would have put you in there took, but I couldn't make the acronym work (as well as it did anyway!) 'CATS, I love you all, and you are the spirit, heart, and the breath of this town!
