OK, we've got a moratorium on politics here at least until Wednesday

Because we here have other things on our mind. First, go to the CA website and see the picture and the caption: The FIRST #1 SEED TO FALL..... UCLA.
Damn skippy. As you may have noticed, especially if you are a Memphian, the Memphis Tigers exorcised 35 years of demons against the sons of Westwood, dominating UCLA, 78-63 in the first National Semifinal. They will face the Kansas Jayhawks, who blew out to a 28-point lead in the first half, only to see North Carolina pulling within four points in the second half, only to see the Tar Heels run out of gas and lose.
What I enjoyed was watching the guys afterward and noticing that, while they were happy, they were not overjoyed, because they knew that the job is not yet finished. 39-1 must be achieved.
But until Monday at 8:17 P.M., let me offer the comments of the gentleman who is the person after whom this blog was named, and who was a freshman at MSU when they lost to the Bruins in 1973: FUCK BILL WALTON.
GO TIGERS, ONE MORE TO GO.
