The screaming was audible all over Minnesota last night when the Gophers beat Duke. It’s not quite the fanaticism I saw in Ohio with OSU football, but I think I kind of like this better. (Sorry Dawn.) This was definitely an interesting victory given Lindsay Whalen’s injury mid-season and Janel McCarville’s mom undergoing chemo but still making it to Norfolk to see her daughter play. If they win the championship, this will be big news for women’s sports here in Minnesota.
I have quite a few girls who play basketball in Jon’s congregations and quite a few who head to Gopher games whenever they can get tickets. Maybe I’ll see a few of them out there some day?
