Since Obama apparently decided to not leave some Technicolor rainbow jumpshots or sports-minded Care Bears behind after the debate back in February, my hometown Cleveland State Vikings proceeded to lose the Horizon conference title game on Tuesday. Goddamn fucking David Robinson. Oh, sorry, I was having flashbacks of 1986.
But I'm presented with a nice consolation prize, today's MAC title tilt between my almost-alma mater University of Akron Zips and the Kent State Golden Flashes. Hopefully, one of these teams can at least duplicate what Kent State did in 2002. Or better yet, what George Mason did in 2006. Or even better, this.
