george mason – the bracket buster

I’m pretty excited that my bracket is horrible right now because George Mason upset UConn today to go to the final 4.

The Patriots became the second double-digit seed to make the Final Four, matching LSU’s run, also as an 11th seed, in 1986. The Colonial Athletic Association team is the first true outsider to crash the Final Four since Penn and Indiana State both got there in 1979.

Why do I care about GMU, you say? Well, for one, Patricia grew up blocks from the campus in Fairfax, VA. Second, when Patricia started our ministry together, it was at George Mason. We were on that campus daily from 98-99.

So we’re pretty happy about this. Cool! Go Patriots!
