That Makes All the Difference

Battling through the very difficult circuit of Ivy League basketball, Cornell University took home the divisional title and in the process earned an automatic bid for the NCAA tournament. Overly exuberant fans rushed the court following Big Red’s win over Penn and in the process trampled the scorers table and computer. So it’s true, Cornell really does know how to party, right Andy?

Following the game on Saturday though, a Cornell spokesman announced that the final score, as listed, was incorrect. Instead of Cornell winning the title with a 83-58 victory, in reality they won 83-59! Watching video of the end of the game, a 3-pointer was changed to a 2 and a buzzer beating basket was counted as well, leading to the change.

Thank GOD they cleared that up right?!! I was worried that they weren’t going to fix this mistake, now that they have, I can finally sleep again. I lay in bed all night last night distraught at the lengths Cornell went to in order to humiliate the fine Quakers of UPenn. Our long national nightmare is over.

I Like Matt Kemp

“You’re late,” Manny Ramirez told Matt Kemp when he strolled into the clubhouse at 8:30 a.m.. “I was here at 6:30.”

“I was here three weeks ago,” replied Kemp.
