In Gainesville

Fear the "Bruce-O'-Lantern"?

I decided to visit the ole' college town this weekend to see the Gator hoopsters face Bruce Pearl’s Tennessee Vols. Here is hoping Bruce keeps his shirt on.

I’m looking forward to the game at the O’Dome. I became a basketball booster this year for the first time, but with living in south Florida and games sometimes on Wednesday nights, I haven’t come as often as I would have liked.

Go Gators!

UPDATE: The Vols were not much a match with their best player Lofton sidelined. The Gator's won easily, made doubly sweet for yours truly with the last second putback dunk that pushed the game over the 15 points the Gators were favored by.

Gainesville. Like Rock n Roll, you can come back baby, 'cause it never forgets.

Today's win was sweet revenge for our basketball team after last year.

NOW we need this good karma to be with the Chicago Bears tomorrow - four of our former Gators are up against Peyton Manning and the Colts. This Gator will be saying BEAR DOWN CHICAGO BEARS and hoping the Year of the Gator stays alive!
