We could all use a little college basketball

Wednesday evening was the first time this season I’d seen my local college basketball team, the Patriots of George Mason, play a home game on TV. Playing down the road from me in Fairfax, Virginia, the Patriots dropped their in-state battle with VCU, but I delighted in seeing the game on the small screen with my boy. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to color commentary from my favorite living author, John Feinstein, though the highlight for my son and me was examining the crowd shots for our cardboard selves at EagleBank Arena (nee Patriot Center).

Some day we take the cutouts home.

And sit there ourselves!
