The Easily Confused Brit

I am not a huge basketball fan. Nor am I completely au fait with the myriad choices in American higher education. Therefore I think I can be excused my surprise when I mixed up two universities, George Mason and James Madison, and marvelled to myself in the car that a seat of higher learning named after this slightly creepy character actor had made the NCAA Final Four:


James Mason University: Go Fighting Lolitas! If only Mr. Abbot covered NCAA as well as NBA basketball I wouldn't feel so silly.

That's what triggered the thought. I was wondering to myself why all of you were being so quiet. If my college had provided me with a vicarious sense of acomplishment 10 years after I graduated I be shouting about it everywhere, and so I was puzzled. Then my error dawned on me.

I though I saw a missive from Mondale but now it is gone. Anyone else been having trouble with blogger recently? The photo upload was offline last night and pages haven't been loading. Hmmm.

I was there, I made a dispariging comment about Poly of North London's basketball team.

We were crap at everything except rugby, squash, and pro-celebrity 4x4 Marxist dialectics relay running.
