On a lighter note than the previous post...
A. and I went to the Cowgirls-Ducks basketball game last night with a couple of friends. It was so nice to get out of the thesis/work routine and just hang out with friends!
The women's team made a new record in attendance: 7,362 fans! I am glad to see the women's basketball team (who I think play a cleaner, stronger game fundamentally than the men's team) draw such a large crowd. They deserve it. It really was satisfying to hear so many fans cheering for the women. It created a great atmosphere for the athletes. One of the starters on the team is a student-worker in my office. I have nothing but the highest regard for her character and it was rewarding to watch her play such a good game last night.
The Cowgirls won and move on to the Elite Eight in the NIT Tournament. They play South Dakota State University this Sunday.
