       March 26, 2005

    Tonight the Illinois basketball team snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. They defeated Arizona in overtime after trailing by 15 points with 4 minutes remaining. Wow. Hopefully Wisconsin and Michigan State will win tomorrow and join them in the Final Four.

    After the game, we decided to read the game thread on Illini Nation. It's a classic study in defeatism, faith and, finally, joy. Here's a sample.

    8:04 pm

    Sorry guys..the fat lady; she be warming up...

    8:05 pm

    It's been a good season.

    It's a shame this game had to end this way.

    8:06 pm

    I think I'm going to vomit. This is making me sick to my stomach. I hate Arizona.

    8:07 pm

    I just can't believe that it's over. I simply can't believe it.

    8:08 pm

    the fat beotch has been called off stage

    8:10 pm

    I don't mean to sound like a cynic (I'm not), but I have had a lifetime of disappointments when it comes to my sports teams. I am not surprised.

    8:12 pm

    I'm not watching, but I have seen this before. This is where your heart gets torn out and shown to you before you die!

    8:16 pm

    Holy crap. Please...

    8:18 pm



    8:21 pm


    8:21 pm

    OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Five minutes for the rest of your life and a game NOBODY can EVER take away from you....LET'S GO ILLINI!!!!

    8:23 pm

    Oooohhh! Overtime.

    Please don't stomp on my heart Illini.

    8:28 pm

    I'm literally peeing my pants right now.

    I can't believe Adams shot just went in.

    8:31 pm

    I think I would have given up my first born for Deron's last shot to go down. (Just kidding).

    8:32 pm

    We're screwed now.

    8:32 pm

    Oh crap, one last shot...we know who its going to.

    8:33 pm

    i'm so nervous. i can't feel my knees

    8:34 pm

    WE'RE GOING TO THE FINAL FOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    8:36 pm

    Simply put, the greatest game I have ever seen in my life. Told you there was a run left....

    8:38 pm

    Not to trivialize God but what an EASTER RESURRECTION!!!!

    8:43 pm

    THERE IS A GOD!!!!!! I LOVE LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was looking for commentary on the AZ/IL game and was directed here by Google. Sadly, my own blog this evening looks quite a bit like the thread above.

    I haven't been here before, but I love your site and will consider linking to it in the near future. Good stuff.

    Well, nuts.

    Illinois can forget about ever seeing MY kid as a student!

    Congrats to the Illini.

    God, I hope it's Illinois and Michigan State in the finals. Go Big Ten! Then, I hope Illinois beat Michigan State. I'm a big Dee Brown fan.
