In Fairfax VA today, marching bands, cheerleaders, waving politicians, and school officials joined together to honor the George Mason basketball team.
The “little engine that could” put local life on a high with their accomplishments
during the joyous moments of this past NCAA March Madness .
The little upstart school accomplished what mid conference schools can
usually only dream about. .
They upset powerhouse basketball schools, Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State, and Connecticut before falling to Florida, who may also be another dynasty
in the making.
Our hats are off to these young athletics – today’s parade was just one way we can show
our pride in them and their 2006 accomplishments.
