rbsohio30 Posted March 28, 2007 Report Share Posted March 28, 2007 I thought this was a good readThe phone line crackled with static. Lamar Butler's voice faded in and out. "Can you hear me?" he said, his memory clearer than the overseas connection. Butler was recounting a moment from George Mason's historic run to the 2006 Final Four, but not from the day he and his teammates upset Michigan State in the opening round, or the day the 11th-seeded Patriots stunned North Carolina and reached the Sweet 16, or the day they felled mighty Connecticut in the Elite Eight, then cut down the nets and captured the attention of the nation. No, this moment took place after the cheering stopped and the limelight began to fade. It was about an hour after George Mason had lost to Florida in the national semifinals in Indianapolis, after the players had showered, changed clothes and dried their tears, and no one looked more despondent than Butler. He walked into the stands, found the section of George Mason faithful and trudged through the consoling fans before the assistant coach who recruited him to the school stopped him.http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaab/news;_ylt=Aj...o&type=lgns Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
