08.2007: week 2

It's been quite a busy summer, so I haven't had much time for digging into the 'ole archive.

It's back-to-school season over at UR, home of the Spiders. During the 2004-2005 basketball season, the Spiders women's basketball team cruised into the NCAA Tournament. They were to play Florida State at UConn. I got to travel along for a great weekend in Hartford, but a disappointing game. After a long night, our mascot decided to take a tour of the hotel. We joined up with Kate (left), the team's senior leader, for a visit to Coach Boyle's door -- at 2 AM. They knocked, she answered, and we had a little photo op.

And to all of you Florida State fans out there, remind your band that a spider is not an insect.
