Calamity Kate

Dear UConn,

Take note.

Love,

Your Tried and True

If you’re asking yourself, “is that UConn’s former star player, Donnell Marshall at the Bullpen standing about 15 feet away from Katie?” the answer would be, quite simply, yes.
I did take a creepy paparazzi picture, but in my defense, I owned up to it. And, yes, he shook my hand. And I didn’t wash it for the rest of the night. (Mostly just because they only have Port-O-Lets at the bar, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. TMI? Too bad).

Sometimes, you get what you wish for!

And sometimes, that’s a very good thing! Big East and NCAA Champs. I knew 2011 was going to be a good year. It’s been a good run, boys. So maybe it didn’t end in the prettyiest of ways (lowest scoring first half in a NCAA Championship since 1945 and lowest winning score since 1949!), but it sure had the right end result.

Until next year boys. (Kemba, I miss you already.)

Just a second for my boys.

Can we talk about this? And how UConn is not just the Big East tournament champ, but is one of two Big East teams left in the NCAA tournament? Big game tonight. Husky up!

Mine is suffering. March is just such a tough month…

I actually think it’s playing hard again," Calhoun said. "People in life, and basketball, too, I think let things dissuade them from being good or take away some of their energy or confidence. I guess that’s to be expected, but there’s the old saying about it’s not if you get knocked down, it’s how you get up. We’re not a desperate basketball team. We’re a team that’s going to keep on playing after this. But winning is very important. I still haven’t met a good loss.

Anyone else as excited as I am

about this? No? Just me? Well, get ready for it. Basketball season is riiiight around the corner.

Sorry you’re not feeling well, but we NEED you back.

Pronto Tanto.

I spy with my little eye…

a.) a girl whose parents gave her an amazing Christmas present;
b.) Bolton’s very own Kenny Borton on the UCONN bench;
c.) a man hooting, hollering, and fist pumping behind the UCONN bench while cheering for the wrong team (ahem, Ryan, cough cough); or
d.) all of the above.
