Who wants to go to the Final Four?

Seriously...it's in St. Louis this year...and the Illini are playing like they deserve to be in it.

Especially tonight...19-0 #1 vs. 38-game home winning streak (the longest active in the nation). As Dick Vitale would not stop saying all night, something had to give. And the boys from a little town called Champaign prevailed...though not without nearly giving me a heart attack.

On a somewhat related note, the NCAA Wrestling Championships are also in the Lou this spring, and I already (pretty much) have a ticket in the Boeing suite to the finals. The Illini wrestlers are 10-1 on the year, their only loss coming to #1 Oklahoma State, and are ranked #2.

March could be a good championship month in St. Louis for us...
