The spring sun shines down on Lawrence today. Flowers and trees bloom. Children, free from the shackles of winter, joyfully peddle bikes down streets. The whole town pulses with energy after KU's victory over North Carolina last night.
After the final buzzer, I stepped out to my backyard. A cacophony of whoops, hollers, car horns, and joyful screams reverberated throughout the town. Fireworks even illuminated the sky. Saying that this was amazing is an understatement.
I didn't join the throngs of revelers who congregated downtown. I'm hoping that I'm able to do that for the real celebration tomorrow night.
Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
