They just made it past the first round in the NCAA tournament. For a tiny school like Siena- that's huge. Epic, really. Can they make it past the second round? Might they run into Pitt (my wife's alma mater)? I'll be honest, I'm pretty curious to see how it turns out.
The surreal thing? The aforementioned Fish Commission at work (of "Munch Out" fame) is doing a "March Madness" thing. Instead of a bunch of wannabe jocks sitting around the water cooler playing their brackets, they randomly assigned people teams. Your team gets to the Sweet Sixteen? You win a prize. Final four? Bigger prize. Takes the whole thing? Even bigger prize. No, I didn't get assigned Siena, but some people did.
It's so strange to see Siena getting attention at work. Most of the time, when I mention Siena, I get a blank look. Not any more, apparently.
