Couple of upsets already in NCAA regional play. Maybe not on the order of Holy Cross-Minnesota last year, but UMass knocked Clarkson out today, 1-0, and Maine beat St. Cloud State 4-1. And it took Notre Dame two OT periods to defeat Alabama-Huntsville.
I hope St. Lawrence will be able to continue the unexpected tomorrow in their game against BC. Which I won’t be able to follow along with at all, since I’m going to be in Pittsburgh for the Pens-Thrashers game and some Ikea. Hopefully I’ll return home to a positive result.
And now for the OT (off-topic, not overtime), I finally got to see Flag Wars. I missed it when it was originally on PBS and have been waiting for four years for it to come out on DVD. It finally was released this week, and I got it from Netflix. I highly recommend it to anyone who’s interested in urban issues, gentrification, or the politics of race and class in the contemporary USA. Or anyone who’s from Columbus and just wants the little frisson of excitement of seeing familiar places in a documentary.
