  • Lifting each other up, despite the fall

    There’s no denying it, I’m a Butler fan. I couldn’t hide it if I tried.
    Most times, especially during the NCAA tournament, I root for the underdog. I like to see the folks who don’t ‘win all the time’ make a run at the big prize.

    It makes me especially happy to watch a mid-mid-major school like VCU stump its opponents and silence its critics. But if they had to lose to anybody, I’m glad it was Butler.
