National Champs

Earlier I mentioned that my undergrad alma mater, Appalachian State University, was playing for the NCAA I-AA national championship. Well, they won, the first national title in any sport for the university. Congratulations to one and all. When I was there, they had a Top 10 soccer program, full of African and Irish and South American players. Thompson Usiyan, from Nigeria, remains the most awesome athlete I’ve ever seen perform in person. There was another Nigerian player who needed some help in math classes and had the bad luck to draw me as a tutor.
