Tebow-Mania and Cavalier Basketball on the Rise!!

Most people in America are all-Tebow-all-the-time this week (were those 316 passing yards truly miraculous?!) as they gear up for the Saturday night clash of Tim vs. Tom, but in Charlottesville we are relishing the Cavaliers' awesome 15-1 start to the season.


I loved the last play of the Broncos/Steelers game - DeMaryius Thomas cutting across the middle and Tebow hitting him in perfect stride reminded me of all the times Dad taught Tuck and me about leading and crossing-the-middle when we'd throw with him as kids.

It's hard to not get caught up in and enjoy the Tebow hype -- it's one of those moments when sports really does serve to bring people together.

Tonight UVa plays at Duke and there's a definite buzz about the possibility that we could pull off a big W and really propel the program forward.  Having followed the Duke defeats over the years, I'd be extremely surprised if we win tonight, but there's no doubt that Tony Bennett, Mike Scott and Sammy Zeglinski have the team moving in the right direction!!

Here's Dan's e-mail to me from this morning:  "How crazy are you going to blog if we upset the Dookies tonite, Baby!!"

You just have to love that form!!!

  1. There are 2 greats to watching Timmy T play:
    1) You are spot on-his form is just hilarious
    2) The linebackers seem to actually hesitate before the hit him, knowing how much it will hurt!

    Let's hope Tom puts this chump back in the collegiate ranks of the swamp!
