Final Four Faces of Victory

Gamecock Women Win 72 – 63!!

And THIS is the face of victory!!

Pretty’s smile says it all

Congratulations to Coach Dawn Staley and the entire Gamecock women’s basketball team for their amazing win tonight in the Final Four semi-finals!

We will meet the OTHER SEC team in the Final Four Final this Sunday – congratulations to Mississippi State for their remarkable OT victory over UCONN to snap their 111-game winning streak. Thank goodness.

P.S. Will somebody please help Pretty and me keep ET and CT straight? We thought we were an hour early for the game tonight until I walked in to the music of a woman singing the national anthem. Pretty was even later than me – she made it just under the wire at the end of the starting lineup introductions. We ain’t right.

    That is a gorgeous picture of Teresa. I always try to find you guys in the stands, but so far, no luck! I had to laugh at you forgetting about the hour gain. Wait a minute. I’m confused. If you were going from ET to CT, you should have been early, not late.
