Fantastic Four

Final Four Bracket

Kyle, Erik, and I spent our Saturday at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field. Philly was hosting the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships, so we grabbed tickets to the Division I Final Four. We’ve gone to championship weekend in 2013 and 2015, and this is the last time Philly will be hosting until at least 2019.

I may have completely disregarded slightly bent my surgeon’s orders by driving before Monday, but nothing was keeping me from the games. My stubbornness bit me in the apple-shaped bottom, however, because it was crazy hot, and I underestimated the amount of walking I had to do. I did not feel well before the games, and felt worse afterward, but I survived.

No thanks to a punk kid who accidentally elbowed my in the stitches…

As you can see, we had kickass seats for the event.

Final Four 2016

The games were entertaining. In the first, North Carolina built a huge lead on Loyola, who started a comeback, but could not pull off a win. Carolina moved on to today’s final by a score of 18-13. The Maryland-Brown game was much more exciting; a back and forth battle which went to overtime, with – thankfully – Maryland pulling out the victory, 15-14.

Today’s final will feature North Carolina versus Maryland. It can be seen on ESPN2 at 1pm. The boys and I will be rooting for Maryland. Go Terps!
