Remember Where You Were When...

I hadn't had a chance yet to compile pics from the game. Here goes...

Guess who got an official Chalmer's jersey signed by all 17 players? This is probably the last time I'm going to actually wear it. I think I'll get it framed. I'm not sure exactly how much I could get for it on ebay but I'm not going to sell it. ROCK CHALK!

Sheron's signature (lower right) is especially cool -- Chalmer's and Rush's are right in the middle.

a Few More Highlights

Not sure if you'd seen this over on my blog, where it has a more Seattle-based appeal, but this highlight reel from the UNC game is pretty fun, as Jamie's doing the talking:

In other news (?) the Downtown Barber Shop has restored Roy's picture to the main room and removed it from the bathroom, so that's some nice, if tardy, maturity. Is that news? It was in today's Times, so I guess it is . . .

Well, I guess it's back to work and all of that. Great pics, Aaron. Wish I could've been there . . .

Oh, I can't resist. I know we've all seen these highlights a hundred times (I've seen the entire game three times, for heaven's sake), but here's one more reel, from CBS:

Rock Chalk.

Parade on Mass

They estimate the crowd on Mass at 100,000 and I believe it. It stretched from 7th clear down to south park. Here's a shot from about 8th looking south.

Here's some pics from the parade.

After the parade there was a final celebration and award ceremony at the Fieldhouse. Here's the '88 trophy and rings.

Here's a closeup of the '88 rings.

And here's a closeup of Simien's championship ring with the Heat... bling, bling!

The News

I managed to get my hands on the LJW from yesterday. They were in high demand. I got the cover and big fold out pages laminated at Kinkos. There's a nice long section that talks about every player on the team. Here's the spread.

And here's the UDK, which was also hard to come by. I guess students took stacks at a time from the boxes yesterday so they reprinted a bunch and students were able to pick up copies today at the journalism building.

I may be able to get a few more copies and I can maybe send you guys one.
