Allow me to quote Nancy Kerrigan: “Why, why, why? … Why meeee? Why meeeeeeee?”
That’s pretty much how I feel right now. Seriously Gonzaga, what the hell happened last night?
You blow a 17-point lead? You allow UCLA to score the last 11 points in the game? Losing is one thing, but is it necessary to put up one of the biggest crunch-time collapses in tournament history?
At the same time, I’m not at all surprised. Humiliating, history-making losses are commonplace for any sports team I choose to openly root for, especially in the post-season.
And one more thing, after the game ended, I flipped over to NBC hoping that an episode of The Office would make me less enraged. Naturally, it was a rerun, which served as the icing on top this horrific evening.
It’s a good thing I keep a flask in my desk. That’s the only thing that’s gonna get me through the rest of the day.
