So the college basketball tourney thingy is over. Apparently the Team of Closest Proximity was defeated by a Team of Distant Location. But what strikes me as interesting are the reactions of fans out in far-off East Coastia:
Butler beat VCU in the the semifinals, and Virginia Commonwealth University students rioted in the streets and set stuff on fire.
Butler was beaten by the U. Conn in the finals, and University of Connecticut students set stuff on fire and turned over cars.
What is in the water out there?
I'm, like, ten blocks from the Butler campus, and I can't hear any sirens or smell any smoke. As a matter of fact, it's all pretty quiet out here in arugula-deprived Bitterclingerville; it was a school night, after all.
