Huskies and Sox

I wrote last year about the University of Connecticut Women’s basketball team’s ultimately unsuccessful drive toward a national championship. Tonight, undefeated all season, we cheerfully watched them thump Stanford—the team that knocked them out last year—in the semi-final game. And on Tuesday night, we expect cheerfully to watch them thump dark-horse Louisville, finish the year 39-0 and bring home the trophy as one of the very best collegiate teams ever.

And Boston’s baseball season begins tomorrow.

So Wednesday, I expect to be able to say, “O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
