My colleague Greg Bobak typed the historic words at 3:32pm... ":05, NATIONAL CHAMPIONS, 13-10 FINAL." The Northwestern Women's Lacrosse team has just downed Virginia to give NU its first national crown since 1941, which was Men's Fencing. I am not going to pretend and say I have been following the team religiously all season long. Howvever, any type of championship at Northwestern is something to be proud of. especially if you are a student. I am also proud to be a part of WNUR Sports, who sent Guy Benson and Frank Tormey to call the action. This is something they will always remember... Stephanie Churchwell, way back, she looks up, YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD, YESSSSSSSSS!!! NU now leads ND 2-1 in the bottom half of the 3rd. Dan Platt nearly joined the excitement at home plate after calling that bomb.

The White Sox may have lost to the Cubbies moments ago, but we still took 2 of 3 @ Wrigley and sit at 31-13. In Dusty they Sucky.

Before I sign off for the time being, a quick note: If NU wins and DePaul holds on and wins the Madison region, then the Wildcats could be on tap for a SuperRegional matchup in the Windy City. Wishful Thinking or Thinking Wishfully?
