Here We Go Again!!!

Northwestern is back in the National Championship game! After one of the hardest played, most exciting women's lacrosse tournament games in the 25 year history of the event, NU emerged victorious 11-10. I'm exhausted. On the play by play for one of the most exciting NU sporting events in recent memory, I feel immensely blessed. I also feel relieved. After this game went to OT, I knew Howard Tilman was waiting, hoping for an NU victory so he could have the play by play for this Sunday's title game. He (and I) got his wish. Simply a remarkable evening. And its only half over, believe it or not, since Notre Dame and Dartmouth have just gotten underway to decide who plays NU in the National Championship game.

Howard was at the post-game press conference, listening in on the thoughts of the Duke players on their heartbreaking loss and the jubilation of the 'Cats after this huge win. Its great stuff. Check back in a few minutes for another post with links to all that great audio.

Cheers, and GO 'Cats!
