Close, but no Cigar
I came home today to the Michigan-Illinois basketball game on my TiVo. Michigan's basketball program hasn't done very well since they cleaned up the program, so I didn't have high hopes for the Wolverines versus the 14th-ranked Illini. But I figured I could fast-forward through the parts where Michigan was behind by more than a basket or two. I expected to be through with the game in a few minutes. To my surprise, Michigan took an early lead and hung in there most of the game. Sadly, the operative word is "most". They ended up falling 68-60. Oh, well.
