Final Four: Testing, testing, 1-2-3

By Jerry Palm - March 30, 2007

While I'm waiting for the Buckeyes to take the floor, I thought this would be a good time to test out my internet connection. I about half an hour, I'll be in the interview room, which has all the ambiance of a dungeon, listening to Billy Donovan pontificate on some subject or another. I'll have all that for you when it's over.

Meanwhile, I've been hanging out in the dome, pestering as many people as possible. I tried to make it difficult for David and Eric to get any work done, but they were too focused, so I headed over to the CSTV set for a while. There, I got to meet selection committee chairman Gary Walters and chat him up a bit while the CSTV crew worked out some technical difficulties. Nothing earth shaking came from that conversation except that he indicated that while he enjoyed his time on the committee, he is looking forward to getting the time that takes back into his life.

Ohio St just walked out onto the court in front of me. I can report to you that Greg Oden is one big dude in person. I'm sure I'll have more shocking revelations later.

While UCLA was on the floor, I walked around past their band and some young reporter-type was interviewing one of the Veela, er, dancers. I eavesdropped and this is what I was able to pick up:

Young Reporter: "Hi, I'm from the New York Times. Can I interview you for a story I'm doing on dance teams?
Veela: "Sure!"
YR: "Thanks! What's your name?"
Veela: "Veela!"
YR: "Can I have your phone number, Veela? You know, in case I have to, um, follow up with you?"

Or perhaps that's what YR was hoping for.
