Stanford pulls off another miracle over WSU on a crazy last minute scramble for a loose ball and a wild three pointer. Down 5 with 25 seconds left, it didn't look possible. The only comeback that could have topped the Cardinal victory tonight is if Omarosa ("I'm going to crush my competition and I'm going to enjoy doing it") could have avoided being fired after breaking down and then bursting into the Boardroom unannounced. Maybe she can blame her hysterics on the concussion from the piece of plaster that dropped on her head two episodes earlier.
Still, as much heat as she took, and I think she would have driven me crazy, I did read this quote in her online profile:
"The cartoon character that I most relate to is Optimus Prime from the 'The Transformers'. Optimus Prime is the leader of the Transformers and works as a powerful force of goodness, courage and wisdom in the battle against the evil Decepticons. He first tries to find peaceful solutions to conflicts, but when battle lines are drawn, he becomes a fierce warrior capable of overpowering vast enemy forces to achieve his goals."
Omarosa and Optimus: that is just perfect.
I'm fired up for the Stanford-UW men's hoops game on Saturday. Stanford will be gunning for a perfect season, and UW, second in the Pac-10, is the type of team that can give Stanford trouble with its athleticism and quickness. It may be the most important Stanford-UW men's hoops game ever, though admittedly that's not saying much. Hec Ed Pavilion is going to be rocking.
UPDATE: Hec Ed is no longer Hec Ed. It's now Bank of America Arena. It was indeed rocking, though, and the Cardinal got rocked. Ugly. That's the worst they've looked all year. I haven't seen so many airballs since the weekly pickup game at the gym. Fortunately, it was a meaningless game. All that matters is the Tourney.
