I try to stay away from non-related topics in this blog, but today I couldn't resist. My alma mater, Cornell University, is playing tonight in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA College Basketball Tournament. This is quite an achievement for an Ivy League school, where athletic scholarships are not allowed. It's the first time an Ivy League team has gone this far in the tournament since 1979.
So I for one will be cheering hard tonight, rooting for true student athletes!
