What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
Watching a complete basketball game for the first time

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
I don't like basketball. Period. But after reluctantly going to the game at the Patriot Center against UNCW gave me an adrenaline rush that kept me coming back for all the home games since. When we got in to the NCAA tournament, people started talking about the brackets and seeds, and I had no idea what people were talking about. I just wanted Mason to win. After this awesome run in the Tournament I look back and realize that I have learned a few things: 1- I know what a post, a backdoor pass and a 'zone defense' is. 2- You always need to give 100% in everything you do and 3- Only you can shape your own destiny.

PS. I tried to watch an NBA game last week. I was bored to death. I guess I still don't like basketball...

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
Besides all the media attention the school got, it brought a sense of unity throughout the school community. It was cool seeing all these different people screaming and jumpimg together during the games.
