What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
Camping out for over 20 hours for my tickets for the sweet 16!!

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
Alright, WOW...im still going crazy! i will become a giddy lil girl when i see a basketball player and act like its some Celebrity when i see them on campus--but back to the question asked;
No regrets on the money spent, class skipped, and time i put into this season!! it was unbelievable. I am poor as a result of this season, but who isnt? Anyway, I camped out for the sweet 16 tickets, knowing i was obligated to work on sunday, the prospective day of the UCONN game. Well i went to the WSU game with the mindset of if we win tonight, ill get someone to work for me. Hmmmm, negitive. Well once we beat Witchita State University that Friday night, i texted/called all my coworkers and NOT ONE could cover for me. (sigh) what was i going to do. Everyone in the staduim was cheering and going nuts, and im frustrated b/c was i to QUIT my job, or miss the game to fulfill my obligation. [well if you did not ketch my name before, you may not know how the story ended...] Sunday was the best day of my SEMESTER!!! I quit my job at the little gym in Fairfax corner, went to the UCONN game...LOVED IT, talked to a reported and got my story in the WashingtonPost--and made the best decision of my life. You only live once, and Mason v Uconn...So glad i did not listen to my boss when he said, "its just a game, you have to see the big picture; you have the choice, your job or the game." well im Molly McCormick, a HUUUGE Mason Fan, so im unemployed, big deal. Mason killed it on Sunday, and from then on out i followed them to INDY and Back home. I love the Mason Players and the wonderful ride we embarked on ever since playing UNCW, JMU, and VCU!!!

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
RECOGNITION....FINALLY!!!!
