What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
I would have to say that they single moment that stands out to me or for me is my very first basketball game! Once I saw the team play I was more than confident that they were going all the way...no doubt in my mind!

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
I was not able to travel with the team like I would have like to but I was definitely there the entire time in spirit. I consider myself their number one fan, and I support them 100%. Even when our guys were no longer in the tournament, I continued to wear the Mason green and gold shirts everyday until the end of the tournament. I made a vow at the beginning of the tournament that I would support them the whole way through and I did!!! I was in tears when they crushed Michigan, North Carolina, Wichita, and UCONN because I felt personally connected to the team and their emotions even though I knew only one of them personally. I felt like I was a part of the team and I just wanted to share my excitement with them. I know it would have been really awkward for them if some random girl walked up to them and said "I LOVE YOU ALL!" So I refrained but inmy heart the entire ride that exactly how I felt...and I still do!!

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
This just mean that George Mason University has started something great and I know that they will go just as far this season coming up and FARTHER! I am not going to let anything hold me back from traveling with my favorite team in the whole world. I feel every team needs its number one fan at every game...and my goal is to make sure that I am there!!!
