What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
The Final Four

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
I graduated from GMU in 1983 Basketball when games were held in the P.E. building. In fact, first game that I attended was GMU's 65-64 loss to Maryland in the first game at the brand new Patriot Center while I was in Law School at William & Mary. There were only about 4500 fans there. Next to the Redskins first Super Bowl win, this ranks as the No. 1 moment in my life as a sports fan.

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
I hope it makes Mason an annual participant in the tournament. I doubt they'll ever reach another Final Four. But, I can live off if this one for a long time.
