the aftermath in hoyaland



We just got off the phone with a certain member of Georgetown's Class of '08. After this evening's game, an incredible come-from-behind OT victory, students spilled out of the campus and onto M Street. The DC police were forced to close about a mile of M Street, as well as the Francis Scott Key Bridge across the Potomac, due to hundreds of students clogging these main arteries. Our '08 was among the first to arrive and she said it was an amazing experience, beyond description. Strangers were hugging and yelling and running together.

P.S. I believe Richie was rooting for the Hoyas.

ooops, I guess I didn't explain it very well, but we didn't shut down the Key Bridge (there's nowhere to go in Virginia), we shut down a giant bridge that crosses a highway on the way to Foggy Bottom, about a mile from the end of M St. So we shut down the main st of Georgetown and one of the busiest ones in the city. It's a straight shot to the White House, so about 1000 of us made it there. :)
