Today the WVU Mountaineers take on the Duke Blue Devils in the NCAA Final Four. Good luck to the Mountaineers as they try to move on to the Championship Game on Monday night against the winner of the Bulter vs. Michigan State contest.
West Virginians everywhere are excited about the game and proud of the hard work and dedication put in by the Mountaineer players, coaches and staff. It is a great day to be a Mountaineer!
All week it has been exciting to watch the buzz and excitement grow throughout the state. I loved this picture of some Mountaineers leaving Morgantown headed to Indianapolis with their cooler and couch strapped to back. I had to share it with everyone. Thanks to Lisa Simmons for the photo. You have to be a Mountaineer to understand the couch burning tradition (some history on the tradition and one of my favorite videos below).
