Connecticut in Florida


The national champion Connecticut women's basketball team came to southwest Florida
last weekend for a tournament.  They slaughtered the competition.


During every break in play, Coach Auriemma pushed his team to fix mistakes.
Geno is not a complacent guy.


Some UConn fans are over the top.

I think over the top would be an understatement in this case!

Great action shots, Jack. Looks like U-Conn has strong team unity, and an amazing reach.

That's not nice. "Slaughtered"? Boy, you Connecticutians are tough!

Love your new header...that pier is wonderful and we've spent many wonderful evenings out there.

On the Saturday of cricket Test matches (international games which last five days) played in Yorkshire, there is a tradition of a large section of the crowd turning up in fancy dress - usually plenty of gorillas, supermen and nuns! It's a nice custom but actually dates back to the time when miners and factory workers were supposed to be at work on Saturday. They wore costumes so that they could not be recognised by their bosses who were at the game.

I like that first shot: the long arms of basketball players. And I'm not sure if the basketball head tops some cheeseheads I've seen but it's in the same wacky territory.
