For my alma mater Northwestern to make it to the NCAA tournament was a huge deal. Across the country and social media, Northwestern fans had a right to be proud today.
There is a simple greeting that NU students, alums and fans share, "Go Cats!" And when we face athletic challenges, we add our most ferocious growl and menacing paw. Here I am getting ready for today's grrrrrreat game!
I'm quite sure that the "Go Cats!" cheer was never amplified quite as loudly or broadly as it was today as the NU basketball team made us so very proud.
Yes, today was a great day to be a cat!
