I'll be honest, I love that we had our "one shining moment," but what I'm about to say might get me the "first banned poster" award. I think that song sucks. It's an awful piano bar piece of garbage. I don't care if it's tradition or not. Never gave me goosebumps or a chill moment at any point when I watched it through all those years of watching the tourney.. Except for when SU won, and that chill moment was due to SU winning not the suckitude of that awful mid '80s cheese ballad. It sounds like something I'd hear as the winning song at Harborfest in Oswego. Something like this (and frankly I think this song is better):
I'm still kicking myself that I didn't even try to get tickets for the regionals in Albany when they first went on sale.Not much makes me sadder than the fact that I had a ticket to the Final Four in my hand, a friend who went to school in New Orleans I could have stayed with (in a sorority, no less!) but no way to get there, so I had to sell my ticket to the kid who sat next to me in Albany.
