Knights Prevail: Gators Cursed in the Amway Yet Again

Congratulations to the home team, the UCF Knights Men’s Basketball Team took on (and overcame) the #16 ranked Florida Gators tonight.  While we’re huge Gator fans, even we can recognize a great effort when we see one.  Over 13,000 fans cheered as UCF led Florida in a 57-54 victory.

Michael Jordan's son Marcus is a leader for the Golden Knights.

The two teams met in the Florida Citrus Sports Shoot Out and had the honor of playing the first collegiate game in the new Amway Center. This is actually a second for the Gators. Back in 1988, they also had the honor of playing in the first collegiate game in the old Amway Arena.  Top 5 editor Bess Auer was a cheerleader at that game and remembers it well.  “We lost to Stanford,” she sighed. “I guess the Gators and Amway just don’t go well together.”

Perhaps not, but the Golden Knights sure do…congrats!

Chomp, Chomp, Gator Chomp!

Florida football starts today!  And to celebrate, I am posting the latest “stuck in my head” song: “Gator Chomp!”

Now, for you Gator-haters out there, I will be happy to give equal playing time to other school videos, as long as they are positive and related to the great state of Florida. (As I said before, I’m a gracious Gator!) So feel free to post a link in the comments or send me a link to your favorite video of your school’s football team.

Let’s get ready for some football!
