Was standing immediately behind the top row of Lower Level seats behind UVA


bench (the hugh lounge area just behind me).

About half Hoos and half Auburn fans in this immediate area (though was behind a UVA section).

Bubba Alabama was quite chatty throughout the game just over my right shoulder. I returned his cordial exchanges.

As the cheese got binding in the final minutes, the level of heat in the exchanges rose, ultimately with either one of us basically yelling in the other's direction following major plays. When Kyle's buzzer-beater attempt bounced away, Auburn guy went nuts, yelling full throat in my ear.

I didn't blink.

Just stared at the court trying to make sense of it.

A few seconds later, word spread like wildfire throughout the Stadium that the Tiger fouled Kyle.

I jumped up on the folding chair in the now-empty row just in from of me and just behind the permanent seats, doing a major celebratory dance/shout/hands in the air - ne'er even looked back at Auburn-guy. Think I heard him shout some obscenities. Know he was in dire pain watching my happy dance.

Better luck next time, bubba.
