It snowed in Richmond yesterday. Which may have been the first clue that the day would be a bit unusual. A fact borne out when the VCU Rams advanced to the Final Four in the basketball championships.
Now we’ve had a few run-ins with VCU students, loud parties, blow-up dolls, graffiti, broken bottles and the like, but I have to commend the fans. I saw a number of them singing the VCU fight song and dancing down the sidewalks, arm in arm, immediately following the game. Then, last night, some 5,000 of them packed the Siegel Center to welcome home their team. It was 2 am.
This morning, things are quiet … and it’s threatening to snow again.
