George MASON?

You've got to be kidding me. George Mason just beat UConn? Billy Packer and Jim Nance were wrong I guess about GM not being "good enough" to be in...

What?!?!?!?!?!?!? An eleven seed is headed to the final four? An ELEVEN? This hasn't happened since LSU back in like '86.

Considering I had Duke and UConn picked for the final game, um. It's a good thing I guess that I'm not the big betting type.

(I'm a bit of a sports fan, in case you didn't know.)

It makes me feel a ton better since they beat my Heels. I always love Duke exiting before the final four as they've done a lot lately. This is a crazy year. Not a single number one seed in the Final Four.

well, since i had my boys (BC Eagles) in the FF i am less interested in the tourney, but i LOVE that GMU made it. I think this is what college sports is about. and i am sports nut too. I remind my husband all the time how lucky he is!

It's hard to hate right now, you've got a team that's nothing but heart and a coach who's telling them to just keep having fun.

We know we're not supposed to be here, that this wasn't supposed to happen, but it's happening. How can you hate a bunch of guys who weren't scouted, who aren't in nice apartments driving fancy cars the alumni paid for, that are as concerned about their academics as they are about the game?

This is what college basketball is all about --w e are living the Disney movie right now. In a couple years it will probably be just as bad here as at the big 10 schools, but I'm just going to enjoy the moment for right now.

I'm not hating on anyone... trust me - I'm as wowed by the Cinderella story as the next person.

And to be honest, I'm kind of happy about it.

The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for four consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.

The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros – 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action. The men’s final is best 3-out-of-5 sets with every other match in both men’s and women’s singles and doubles will be best 2-out-of-3.

Known as Tennis' 5th Grand Slam, the Sony Ericsson Open is second only to the US Open in attendance for American events.Championship Tennis Tours since 1987 sells Sony Ericsson Open Tennis Tickets and Sony Ericsson Open Tennis Packages.
