Congratulations George Mason University!

"Simply A-Mason! What do you call a miracle when you have to pull it twice? No. 11 seed George Mason rallied from 12 down and survived a buzzer-beating layup in regulation and a final 3-point attempt in OT to stun UConn 86-84 and earn a berth in the Final Four. " -Courtesy

As a state legislator, I am so proud of Virginia's team, the George Mason University Patriots. This group of young men showed tremendous courage in the face of the perennial powerhouse Connecticut Huskies. As the General Assembly convenes on March 27th, each legislator should bring with him this hopeful spirit and dogged determination to achieve a victory for the people of Virginia. This accomplishment can only be a common sense budget addressing the state's needs without a tax increase.
