Pulled up to work and saw some lady selling parking (using two homemade signs) on a side street, literally three hours before today’s send-off pep rally. So, that’s where we’re at.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any nuttier, we received our first interview request for Rodney the Ram today (true story).

The amount of media coverage VCU is getting right now is so off the charts. I know you guys are used to me throwing up links to features on VCU, but to be honest, the sheer bulk of clippings is mind-numbing. That’s why we have graduate assistants do it!

I didn’t look if these two items made that list, but here’s a couple VCU-centric items I thought you’d enjoy. First is a collection of things you might not have known or seen by Mike Litos. As usual, Jamie Skeen steals the show.

Additionally, WRIC here in Richmond did a nice piece on Chris “Pavarotti” Crowley, who will be making the trip to Houston.

Thirdish, but not necessarily related to all the craziness here on campus is a nod to former Ram Jamal Shuler, who is enjoying VCU’s Final Four run from across the pond in France. Shu is up for player of the week or month or something in the French League. If you understand French, you’ll be able to figure out what you’re voting for. I dropped out of French 3, so I have no idea. I know how to say, “I’m confused”, “Can I go to the bathroom” and “I don’t understand”. Either way, vote for Shu because he’s good people.

NINJA EDIT: Looks like we were on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night too. There’s some laughs in there, even if he takes some good-natured shots. Tell you what, as long as Jimmy promises not to make a sequel to Taxi, he can say anything he wants.
