Duke lacrosse wins ACC championship

The Duke lacrosse team returned in style.

Duke downs UVA for ACC lax crown

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Matt Danowski and his fellow seniors had helped Duke win 40 games in their careers and reach the NCAA championship game in 2005.
This year, they can add another impressive — and more significant — accomplishment to their resumes.

Danowski and Zack Greer each scored three goals Sunday and the Duke lacrosse program continued its triumphant return by beating Virginia 12-9 in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship.

Danowski was the tournament’s most valuable player for the top-seeded Blue Devils (13-2), who won their fourth title and first since 2002.

It’s the latest on-field highlight for the Blue Devils in the road back from a rape scandal that led to charges against three former teammates — who were ultimately exonerated — and the cancellation of much of last season. Duke has won eight straight games heading into next weekend’s regular-season finale against Air Force, followed by a trip to the NCAA tournament in hopes of winning the title that eluded the Blue Devils in ’05.

“For us as seniors, we talked about leaving a legacy here,” said Danowski, honored as the ACC player of the year earlier this week. “It’s another testament to the character of the guys on this team and the way we’ve stuck (together) throughout this whole thing, kept our noses clean and just kept going and stayed with it.

“Today’s one of those payoffs. But you can’t fall back on that. It’s not the end-all, be-all for us.”

Good for them.

I had it all written, then I deleted it.  Theres some stuff going on personal like that is interfering with my promise.  I’m sorry, it took so long.


When I was in kindergarten, I don’t know if all states have it, it’s a prelude to 1st grade, it acclimates children to the basic disciplines necessary for gradeschool.  At the time I went (I think it changed later) we only went to kindergarten for half a day.  and that half of the day alternated at the semester break.  So if you went to the afternoon portion of kindergarten during the first semester, you went to kindergarten for the morning portion in the second.

I attended kindergarten in the second half when I was a child, so I went to day care at about 9 o’clock or so, when my mother went to work, rather than rushing off to school at 8 o’clock.

at 7:30am on one of the local superstations (actually, at the time I think it was fox’s toe in on channel 32) “Battle of the planets”/”G-Force” was on.  I fell in love with that show.  I had to be up at that time, because I had a big brother, we both had to wake up at the same time, thats just how it is.

Anyways, I fell in love with “Battle of the planets”/”G-Force” and when the semester changed, and I had to be at school at 8, rather than 12:30 I think it was, I would cry, I admit it, I would cry, trying to get my parents to let me be late for school so I could watch the rest of battle of the planets.

My brother was old enough to walk to school, so he wasn’t there at the time, but I was still small (freshly 5 I think) and I Wanted to watch my EFFING BATTLE OF THE PLANETS!!!!!!!!!

But I had to go to kindergarten, my parents were fascists.

Shoutout: to forged who remembered BotP/GF.

watching it now, I don’t know why I loved it, but I did.
