Dear Basketball Gods: Please Do Not Let HBO Jinx The UConn Women
Huffington Post - 12 months
I was terrified when I saw that HBO was planning a series of documentary-style specials on the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team. Don’t get me wrong. UConn: The March To Madness, which began last Wednesday and continues this Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET, is well-done and well-deserved. Under coach Geno Auriemma, this team has won 107 games in a row. No one does that. It’s just crazy. And as a fan, I love it, which is why the HBO Sports production is making me crazy, too. Why? The jinx thing, that’s why. All fans know about the Sports Illustrated jinx, where if you make the cover of SI, you’re about to tear an ACL or your team is going to get upset by a high school pickup squad. Is the jinx apocryphal? Maybe. I haven’t kept a running list. I do know that last year Showtime did a documentary on Notre Dame football and this year Notre Dame went 4-8. I’m just saying I don’t want anything that could produce bad feng shui for the UConn women because thi...

Women’s Final Four – UConn Bounced Again
Blogs.Courant.com - almost 6 years
When I heard I would be covering the UConn women’s basketball team during the post season I was excited at the prospect of them making it to the Final Four. For selfish reasons I was looking forward to hooking up with my brother Jeff who has lived in Denver for 22 years and I haven’t been able to visit him as often as I would like. We would get together every other year to do a little skiing but I haven’t strapped my boards to my feet in a couple years now. I also have former colleagues from the Hartford Courant living in Boulder and Golden and really wanted to see them as well. Sunset heading to Boulder Saturday night to meet with Michael Kodas and Carolyn Moreau for dinner. Shot with iPhone 3s using Instagram app. Inside the Pepsi Center the court awaits for  teams to compete for the national title and 30,000 fans cheering on Baylor, Stamford, Notre Dame and the University of Connecticut.
