In Boeheim We Trust (Part 2)

Be like T-Swizzy. Rock all night long. With Syracuse Basketball. In Boeheim We Trust.

I….. LOVE basketball. Especially when coached by Jim Boeheim. He is such a stinkin’ cutie, and so intelligent. Not only is he a great person (although I’ve never met him, I have only heard wonderful things), he works wonderfully as a coach. He described this season’s team as one with “more depth” than ever before.

I would have to agree. With the depth of the players, the depth in fan support has dramatically increased. Each player has made a name and image for themselves, each having their own virtues, talents, and wonderfully unique abilities. I love watching them play, and I love cheering for them even more.

Just a typical Syracuse fan.

Today’s game — I have to admit, I got a bit worried. Marquette brought through a powerful defensive force, and were quite good at gaining possession. Our team was faltering at Marquette’s speed and agility, often getting caught up in the pace of it all and missing some beautiful three-pointers.

Each time, however, the boys were able to bring back their lead with a powerful return and spunk. Boeheim kept them steady when they were buckling under pressure, and gave them the perfect balance of fatherly coaching and no-bullshit attitude. We came away with a win, and myself, with a lost voice. The sign of an always-good game.

World’s most precious child fan.

Otto is so stinkin’ cute.

He even high-fives.

Padre had a wonderful time, and I was so happy to see him happy. He told me one of the things he wanted to do this year was go to an SU basketball game with me, and now that he’s accomplished that goal, he is looking forward to going to another one. Happy camper. I love spending time with my family, and now that it’s time to go back to school, I’ve actually gotten used to being home. As always, I will miss my parents when I go back home, but this time I’ll miss them even more.

I’m exhausted and have decided it’s time for chocolate-chipped cereal and bed. I’m exhausted, and I’m pretty sure Lilly would agree.

Have a great rest of your night, friends! I’m finishing a Meryl Streep marathon with the fam (Lilly included), and it is totally worth the extra exhaustion. #Priorities

xoxo,
Katelyn

I looove Jimbo! My grandma taught him how to type! Yes, I tell that to everyone as my claim to Syracuse basketball fame…

Yesterday was a perfect example of how much that depth is helping this year! Finally, we can afford to trip up a little here and there during the game, and still come fighting back for a win. Feels good to us as fans, and I’m sure even more so for the players! BTW… check out this article, if you haven’t yet – it’ll give you the chills: http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/story/16723732/who-could-give-syracuses-starting-five-a-tough-game-its-second-five

PS – I saw that little girl at the Seton Hall game last week – she is so cute!
