#ThrowbackThursday 1985 Villanova Champions

Still celebrating Villanova’s win in this year’s NCAA basketball championship. We’ve been waiting for 31 years since that Perfect Game to see the Best Championship Game Ever!

So this Throwback Thursday I’m sharing a commemorative collage I made to celebrate the 1985 Villanova Championship win. I’m already gathering newspapers and magazines to make a collage for this year!

Why so excited? Well, besides it being my alma mater, it just goes to show what teamwork and heart can do. Villanova is not a big school compared to North Carolina or some of the others. The guys on the team are not top NBA prospects, but they gave it their all and played like there was no tomorrow.

Who doesn’t love an underdog?

#ManCandyMonday Villanova Basketball Coach Jay Wright

Humor me this Monday morning. Today’s choice is fashion plate and Villanova Basketball coach Jay Wright. This man, unlike Rollie Massimino (1985 National Champs!), is always perfectly put together. So much so that he’s been a multiple winner of GQ’s Fashionable Four of best dressed college coaches.

And despite disappointments in the last few years where Villanova was eliminated in the early rounds, this year Jay has led my alma mater to tonight’s NCAA Basketball championship game. WOO HOO! Let’s hope I’ll be able to celebrate tonight!
