Toledo Tough: Week in Review & Preview

Thurs, Feb. 20 @ Bowling Green 60-58

The Bowling Green game was televised on ESPNU at 9:00pm! Did you catch the game? If you did, you may have caught me after the game cheering ecstatically with Rebekkah Bennet, haha. It has been reported that we were both quite comical with our jubilant celebrations! She is observed fist pumping, and I am jumping up and down like a cheerleader - arms in a wide V, screaming! Wow, what a game is all I can say! It is probably a good thing that I am in overall good health, if not I would have had a heart attack, Jesus! 

I am also glad we won because it was Race's birthday, eldest son to Coach Kowalczyk. He made a sign, and it was on TV!
