This Simply Has to Stop!

You may not give a rip about women's tennis, but, if you don't, now is the time to start.

For the first time in their program's history, Georgia Tech has advanced to the final round of the N.C.A.A. women's tennis tournament. The Yellow Jackets got there by beating the team that got there by beating Georgia.

It's time to hunker down and pull for U.C.L.A. to beat the Georgia Tech women's tennis team. (By the way, is it just me, or is the phrase "Georgia Tech women" either oxymoronic or redundant?)

Now that we finally appear to be on the verge of eliminating the Gator menace, we can't have our in-state rival winning a national title on our campus. Fortunately, U.C.L.A. should have a de facto home court advantage, since I know there are more people in Athens willing to root for U.C.L.A. than there are people in Athens willing to root for Georgia Tech.

Go 'Dawgs! . . . and, for today, at least, go Bruins!
