A Good Day in Sports

From my perspective at least.

-First, my alma mater, Michigan, rallies from a 17 point 4th quarter deficit to defeat in-state rival Michigan State, 45-37 in triple overtime. True freshman Mike Hart had his third straight 200 yard rushing game, while quarterback Chad Henne was brilliant down the stretch. Their hopes of a Big Ten title and BCS berth still alive, the Wolverines have a week off before hosting Northwestern, and then taking on Ohio State. Had Michigan lost this one, even living in North Carolina I would never have heard the end of it.

-Much less stressful was DC United's thoroughly professional 2-0 dismissal of the Metrostars. With the win, United advances to the MLS East Final with a 4-0 aggregate victory in the two-leg total goals series. United will either have to travel to Columbus or get to host New England.
