You’re far too kind 11

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God

Philippians 4:6

It’s hard to type right now. My partially-torn heart received a good jerk tonight.

The VCU Rams dropped their third game in less than a two-week span — this evening falling to the La Salle Explorers in double overtime. I am not worried about the record, but I would be lying if I told you that I am not concerned about the team morale. We will get better; I believe in our head coach, coaching staff, players … and nobody — nobody should be — is closing¬†the door on our squad’s chances of making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament come March.

Tonight I walked into the locker room and there you were, alone, with your head down. You must have been praying. Or thinking about your grandmother. I wonder what God, or she, was telling you. I stood close by and prayed, too. I could feel your aura — of pain and brokenness, of uncertainty. You weren’t your jaunty self, the combustible personality influential enough to set a forest ablaze wasn’t present.

15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.


Welcome to the Stuart C. Siegel Center, VCU’s bedlam

All eyes on Briante Weber

All eyes on Briante Weber

We are gathered here today, to celebrate one of Richmond’s finest moments, to give recognition to the worth and beauty of committed marital love and to add our best wishes to the words that shall unite #HAVOC and #NATION in marriage.

Some call it, “popping.”

That description still might serve injustice when identifying the Stuart C. Siegel Center, not after what happened this afternoon.

The building shook multiple times under the feet of the Rowdy Rams. Insurmountable amounts of energy surged back and forth from all sections. “Swag” oozed from the tubas and trombones held by the members of our infamous Peppas band. Spectators stood and cheered proudly as VCU dismantled #20 nation-ranked, Butler.

One man just wasn’t enough to stop our press.

Some pictures are worth more than a 1,000 words. You see, that’s not just a steal and a one-handed slam dunk in transition — that’s Briante Weber giving a toast.

What’s he saying?
