It's regional tournament time in basketball, and I've spent the last couple of days at Jacksonville State, site for the Northeast Regionals. My favorite part of the games is the fans, students who are allowed to skip school and roadtrip. And boy, oh boy, do they get fired up for the games. Painted faces and chests, weird clothes and hats, they go all out to cheer on their schools. And sometimes things get out of hand. At Troy State yesterday, 4 female fans were arrested after getting into a fight after the game. "Be True To Your School", sang the Beach Boys. Just don't get locked up in the pokey for it.
