Or, like Duke, which might as well be the world. Nails will be bitten tomorrow night as the Rams take on the Blue Devils. If/when Coach Wade’s dudes win, they’ll play either Georgetown or Wisconsin. A bunch of possibilities are in front of us, says Aaron Williams.

Sugar Park!!

No, that’s not the real name. Although maybe it will be, who knows? Maybe it’ll be Rick Tatnall Park, because that dude sure has done a lot of work to make the Sugar Pad a thing. Now, the City is turning Intermediate Terminal into a beautiful place to hang.

Yep, that’s what is actually being sung when the sun begins to burst over the horizon and the animals all flock to Pride Rock. Treat it as a loud heads up that tickets to The Lion King go on sale tomorrow!

This is absolutely guaranteed to brighten your day.
