Princeton Beats Hahvahd (WARNING: This Post Has NOTHING to do with Infertility

I know that world events have been so depressing lately.....from the unrest in the Middle East to the terrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan. It is hard to find something to cheer about and for a moment forget all the troubles and suffering that confront us on a daily basis. And then something completely meaningless (in the cosmic sense) and really quite silly can lift your spirits and make you grin from ear to ear.
Last Saturday afternoon I had just such an experience as I watched the Princeton Men's Basketball team battle Hahvahd in a one-game playoff to determine which team would go to the NCAA Tournament. Princeton battled back from a half-time deficit to finally pull even in the last few minutes. The teams traded baskets and then Princeton had the ball with 2.8 seconds on the clock under the Hahvahd basket but trailing by 1 point.
Here is the YouTube video of what happened next.
For those few moments I was transfixed watching the joy of the players and fans as they swarmed onto the court.
