Good Monday morning V5ers! We hope you guys had a great weekend. Let's get you to the five links to get you through your morning.
1. Congrats to Dominique Jones, who became the first USF player to win an NBA championship. The Dallas Mavericks did most everyone a favor by beating the Miami Heat in six games with their 105-95 win last night. Head over to Mavs Moneyball to celebrate.
2. Also congratulations to All-American David Aristil, who finished fourth in the 400-meter hurdles at the NCAA Track & Field Championships. David had a personal best 49.94 in the final, and qualified for the US Track & Field Championships with his effort. Also, congrats to pole vaulter Stephanie Duffy, who earned second team All-American honors after finishing tied for 15th in the finals.
This officially ends the 2010-11 USF athletic year, and we'll have some awards to hand out later this week to celebrate the best and... not so best moments of the last nine months.
3. Former USF and current FC Tampa Bay GK Jeff Attinella had the experience of a lifetime when he trained with the US Men's National Soccer Team. For a guy like Jeff to train with Tim Howard and Marcus Hahnemann, and pick their brains about goalkeeping at the highest level, will only make him better. The USMNT were in town for the Gold Cup, where they fell to Panama 2-1. #Klinsmann2014
4. Greg Auman was a transcribing fool on Friday, as he was able to listen to Skip Holtz on the Dan Sileo show at 8 AM. Less than an hour later, Greg turned the dial to 1010 CBS Sports Radio and listened to Stan Heath talk with Mike Pepper, Jim Lighthall, and the gang.
5. Welp, Shambolic suffered the same fate as USF did against Marquette in Anonymous Eagle's adjective contest. Drunken Hobbit Jim Burr just doesn't sound the same.
