Post Championship Article Roundup

If you are like me, you are sparingly doing work today, deciding instead to dedicate your "work day" to reliving last night's victory. It is a beautiful, wonderful warm day in New York City, and I'm reading on the internet about a game we all watched on TV last night. There seem to be a billion different articles floating on the internet, most of them about the same stuff. Instead of going to each website, I'll update this list of themed articles as I come upon them. If you don't feel like enjoying the spring weather and would rather read about Louisville's domination, well, here you go.
