Jayne Appel tweets from Sacramento
“FINAL FOUR. Time to get me some cowboy boots!” JAYNE APPEL tweeted Monday night after her Cardinal women’s basketball team pulled out a win in the final second of the Elite Eight game against Xavier in Sacramento. The team will soon head to San Antonio for the Final Four. Another of Appel’s tweets made the news on game day when the Sacramento Bee blog “Capitol Alert” linked to her Twitter site, on which she quoted the Stanford Band: “Were gonna go play in front of the state capital – see how long it takes them to recognize us.” Not sure if the band actually played in front of the capitol, but it gave the team a spirited send-off at the hotel. You can watch it on YouTube. There’s also video of JEANETTE POHLEN’S game-winning play.
