November 26 (Wednesday, Day 72, Cancun, Mexico, Continued) -

A post almost but not quite exclusively dedicated to South Dakota State University women's basketball:

A bigger fan than Filbert--he brought the banner!

Tip-off, SDSU vs. #10-rated Maryland

Hey, what's the radio guy looking at on his laptop?

It's Filbert's other web site, sdsufans.com!

Ribs and chicken nuggets--yum!

We enjoyed some quiet time in the room before heading out for dinner. We drove to downtown Cancun and each ordered the mixed taco combo platter (5 tacos, beans and guacamole) at El Poblano for $6.15 each. We were the only gringos there. Filbert ordered a beer and was surprised when two were delivered and assumed something was lost in the translation since the waitress spoke very little English but he didnít have any problem drinking them. We later learned that it was happy hour and two-for-one so that was an even better deal.
