Kudos To Malloy, Hartford for A Quick UConn Parade

by Categorized: Media, Politics Date:

When a UConn basketball team wins a national championship, a parade doesn’t usually happen until the second weekend after the Final Four, at the earliest.  I’ve been critical of that when it happens — other cities can organize it in hours or days, why can’t we?

So now it’s time for kudos to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and the Hartford Business Improvement District for making it happen this Sunday in the Capital City to celebrate the Huskies’ national championship.  Read details here in Thursday’s timely announcement.

No arguments about who’s paying, no squabbles about overtime, no finger-pointing about who dropped the ball.  Just a parade, or as Coach Geno Auriemma said in Paul Doyle’s story, “We didn’t just win … we gave a whole bunch of people a reason to have a party.”

Come on down, the weather looks great. 

And with an all-Connecticut final in the college hockey Frozen Four on Saturday, let’s have another parade next week — in Hamden or New Haven.

  1. Connecticut is Dying Too

    It’s bread and circuses for all. Rome burns and Governor NeroMalloy plays the fiddle.
