Help Me Feel Like A Fan Again.

When I was in college, watching my college's basketball team play brought me joy and catharsis. I really identified with the players and felt like we were "all in this together." As an adult nearly 10 years out of college, that feeling eludes me. The players look like kids! When I travel to the games the alumni section is staid and boring! If you are a fan of your college's basketball team (or really, any college b-ball team), how do you maintain the interest, and feel passionate about the game, as an adult? [more inside]

Where to watch Maryland/Houston in SF tonight?

To SF MeFites: Where's a good place to catch March Madness today? I particularly want to see the Maryland/Houston game around 6:30 tonight. 'Good' here is defined by cheap beer and the chance to occasionally hear some commentary. Proximity to BART a plus, willing to travel to Oakland.
