George Mason's Italian dance-off
If you've ever seen a better post-game dance-off between a redshirt freshman CAA guard and a balding Italian hoopster, you've lived a more complete life than I. This is George Mason's Vertrail Vaughns and the Italian version of Mike Wise, nicknamed "Ferro," going at it hard in some quaint Italian rooftop club.
I'll let Jim Larranaga explain:
On a trip like this it is always the things that are unplanned that make it special. Last night after the game our host team, Livorno, invited us to an after game dinner party at the local tennis club. Despite the fact that many of our guys did not bring a change of clothes and wanted to head back to our hotel - we felt it would have been rude to say no. So we went with the idea of excusing ourselves as soon as possible.
About 80 people, were there on the roof top of the club with tables and chairs for everyone. Before too long, music was playing and the two dozen girls who were also invited were dancing. A 35-year old guy from Livorno started dancing as well and soon enough the roof top was like a scene from "Dancing with the Stars." Vertrail Vaughans was urged, cajoled, and finally volunteered to represent. The whole team was up dancing and cheering on "V" who put on a dance performance that had everyone standing, laughing, cheering and applauding. A real night to remember. Oh yeah, the food was good, too.
