Over the past week, I've asked the members of the message board community at HoyaSaxa.com to vote for their favorite Georgetown-Syracuse games of all-time.

On the occasion of the one-year anniversary of the game, I wrote an article for HoyaSaxa.com recounting my experiences that day. You can read it here: http://www.hoyasaxa.com/sports/backpage/hawkes_12107.htm
We jokingly called ourselves "Team Moderate Temperature" because of the mild weather that night (a previous group of campers for the 2004 Duke game was nicknamed "Team Ice Cold"). As I type this, the temperature on my balcony across the river from
