Elite 8 Sunday Open Thread: We Are All Gonzaga

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Gonna be a Long Walk Home for two of Duke, Gonzaga, Louisville or Michigan State today.  I mean, they'll fly home, but whatever.  Here is a version of one of Bruce's woefully underplayed songs, "Long Walk Home" off of the "Magic" album.

"In that particular song a guy comes back to his town and recognizes nothing and is recognized by nothing," Springsteen told The New York Times' A. O. Scott. "The singer in 'Long Walk Home,' that's his experience. His world has changed. The things that he thought he knew, the people who he thought he knew, whose ideals he had something in common with, are like strangers. The world that he knew feels totally alien. I think that's what's happened in this country in the past six years."

East Region, Syracuse
2:20 p.m.: No. 4 Louisville vs. No. 7 Michigan State, CBS / Announcers: Verne Lundquist, Jim Spanarkel, Allie LaForce
