Great to be in Gainesville

Like many people, I was dragging behind a little after one of the greatest games I have been able to witness in a long time. Although I saw many citizens of our great community with a "championship" hangover, there was no end to the positive attitudes and pleasantness displayed.
I am an alum of our great university, but only a two year resident of Gainesville. I have been so very impressed with the huge celebrations for our champions in basketball and football. Grand celebrations with small incidents, some not even noteworthy, during our chants of victory.
I want to thank you Gainesville and UF students for showing the nation how to celebrate like champions and thank every one for having the greatest of attitudes and personalities after our victory. It is great to be a Florida Gator and you have shown how great a community Gainesville can be.

Dominic Draper,
