Rice gets its parade

The 2003 National Champion Rice Owls baseball team - and no, I'm not going to get tired of typing that any time soon - got a victory parade in downtown Houston yesterday along with the Calder Cup-winning Houston Aeros. What a great week this has been for Rice.

Hey, Eric, get a load of this letter to the editor:

Proud of mannerly fans

What's this? No burning buildings, no mobs, no overturned police cars? We must applaud the discipline/restraint of Rice [University] students and Houstonians as we honor the first national athletic title in the [Rice] Owls' history. This behavior is quite a contrast to other U.S. cities.

Ed Rich, Friendswood
