Between March Madness and all of the Saint Patrick’s Day festivities, how could we expect anybody to keep up with the news? So while you recover from this the double whammy of a Guinness hangover and this afternoon’s devastating tournament loss, catch up on what you missed this weekend.
- George Clooney came to town this weekend, and was arrested on Friday while protesting at the Sudanese Embassy. After paying a $100 fine, Clooney was released after a few hours in custody. And for the best —it would be a shame for America’s most handsome man to be locked up for long.
- The iPad 3 debuted this weekend, and the line outside of Georgetown’s Apple store was a mix of eager tech fans and protestors calling for improved workers’ rights at the factory in China that produces the technology.
- With a heartbreaking 66-63 loss to North Carolina State, the Hoyas are now out of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament. If you’re having a tough time dealing with it, our friends over at Paranoia tried to find the silver lining in the situation.
- In happier news, our fifth-seeded women’s basketball team beat Fresno state 61-56 in their tournament opener, and will advance to the second round.
