King of the Hill[top]

With Georgetown's first Final Four appearance in 20 years tomorrow the media has been awash with stories about all of Georgetown's personnel. How many Pat Ewing, John Thompson, Jonathan Wallace, Roy Hibbert, Jeff Green, and Jeremiah Rivers stories have we seen this past week? A lot. But it wasn't until this morning that we finally got the scoop on the personality that is most responsible for the Hoyas resurgence.

"He is like a demigod on campus," junior Chris Seneca said...."He's got this prima donna thing," Seneca said. "That's what happens when you spend you whole life listening to people say they love you."...

At the arena, he seems to soak in the energy from the crowd....At halftime, he wanders through the concourse, greeting fans and accepting requests for photographs.

Of course, we're talking about Jack. For the entire profile on the Hilltop's most powerful mammal, check out the rest of Susan Kinzie's article from The Washington Post, "Hoyas' Mascot Laps Up The Love."
