Woman Delay Lung Surgery

People tend to get passionate about their teams.

I didn’t know that a first round Memphis NCAA Tournament game would be worth delaying surgery in the ER though. Thanks to Geoff Calkins, we have been alerted to this woman who put off getting surgery on a collapsed lung in the ER so she could finish watching the Memphis game.

At least Memphis won 71-66 for her. Fan really is short for fanatic.
