The George Washington basketball team is going on an offseason goodwill tour to Italy next week, where the Colonials will play five games in 12 days, including two on military bases. You never know when the Colonials might be asked to sing their Buff and Blue fight song in the native tongue, so in preparation, the team learned the song in Italian, went to the Italian Embassy on Wednesday night, and busted loose.

If Georgetown had learned how to sing songs in Chinese, maybe that brawl never would have happened.
