View 275: Paint the Town Orange

With the Syracuse University Men’s Basketball team in Atlanta, Georgia for the NCAA Final Four Championship, upstate New York busted out in the team’s colors of orange and blue all last week. Onondaga County even lit up some of the City of Syracuse’s landmark buildings in orange.  I waited for Blue Hour to add the complimentary blue.

The Everson Museum of Art had its modern block building lighted on one side in orange which fit perfectly with the deep blue of the twilight sky.

Across the street from the Everson Museum, the OnCenter War Memorial where I have been spending a lot of time covering the Syracuse Crunch the past few months, was lighted in orange.  It looked good.

I am writing this after the SU Basketball team lost in the semi-final game to Michigan. I think there are a few fans who might like to put the referees in front of a judge inside the orange lighted Onondaga County Courthouse on Columbus Circle in Syracuse, New York. Not that anyone is bitter or anything. 🙂

Though the fans of the SU basketball team did not get to paint the town orange, it was a great gesture for the Onondaga County to actually do it and add to the excitement of the week.
