The resemblance between Dr. Alan Merten and David Letterman never struck me until I saw Merten’s reaction to being surprised by a group of singing employees. The outgoing president of George Mason University got a musical send-off from the staff in the Human Resources Department. They wrote new lyrics to “Moves Like Jagger,” making it “Moves Like Merten.”
GMU may be doing some moving itself. A rumor resurfaced yesterday that the Patriots are considering leaving the Colonial Athletic Association and joining the Atlantic 10 Conference. The move could give Mason a better chance of receiving an at-large bid to future NCAA tournaments.
I wonder if David Letterman still has the George Mason sweatshirt I gave him 27 years ago.
