This past Wednesday was Chief Illiniwek's last dance at the final home game this season for the University of Illinois men's basketball team.
The battle over the chief has been long and the best the 'Save the Chief' side can ever really manage is status quo. It does appear though that the battle is over, so we may as well enjoy the last dance.
Chief Illiniwek's Last Dance
The beginning is a montage of the history, and his actual last dance starts about the 2 minute mark.
I certainly wish I could have been there, but I'm glad I was able to enjoy it during my time as a student. Hopefully the Chief will live on in future generations just as American Pie and O'Mally's has.
