Sheehan ’12: Taking a Wiz (-ards franchise) to the playoffs

The other day, I saw an advertisement for “The Social Network,” a best picture nominee. In case you missed it, the movie is about this guy named Mark Zuckerberg who made a website that allowed people you’ve never met to look at pictures of you and invite you to slam poetry readings.
