I wish I'd thought to track down Henry Sims at last night's Georgetown-UConn game. I certainly would have had to ask him about this.

The player who actually prompted Kemba Walker to give us one of the more memorable highlights of the college basketball season is running for vice president of the Georgetown student body. His partner, Jed Feiman, is the alpha of the pair, leading the charge toward presidency. The junior Georgetown center and Feiman first made their candidacy public one week ago today.

The two's campaign page could use a bit of work, but they're full of gusto in other areas. By the way, Sims, who needs to boost his Twitter following well above 1,000 if he's hoping to have any kind of social media traction, averages 2.4 points and 18 minutes per game.

Speaking of social media, that's the theme to the duo's latest campaign push. With the Golden Globes seeing "The Social Network" win four awards, including best picture, the two stayed current (Oscars are just around the corner!) and decided to parody the movie's opening and closing scenes. The two also sample The Beatles' "Baby You're a Rich Man," which is exactly what plays out as the final scene of "The Social Network" goes to credits.  It's all so meta.

What's a Hoya? A student-body vice presidential candidate, apparently.
