For the second week in a row I am not at Mountaineer Field. It sucks donkey dicks but I will be at a bar in SC with other Mountaineer fans.
Pat White is out and JB gets the start. We shall see what happens. Let’s GOOOOOOOO Mountaineers!!
So there’s a vicious rumor going around town that there’s a game tomorrow.
I didn’t want to believe it. As far as I’m concerned, it’s still baseball season. Or women’s soccer season. To be honest with you, I’m still satisfied with my lingering Olympics high. That synchronized diving really did it for me. I felt that sport in my naughty place(s).
But, either way, I am in Morgantown. If there’s a football game tomorrow, so be it.
At this very moment I am at work but will be leaving Charleston in a few hours to head up to the promised land. Yes, I’m headed to Morgantown. Around 3:30 or 4:00 I will be en route to the Coliseum where I hope to find a ticket to see our Mountaineers face-off against the #9 Thugtown Hoyas.
The students will get the place rocking tonight so get ready for some excitement. Wish me luck…
Heart Prediction: WVU 64 – Georgtown 63…Alexandar hits a turnaround jumper over Hibbert
Head Prediction: WVU 62 – Georgetown 74
UPDATE: I NOW HAVE TICKETS…YAHTZEE!!
This will be the second consecutive WVU sporting event we have watched at the utterly implodable Charleston Civic Center. (If you’re wondering, it’s the giant piece of crap in the picture above.) Last Saturday’s Oklahoma game didn’t end too well, so let’s try and stop the losing streak at one.
If you need me, I’ll be at the $12 tailgate buffet and, more specifically, the cash bar. Nothing says fun quite like a cash bar (actually, an open bar does, but hey, they probably knew I was coming). Luckily, they have projection and flat screen televisions, and all the sports bars around Charleston suck, and I like to watch the game with other people, and yelling expletives at the top of your lungs just doesn’t have the same effect if children aren’t around, and did I mention there’s liquor?
So that’s what we’re doing. The nervousness is just setting in. Actually, the coaching search did it’s job in properly distracting me until today. I imagine, though, that it’s going to get pretty crazy between now and gametime, what with my nervous drinking habit and all.
If it gets too crazy, just remember: the safe word is “bubble-screen.
For my lazy ass, it’s nice to be able to roll out of bed and watch the Mountaineers in person. Actually, roll out of bed, drink myself silly, and THEN watch the Mountaineers in person. It’s all about the details.
We’re 7.5 point favorites tonight, but Oklahoma has a huge front line. If we cover that spread and look good doing it, the Big East schedule is going to look a lot more manageable. If we don’t, things are going to get a lot tougher. Personally, I think we win by 8.
See you at the Civic Center.
