I’m going to a pretty solid slate of games this year

Being in DC really affords me the opportunity to attend a lotttt of really great games. Do you know how many cities/schools are within about 4 hours driving distance from here?? Raleigh-Durham, Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, New York, Morgantown, pretty much off of Virginia (Richmond, Charlottesville, and Blacksburg). SO many! Granted, I don’t have car, so this isn’t terribly convenient, but theoretically. Or if I rent a car (because I can now because I’m old).

Anyway, I already have tickets to:

  • 11/30 - Tennessee @ Georgetown (Big East SEC Challenge)
  • 12/8 - Northern Iowa @ George Mason (Going by myself, because I’m cool.)
  • 12/19 - Cornell @ Duke (IN the student section!! With the Cameron Crazies!)
  • 3/9 - Syracuse @ Georgetown (!!!)

I would’ve pretty much sold my soul to go to Wichita State @ VCU, but a 7:30 game 2 hours away on a Tuesday night with no car wasn’t really feasible.

I’m thinking of going to Maryland vs. George Mason on Sunday. There’s a LivingSocial deal for $12. Meh.

There are tonnns of other games I would go to, but I think I’m definitely going to have to go to Butler @ VCU on 3/2. I won’t forgive myself if I don’t make it to a VCU game sometime this season! I am also salivating over Duke @ Maryland on 2/16, but tickets are priii-cey.

Notre Dame’s RTC tonight — was it appropriate? Granted, Kentucky is the defending champs, ranked in the top 10, and the Irish are unranked… but ND has lost only one home game in over two years and Mike Brey’s team was in fact a Las Vegas favorite. Tough call on this one… what do you say?

Exactly agree. I didn’t realize they were the Vegas favorite until after the game, but you were a fool if you didn’t think they were going to win that game. Like Mike Brey said after the game though, that court storm was probably a little pent up celebration for football. Students hadn’t really had a chance to celebrate together on campus yet, did they?

If I ever go to Maui, I swear one of the first things I do is get a Chaminade Basketball tshirt.

I love VCU so so much

I think I’m really uncomfortable with the feelings this blog is giving me.
