Go Hokie...Basketball?!

I never really followed college basketball. Perhaps occasionally participating in sweet sixteen bracket polls, but without any clue of who is good or bad. Just randomly advancing one team or another based on rankings. I, unlike J (and most men, I think) need an emotional investment to enjoy watching sports. I need to want someone to win. So if a team I love isn't playing, or if they are not directly effected by the outcome (or if I don't have money riding on it) I don't watch. That's why college basketball has never made it onto my TV schedule. I could really give a crap about basketball dynasties the likes of Duke and UNC. That is, unless...

The Hokies are kicking their asses!

Um, wha?


Ok, looks like I'll have to bone up on some hoops knowledge. And tonight they play FSU! And I HATE me some Seminoles! God, with their lame tomahawk chop accompanied by what can only be described as the most annoying chant/song thingy in college sports? Emotional investment? Check! Yay, my winter Hokie drought may just be over. And I need a little Hokie love after...well, you know.

You took the words right out of my mouth!

Of course, that was after the "Tech has a basketball team!?" Who knew!

Maybe this will divert some attention away from M. Vick. WTH? A water bottle with a secret compartment for weed? I just figure these guys have dealers in every city.

There ya go! I'm kinda holding my breath now that people are paying attention, because I want these guys to do well too... not just because they're Hokies, but also cause I like Seth Greenberg, and the team went through so much stuff last year.
