Archive for the ‘college towns’ tag
It’s time to kick back and watch some great upsets, sweet Cinderella stories, and cheer on your favorite team. As usual, my college team (ECU Pirates) is not going to make it to the “Big Dance” but I still enjoy watching. The only problem for me is since I no longer live in a true “college town” the atmosphere isn’t the same. When we go to a bar, the air isn’t thick with excitement and we get strange looks when we ask for hockey to be turned off so we can watch a game. It’s not like I live in Canada (just kidding eh) and hockey is on the brain, it’s just that people in my area are no longer into college sports period thanks to all the problems with the Binghamton University Men’s Basketball program. http://www.pressconnects.com/article/99999999/NEWS01/91014035?template=theme&theme=bucoach
I’m sure if I drove to Syracuse, it would be a different story because they have a #1 Seed in the tournament and they are going to showing basketball nonstop. They are happy.
So for now, until next year when I’m in Raleigh for March Madness, I will plant my butt on the couch in front of the 52’’ flat screen and enjoy being who I am in the nonjudgmental zone of my house.
