Hoya oh Boya

March 18, 2008

The Big East was never something that I thought I’d have an interest in. You see, my undergraduate career was spent at SUNY Binghamton and we weren’t known for our sports teams. Our ice hockey team was in fact disbanded after my freshman year. Since I wasn’t very in to sports it wasn’t such a big deal. Now Georgetown is a different story. When people found out that I was going here they all wanted tickets for basketball games. Well, when my fiancé mentioned getting tickets for the tournament in NYC I was excited.


We walked in to Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. The school band was playing and fans were yelling Hoya Saxa! Pretty good so far. The game was fast paced and every basket was exciting. The problem was that every foul was disappointing. I was so looking forward to reliving my college days for a moment and the Hoyas lost. Part of the problem was the vast number of fouls. Fortunately Pitt’s player weren’t that great at shooting them. As the end neared we were only 5 points behind and then another foul. Urrggghhh, I was very sad. I do have to say that there was a lot of spirit coming from the band and those sitting behind them. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to try another game.
