Eers Recap

Another blowout for the Mountaineers as they beat Rutgers by the score of 31-3, and the highlight of the game was Steve Slaton’s first quarter run, which was made all the more amazing when you consider how wet the field was at the time.

Well, that was the highlight of the game until two minutes left in the fourth quarter, when one of the ABC announcers said the following (and I paraphrase):

“The WVU defense has played magnificently, including Dingle and Berry.”

Which was just all sorts of awesome, because I am 37 going on 12 (and those are real players). There is a lot of football left in the season, but I have my own personal highlight.

    And UConn is busy opening six different cans of wupass to USF right now (16-0 at the half! Daaaamn.) BCS, here we come!

    I changed “handing” to “opening” and forgot to change “to” into “on,” so now I just look like an illiterate hick. Proofread, damnit, proofread!

    wow are Roddy’s Bunch gunna regret that joke of a game they played v. USF. Not only did they lose the doughnut in the loss column, USF looks to self-implode, making Dub-Vee’s loss look that much worse.

    FWIW, I’m glad to see Rutgers exposed for the pretenders that they are. UConn, however, seems to be the real deal.

    And you didn’t even mention the DB named “Boogie”.

    Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Rub it in. Some day Division I Football will return to Nebraska and my Huskers will dominate again. Hey! It could happen now the Osbourne has returned as the AD. Believe me it is dark days in the Cornhusker state. Without football their ain’t much else to do except make fun of liberals, and drink enough beer to piss a river. But hey, good times!

    Dingle & Berry were all over the field.
    They really stuck it to the Scarlet Knights.

    In our local news, NC State upsets #21 Virginia. Not in the same league as real upsets this season, but for what it’s worth. . .

    I may not get answer to this question in this thread, but one way or another I will get an answer: why is Coors the “banquet beer”?

    Because “weasel piss” was taken already.

    West Virginia has reclaimed the Big East lead now with USuxF losing to UConn (UCONN?!?! AUUUUUGGGHHH). Well, now WV has to beat UConn to secure the title pretty much.

    Thank God Louisville sucks this year.

    Speaking of UConn…the locals refer to the basketball arena as the Conndome. Get it?

    ‘Kay–it’s no Dingle-Berry joke.

    Uh…this may be slightly before your time, John, but in a Rose Bowl game several decades ago the announcer’s were gushing over the passing combination of Morehead-to-Mandich (pronounced “Man-ditch”). I thought it rather amusing, although not as much as the time I was watching a game involving the Washington Redskins where the a particular receiver was having an incredible game (and I can’t remember who or what team now), and the TV announcer went, “_ _ makes another incredible catch – even though he was covered by four ‘Skins.”

    Well, just let the imagery work it’s way, ya’ know.

    I swear, I’m not making either of these stories up.
