Hoodoo Hoodoo Orange Voodoo

The officially-licensed Orange Voodoo t-shirt is here!  And it's in this season's hottest color so if you get one, not only will you be rocking an awesome t-shirt, you'll also be en vogue.  Shoot me an email at if you want in on this (and you know you do) and we'll work out the details.

Huggy Bear

Ohh I generally loathe everything about you...your slicked hair, your track suit, and the fact that you coach West Virgina (pronounced ver-jyna).  But as I was drinking the green detox juice my co-worker so nicely made for me this morning and reading my morning news, my face went from a puckered yucky baby face, downturned mouth edges and all (apparently today's batch of green juice is a little bitter thanks to juicy lemons), to a pleasant smile, with even a chuckle as I read:

"I haven't watched Syracuse yet, for obvious reasons," Huggins said on Thursday's Big East conference call according to Adam Zagoria. "I have a hard enough time sleeping as it is." said Huggins.

That's right should have a hard time sleeping.  Not only because you probably have some sort of sleep apnea, but because you're coming to the Dome in a couple weeks.  Sleep tight Bob and know that Dion is dreaming of lighting up your team to show he's not the player you saw last year and Fab Melo is ready to block the sh!t out of you guys.

You got one right Huggy..and for that I promise not to hate on you for the rest of the day.  You're welcome.

SU v. Marquette Wrap Up

Now, I know I've been MIA so far this season.  And I want you to know that I've chided myself daily for it.  So, moving on....

I'm still working on figuring out what it was I was witness to.  Was I nervous?  Sure...and I am seriously skeptical of anyone who says they weren't.  Hind sight is twenty twenty, but when Marquette was only down by three, I'm pretty sure just about everyone was thinking "oh shit."  We aren't fact, I will guarantee we will lose this season.  The only question is what team will have the dubious honor of taking us down...

Last night wasn't entirely Syracuse's fault....the refereeing was terrible.  But who is really surprised by that...Cahill, Higgins and Syracuse on the same court does not spell good times for Cuse.  As for John Gaffney, I don't know who he is, but I hate him.  Go back to reffing Hofstra games and get out of my conference.

Public Enemy #4 - John Gaffney
At the end of the first half while everyone around me was cheering and hooting, I was staring and the score and refreshing my espn feed to check the stats.  Refresh complete and my heart sinks.  Cuse's stats were thru the roof while Marquette's were in the serious dumps.  To mean that meant that odds that Marquette was going to heat up in the second half and we were going to cool down were a practical certainty.  Eventually, the stats would even themselves out with each team shooting something close to a normal percentage.  And even out it did.

Despite the series of myocardial infarctions experienced from 4 to 6:30 pm yesterday, Cuse showed us they are tough.  Despite essentially no productivity from KJo or Scoop, we still wasn't pretty and it wasn't easy, but we won.

P.S.  Seton Hall is second in the Big East conference?!?!?  Did I really just type that??  I assure you it's true.  Maybe the world really is ending this year.  Happy trails.

SU v. Seton Hall

Let the Big East season begin!!  Well technically it began yesterday with Notre Lame and Pitt, but whatevs.

So last year, when we were ranked 10th, Seton Hall rolled into the Dome and embarrassed us 90-68.  It was a bad, bad day.  Here's to hoping we make a better showing this year and hold on to our #1 status until we play a team I won't be embarrassed to say we lost to.

And for those who might read this on a semi-regular basis, we are going to add in a couple of new regular items since Matt is lacking in musings as of late. 
I think he's being more careful about what he says, which is probably good for him, but far less amusing for the rest of the world.  Poo on having a filter.

New things for the new season:

1.  Pure - The jackass, I will call him JA, who sits behind us at the games says in staccato fashion "pure" when the team takes a shot.  It's not every shot, but he says it enough that we've taken note.  Occasionally his father will join the stupidity and say it too.  The best part about it is that he (and his dad) are about 1 for 20 on the season as far as we have counted and the 1 was a free throw.

2.  JA quotes - He usually says something that's incredibly stupid or wildly inappropriate or both.  I will keep you posted.  In fact, I may post a video of him just so you can all experience the JA Show.

3.  Dome Cam Stats - We've noticed that the Dome cams (the Pepsi Fan Cam, Yancy's Fancy Say Cheese Cam, and Kiss Cam) only show white people. This includes groups of people.  Yes, I'm saying the Dome cams are racist.

We're #1.....

By a mile too.  I think whoever voted for UNC must've put on their funny pants today....hilarious waste of your vote.

BUT...this #1 may be just as short-lived as it was last time....

Apparently, Manny's does not follow my blog.  Shame on you Manny's for not paying attention to me.  Shame on you Manny's for being lame enough to think a t-shirt saying We're #1 is acceptable.  But mostly, shame on you Manny's for jinxing our team.  As if I wasn't nervous enough about Saturday, you go and do a thing like this.  If I didn't know better, I'd think Manny's was owned by Georgetown fans.

Could it be???  With Kentucky and Ohio State losing...that leaves us to claim the number one spot in the country right?  Remember the last time we were number #1??  And we made tshirts about it???  And then we lost our next game to Louisville at Louisville at the last game at Freedom Hall and we weren't #1 anymore???  Well, if the ranking gods are so kind...let's not make a shirt about it.  Act like you've been there before people.

Congrats on the win Cuse...well done!!

Clean Up, Clean Up, Everybody, Everywhere....

Last week, as I was watching the Donald the Duck do push ups in what looked to be a mostly-pristine white mascot outfit, I said..."he's clean...why can't Otto be clean? I would donate to a fund to get a new Otto."  Apparently, someone at SU heard me.

So my fellow Orange Fans, at this time of year when there are so many good causes requesting your assistance....starving families...children with cancer who need toys....please consider donating to the Clean Otto Fund.  Now, we're happy to get the kind of money that jingles, but we'd rather have the kind that folds.

I will be submitting my check to the fund today because I am tired of seeing nasty Otto out and about and have actually avoided having my picture taken with him/her for fear there might be something contagious lurking on that grimy fuzz.

On another note...VA Tech (say it with me. VAH Tech).  Cuse's first real challenge.  Can the bench keep up their incredible stats? or will the starters finally show why they are starters?  I'm hoping the boys can take down those castrated turkeys (stop denying it VA Tech fans) just in time for Thanksgiving, but I'm, as always, cautiously optimistic.  Cuse being ranked so highly has never boded well for the team.

Either way, eat, drink, and be merry this Thanksgiving season!  And in case you were interested in a refresher about the history of Thanksgiving, a co-worker sent this video to me and I found it to be rather entertaining.  Nothing obscene, I promise.
