Basketball Stuff and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

Now that football season is over, and the hangover has finally gone away, we can devote ourselves to basketball for the next couple months.

Do you ever wonder why I don't talk about Mountaineers in the NBA? Well, I mean besides the point that there really haven't been any Mountaineers to get a sniff of NBA interest since Dale Blaney. Blaney chose a career in racing cars instead. We should all be so lucky to have a back up like that. Sure D'or Fisher and Gordon Malone both got some sniffs. But we haven't had a whole lot of any first round drafts since I've been alive. Outside of Joe Alexander. So to show our appreciation, let's vote him into the slam dunk contest.

Joe Mazzulla doesn't seem to be any closer to getting back on the court and Truck Bryant seems to be one tough SOB.

West Virginia kicks off the Big East schedule tomorrow at 4pm against Seton Hall. I don't know what to think of the Hall. They've beaten some good teams and had some real head scratchers so far this year. You'll have that with a team that relies a lot on the three point shot. Let's hope they have an off game shooting the ball tomorrow. I have to think our defense will have something to do with that.

HEY! Go vote for Joe!!!

Update! At the request of the Coca Cola Bottling Company, the Slam Dunk Contest should be referred to as the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Because we don't want to answer to the Coca Cola Bottling Company! Ever!
