Good catch Cappy. As I told you on my PM, I thought the PSU game was on the BTN that night. It wasn’t until I went TIVO’ing before we left for the game that I then realized that both the Ill/UGA and GW/PSU games would be on ESPNU back-to-back.
Whipped up the sign and was hoping for a few late timeouts and wallah, there I am with my crazy daughter. Funny thing is, she was embarrassed by the whole sign thing, but the next morning when I showed her, she was bragging about being on TV to her brother and anyone else within an earshot.
My only regret is I should have snuck “PennStateHoops.com” on the sign. Oh well, next time :).
Entertaining game…Unfortunately it’s a bad loss for the Illini, though Georgia played their best game of the year by far. Another funny…when McCamey took the last second shot for the tie, in the back of my mind I was thinking that if he makes this, then all my Penn State peeps are going to miss the first part of the PSU game. So part of me was relieved when he missed. Though I had to deal with an unhappy wife. BTW the crowd was easily 60/40 in favor of the Illini. The I-L-L, I-N-I chants were by far the loudest of the night and orange was certainly the color of choice over red. I guess that probably says more about the state of the Georgia hoops program than anything, but I was very impressed with the Illini showing in the stands.
