Well, there are a couple of more games to go (hopefully), but West Virginia hasn’t seen the Final Four in 51 years. We’re back.
We’re partying like it’s 1959.
I love the way this team actively identifies with the state of West Virginia and repeatedly pays honor and gives thanks to the blue-collar people of the state. That comes from Coach Huggs, the native son, who recognizes what this means to people all across the Mountain State.
I know it doesn’t interest everyone (and oddly infuriates others), but I’ve been a dyed in the wool Mountaineer fan for every second of my 33 years on earth, and this is pretty exciting for me and many other long-suffering, loyal fans.
We’re going to enjoy it!
Here’s hoping for a victory against the Devil, I mean, the Blue Devils. But win or lose, this has been a great year.
Interesting note. Joe Mazzulla has played Duke before in the NCAA’s. With good results.
OK, probably won’t interrupt my usual scintillating content (ha) for this kind of thing much more. Only on big events. Scouts honor.
