There is no finer example of the greatness of athletics and triumph of the human will than Seton Hall vs. Rutgers. On February 23rd, 2010, you will once again feel the power, the grace and the sheer magnitude of this cataclysmic event.
The only question is...will you be there? (Pat Forde will!) Apologies are in order to the Louisville, Georgetown, Syracuse and Providence basketball teams...I'm not entirely sure why the Big East would schedule them to play on that day as well OR why the ESPN family of networks would choose Louisville-Georgetown over the Seton Hall-Rutgers game to televise, but I'm sure that will be changed soon.
Do me a favor and pick your jaw up off the ground for a second. I have something else to tell you.
SETON HALL AND RUTGERS WILL PLAY EACH OTHER A SECOND TIME THIS SEASON!!!!!!!!!
The Pirates and Knights will do battle on Tuesday, March 4th and this time it will actually be televised nationally! Possibly on ESPN! More likely on ESPN2! Pat Forde...swim freely in the warm bath of vindication.
I, for one, can hardly wait for the greatness to begin.
