I think a few of my closest friends and I will be headed into New York City tomorrow to watching Syracuse play Notre Dame. I wanted to take us to a Syracuse bar or a good sports bar in general. Where do Orange fans generally congregate for a game?
I don't have enough words, so I'll add how I proud I was for the seniors yesterday to win that bowl game. I was lucky enough to have class with many of the upperclassmen (Andrew Lewis, although he was suspended, Chandler Jones, Derrell Smith, Doug Hogue, Van Chew, Nick Provo...) and they worked so hard in the classes I had with them. I took Intro to Coaching with about 25 SU athletes, and they routinely were the only ones who actually gave a damn in the class because the class was a joke. They saved our professor from crashing and burning routinely.
One class, our professor invited three special Olympic floor hockey players to play their version of floor hockey. Chandler and Van Chew took the game immediately, interacting with the three special Olympic kids. At one point, Van darted down the court, weaving his way through SU athletes from all sports to get a shot on goal against one of the S.O. kids playing goalie. The S.O. stuffed him and I'll never forget the wide smile that came on both his and the S.O. kid's face.
/Heartwarming story time over.
