Hey guys, figuring Friday night is two away, I thought I'd extend this invitation to all my friends on this board! Here's my Facebook invitation after the jump. Please msg. me directly if you're interested
Five years ago, I was mingling about in my EMC cubicle in Hopkinton, MA as a recent college grad, when my supervisor, Adam (a UVM alum) told me he got 2 booster seats to the #4 Syracuse vs. #13 Vermont opening round NCAA tournament game in Worcester. I drank all their Jack Daniels in their booster suite a...nd proceeded to floor level in the student section. UVM went on to pull off one of the most shocking upsets in NCAA tournament history with an OT win. I smashed my cell phone in one hand.
Now, the Tournament Selection Committee has pulled a funny joke on us all. They gave SU the #1 seed in the West, but paired them up with this distant nightmare of a program. With their star center most likely out, the Syracuse Orangemen have what could potentially be the most competitive #1 vs. #16 match-up in Tournament History. This game also features a showdown between Syracuse sensational forward Kris Joseph, and his big brother, Maurice Joseph, a Sr. for UVM.
Please join us for a late night romp at Hotel Dabs to take in the action!
