Homecoming in Morgantown

It is homecoming weekend in Morgantown, West Virginia.  I remember the homecoming parades and big football games when I spent three years in Morgantown in the early 80’s.  I remember the floats and the celebrations and the Pride of WV marching down the street.  This year’s homecoming opponent is Syracuse and you can see the… Continue reading Homecoming in Morgantown

The Long Bus Ride Home

I typed up this blog entry yesterday before heading out for Mass but imagine!  My luck with computers and it is off in cyberspace somewhere but not on my blog.

March Madness – For Real

I am not sure if I am referring to the suddenly, totally white ground outside or the NCAA college basketball tournament.  Actually, I live in upstate NY.  I know I am referring to the tournament. I was excited as I drove home from the CHA Tournament last weekend and listened to the NCAA tournament selection… Continue reading March Madness – For Real

The Out of WV Mountaineer Fan

I am, in case you haven’t surmised it yet, a WVU Mountaineer through and through.  I spent three years in Morgantown on the main and Evansdale campuses and love my college sports.  It doesn’t matter if the Mountaineers are winning or losing – although I admit, I prefer when they win – I watch and… Continue reading The Out of WV Mountaineer Fan
