The Superbowl may have been the last NFL game we see in a while

The 2010-11 football season is over, wounds are still too fresh from the Super Bowl so I won’t get into that. What really has me concerned this off-season is that the NFL is on the edge of a lockout. Make no mistake, the owners are digging in, and if there is one thing millionaires and billionaires do well its worry about money.   I worry about money too, but when I feel the need to cutback, only the small convinence store down the road suffers, it does not potentially effect our national pastime. Lets take a look at the situation, and try and make some sense from the madness.

One awesome Eagle

October 21, 2010


Rocking the Peace Tree Ceremony today and took a few pictures of this here eagle. Eagles are awesome, nuff said.


The top of Percival-Allen Hall, the most confused building on campus

October 18, 2010

Is it Allen Hall? Percival Hall? Did Percival and Allen ever get married? If so wouldn’t it be Allen-Percival? Eh who cares, the Allen Hall portion is 9 floors, and I snapped some roof shots. Always fun to see the stream of death coming from Ft. Martin so clearly, looks like a freaking volcano.  Other than that enjoy the fall colors!


The railtrail on a chilly Monday

Took the day so I could get my car inspected (and be lazy). While waiting I took a quick stroll on the rail trail. It was windy and a bit cold, and the fall colors are starting to come in. The trail was empty except for an older couple in matching sweatsuits. The river was a little gloomy yet picturesque I stopped my stroll at the construction site where it seems MUB is expanding its capacity.

The U from above

I often find myself on the roof of WVU buildings doing some sort of work, and now that I have a fancy phone I can take some pics. Stay tuned, pics from the top of Engineering coming in October after the Pumpkin Drop.


WVU to play BYU at FedEx Field in 2016, how the hell are we going to fill 91k seats?

Just in from Head Coach Bill Stewart’s twitter feed, West Virginia will play BYU at Fed Ex Field in DC in 2016. Its a pretty ballsy move for both universities, playing a neutral game far away from home in a stadium that could fit the population of Monongalia County and still have empty seats.

I like the move, its better than putting another FCS or CUSA team on the docket, I’m just curious how in the world they are going to sell out that stadium. There are tons of Mormons everywhere, and WVU has a nice alumni base in the DC area, but I just don’t see filling 91k seats for the match up. We have 6 years to sell those tix, so lets get at it!


I’m ready for some Steelers, and so is my cat

September 19, 2010

Huge Mountaineer win yesterday, and a tough match up for the Steelers this afternoon. Been busy lately, haven’t forgotten about this here blog, just haven’t had the time for it. I have big plans so stay tuned.
