Three Things I Did Not Recognize Today…

1. Peering out the window, I saw a mass of white stuff flowing towards the ground. Weather people call that a flurry, and one hour later Ukrops was out of milk.

2. The Drexel Dragons. Yes, they held on to defeat Penn this morning. But who was that team? I didn’t see one offensive set where they ran Phil Goss through the baseline and off a high ball screen. It was an actual offense where Jamie Harris and Gerlad Colds were patient. They didn’t overwhelm themselves against a zone. And this guy Sammie Givens looked legit. Drexel was bigger and more athletic than Penn and it’s tough to gauge, but they didn’t look like a 12th place team.

3. The new George Mason mascot. All I can say is that the thing looks like a scientific experiment gone bad. Gunston was for years the wrold’s biggest muppet, but this new creation looks like a combination of the Kool Aid man meets Bob Goulet meets Braveheart meets Mr. Bentley from the Jeffersons.

  1. sweet fancy moses. who greenlighted that thing? pun only partially intended. makes w&m’s misshapen blob look almost dignified. almost.

  2. What cracks me up is that you know there were committees, studies, memos, etc. to get to something my 11-year old daughter could’ve created between the time she gets home from school and dinner. This includes doing her homework.

  3. Your description is quite accurate. LOVE the Mr. Bentley reference.

    Hmmm…could Drexel vs. Mason on 12/6 be an interesting early season CAA match-up?
