I thought some of you might be amused by a couple of tidbits left over in the Wash. Post following Saturday's G'town matchup....
For those who have any doubt about the adage that Duke gets everybody's best shot, in the Tuesday Sports section was this highlighted quote:
"I've been going to Georgetown games since 1981 and I thought that was the most spirited crowd...I've ever seen."
-- Michael Wilbon in his online chat Monday talking about Saturday's victory over Duke
This also follows a number of player quotes saying saying, along a similar vein, that that was the most revved-up and intense the players have been all season, for ANY game. FWIW I was at the game and the crowd was VERY intense and loud throughout. Most GT fans were polite to us, with the exception of one drunken idiot seeing me and a couple other Duke fans quietly leaving the stadium afterwards, outdside, ran up and started clapping loudly right in my face (12") and shouting 'go Hoyas!!!' (My response, "Hey man, act like you've been there before..." )
Also, the Post does weekly rankings and comments of the 11 top college programs in the DC area -- GT, MD, ODU, VPI, UVA, VCU, W&M, Mason, Richmond... With GT as number one in the area there was this assessment:
"Cameras caught Duke Assistant Steve Wojciechowski mouthing the words "not true" when Clark Kellog said that the ACC was having a down year during the Hoyas-Duke game."
'made me laugh at least!
