[MBB] Game #9: 12/8/18 - 7PM vs Monmouth

Recommended Posts

What’s scary is is if we had whether we had won the 2 games or not in Belfast the attendance most likely would have been the same Saturday.

They are in that corner virtually every game. Benson often walks around though and stops by our section because prez Rodriquez sits in our section on the first row in the corner almost every game. I love that he attends. The last guy was a tool and never attended games...at least from what I remember.

No, Dr. Jones was there (in the same seats, must be reserved for the president.) It's where he told me he didn't know exactly where was the land that the U got for the cybersecurity building.

He's right behind announcer Bob Picozzi in this picture of the Hooley shot (the only fan in a suit)

Olean is in the middle of nowhere.  If you live there you'll be delighted to go to a game.  Like living in the North Country, every hockey game is the place to be.  

The Bonnie’s drew 5480 against UB this past Saturday. Of course SBU is A-10 and UB is MAC, undefeated, #17 and from western NY. Avg A-10 attendance is way more than America East. I know they need to raise revenue whenever possible, but charging $10 to park to watch a game for a currently losing squad in a nearly half empty building does not seem to be smart marketing. And against a team that is 0-10.

Havidan {I can call him by his first name after sitting with him last year at a Volleyball game. It was just after the hurricane in Puerto Rico and we had a nice discussion about the devastation and that he still had family there--of course I do not call him by his first name in person} and his beautiful wife walk by my seats pretty nearly every game and say hello. For you younger guys, the previous home game the Rodriquezs' had their beautiful daughters with them. I also love that they attend!

I'm sure he's attended a bunch of games but he was not at every game like Rodriguez seems to be. Jones, generally speaking, was not a pro-sports President if I recall (might not have been anti-sports though either, to be fair...more likely was 'indifferent'). He seemed to only attend the 'big ones' like BPG or select FB games when something had to be presented at midfield (honoring a veteran, senior night, etc.). I'm glad Jones is gone. Didn't like the guy.

LOL @ that pic. My phone is covering my face so I watched the moment on my screen but you know what? No ragrets (who gets the reference?)! My jumping up and down still recording and just the chaos happening on my screen always gives me the warm fuzzies lol.

I was in my old seats on the other side of the arena during that pic instead of in 200. Your shaky video always makes me smile though

Looks like Gattuso is in that pic

Yep. Too bad he didn't learn how to win in that moment....heyoooooo!

Believe it or not, it's actually possible. When the Miami Heat lost the 2011 NBA Finals to the Dallas Mavericks, Erik Spoelstra spent the summer re-inventing the Heat offense (later dubbed the "Pace and Space" offense) by meeting with the head coach of the Oregon Ducks football team (Chip Kelly).

If Spo could do it that way, why can't Losertusso steal something from Brown? lol.

Greatest sports moment ever for me (so far). Nothing beats that day. Not even the 3 NBA titles my favorite NBA team has won.

Me too.  Having nothing to do with the backstory of Peter Hooley:

Just the 2-6 start to the year with a team of mostly new players after a tournament appearance, then the team gels and runs to 15-1 in league. A championship game at home against the team that handed UA its only loss (also at home) then being behind the entire game, followed by a slow comeback. A packed arena full with people who thought they lost the game with a corner full of the opposing fans going nuts after a drive to the hoop is too strong and misses, only to have Warney tip the ball out to a 3-point shooter who drains it - for the win - making the crowd go crazy while that opposing corner goes completely silent and doesn't move from shock for at least 10 minutes? 

Yup, not sure that  moment could possibly be topped. If it could, I sure hope I am there.

He didn't have to go that far. That's Coach Abe in the orange coat on his left.
