It's our last installment of Samsung's Enhance Your Experience series. Samsung, it's in the game. Samsung, I'm lovin' it. Samsung, just do it. Samsung, the most interesting man in the world.
My favorite part of technology that doesn't involve easy access to naughty videos is the ability to follow the intricacies of Georgetown basketball from my cozy laptop in New York. On a daily basis, I get to argue with Syracuse delinquents about the merits of our rivalry. I get to throw insults around like "you suck" and "Georgetown is better" and other awesome stuff.
After The Jump, I shamelessly promote our gamethreads.
My laptop allows me to feel like I am at Georgetown games even when I am 250 miles away from Washington, DC. People like myself get to go to one or two games a year, and a nice substitute for feeling like we are in the arena is going online and "watching" the games with other Hoya fans in the same boat. Obviously, during big weekend games, going to bars like Village Pourhouse is a great substitute. But for games in the middle of the work week, the gamethread is about as good as it gets.
There were times last year that I found myself as excited about different comments as I was about the actual game. The excitement of our furious rallies against UConn and Syracuse were plenty awesome just watching on TV. Being able to scream and shout in the gamethread adds another layer.
I'm looking forward to the ODU gamethread tonight, especially because there will be no live coverage in the New York area. I'm excited to get a ton of comments from people in the arena, at different bars, and in the comfort of their homes as we begin the 2010-2011 season.
Basically, what I am saying is JOIN OUR GAMETHREAD TONIGHT OR YOU AREN'T A REAL GEORGETOWN FAN.
