I wrote this post on my biog earlier today and thought the Casual Hoya devotees would enjoy. Here is the link to the original post. The text and images are also posted below. http://bit.ly/AgwWNU
Since graduating from Georgetown and moving away from DC I’ve found myself watching many more Hoya hoops games on TV. And over the last season of televised games it has become painfully clear that basketball announcers love to latch onto a handful of "compelling anecdotes" and beat the absolute s**t out of them. (Oh really, Henry Sims has improved a lot this year? No effing way!)
So a couple weeks ago I started taking mental notes of the stuff that announcers ALWAYS seem to be saying during this season’s Hoyas games. If I were cooler and could do a better Bill Raftery/Doris Burke impression I probably would have made a "S**t Georgetown Basketball Announcers Say" YouTube video, but I’m not, so I decided to kill an hour at work today and make the S**t Georgetown Basketball Announcers Say Bingo board instead.
If you catch any of Georgetown’s Big East or NCAA Tournament games on TV over the next few weeks print this bad boy out and start playing. Chances are you’ll black the board out before half time. (And if you turn it into a drinking game and do a shot every time one of these phrases or topics is mentioned you’ll probably black out too—so I don’t recommend it).
