To Judge or Not to Judge...

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks
There has been a lot of talk about judging people in our office today.  While some of my co-workers have made it known that they never judge people and wouldn't fathom doing so, I'll be the first to admit that I judge a lot of things...all day...

Farewell Will

Today was a big day in the athletic department.  It was a Georgetown legend's going away party as we said farewell to Will Hill.

Men's Hoop, Women's Hoop, FPD

I'm a bit late to the party here, maybe it's still a leftover feeling from waking up a bit later than normal, or later than I had expected to.  It also didn't help that the wireless was down at Verizon Center for the better part of pregame this morning.  Thankfully, Gordon Armstrong, who oversees the IT department at The Phonebooth, was able to take care of things and get the internet access back up courtside just as the game started.

Georgetown - Pitt Game Moved to ESPN

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
That first day back to school, or in this case, work, is always a struggle, but I perked up a bit this morning when I received an e-mail from ESPN about next week's game against Pittsburgh.

The game was originally slated to air on ESPN2, but has been moved to the main network channel (that would be ESPN), with Dave Pasch and legendary coach Bob Knight set to call the game.  It should be a great atmosphere at The Phonebooth that night as students are back in town for the first day.

The Hoyas are back on the air again on Saturday, hosting West Virginia downtown.  It's an 11 a.m. tip, so set your clocks and get their early.  Sean McDonough and Doris Burke are on the call for the game.

It's nice to get a chance to take a breather over these next couple of days, but we're back at it again this weekend.  Hope to see you all there on Saturday and Wednesday....

It's Madness!

The seconds are ticking away as we get closer and closer to the beginning of basketball season!  Midnight Madness will be here on Friday and you can feel the excitement on campus.  If you've ever been to a Midnight Madness event, you know that it is a fun way to start the season and get a look at the team.

Oh, You Fancy, Huh? ... Like Drake Fancy

So, if you haven't already heard the song, "Fancy" by Drake is played at least once a day in the sports information office.  And rightly so as far as I'm concerned!  We have been fancy thus far in the 2010-11 school year with a lot of new and exciting things happening on the Hilltop.  I'll give you the update in my world of publications as you enjoy the Georgetown Homecoming Weekend!

 

A Little Help from my Friends

On Tuesday evening, Diana Pulupa and I attended SneakerBall VII volunteering for the Greater Washington Sports Alliance.  It was a wonderful event that raised money for the foundation and celebrated some of the best athletes D.C. has to offer. 

Hoya Insider is Back!

Hoya Insider is back!  After a summer-long hiatus Hoya Insider is back and better than ever!  We've decided to change some things around this year.  We know that fans anticipated the new show every Thursday with the fine hosting of Meredith Cox and Kortney Robinson, but this year it's going to be a bit different.

2014?????

Today marks the first day of classes of the Class of 2014.  Yes, you read that correctly.  2014.  Can you believe it?  Last night was the pep rally at McDonough Arena welcoming all of the new students.  It was a great time (read the recap and see video here) but it got me to thinking about what these kids have seen in their lifetime.

If you clicked on this blog entry solely because it is the title to a Justin Bieber song, congratulations you are now one of my favorite Georgetown/Bieber fans!  While being the fan of Justin Bieber may be embarassing for a late-20's professional  such as myself, I see it as being down with what the "kids" are listening to these days.

Ticket Renewals are Underway

By Guest Blogger Steve Alleva

It is a busy time here in the Georgetown Athletic Ticket Office as the men's basketball season ticket renewal deadline is only a few days away (Friday, June 18). We are working with many account holders to help them upgrade and add seats as we get everyone settled in before we put season tickets on sale to new account holders in a few weeks.

Summer At Last!

Hey there Hoya fans, I know I haven't check in for a bit but I promise you that everyone around here has been getting a much-needed breather.  A lot of people ask what we do over the summer, some think we are on the same schedules as teachers getting a summer vacation.  While that luxury isn't the case, it has slowed down a bit around here...

All These Things that I Have Seen

We're closing on yet another year on the Hilltop and I just cannot believe it has gone by so quickly.  Sure, some of our sports are far from over - such as our women's lacrosse team, competing for the BIG EAST Championship tomorrow up in Piscataway - but there is a feeling on campus that it's nearly time for summer already.

 

Tis the Season for Holiday Giving

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Although the streets of Georgetown are bustling with holiday shoppers, it's pretty quiet around the halls of McDonough Arena.  While people are preparing for Christmas we began the dreaded Finals Week today.  Instead of athletes roaming the hallways or practicing, they are in the library cramming for exams.

Out-of-season Saturdays

I awoke at 6:30 on Saturday morning to head over to Yates for Georgetown swimming & diving picture day.  After being told to walk around back to the patio in order to get in, I hopped a fence, or two, to get in the building.  Our photographer Raf Suanes and I split sides of the pool and I figured things were going to run smoothly like the previous year.  However, that was not the case.  After a few shots of the freshmen and newcomers, Raf informed me that the shots were a little blurry.  This led to us shooting most of the student-athletes swimming freestyle and backstroke.

Honoring One of Our Own by Mex Carey

When many of us embark on a career in college athletics, we do so because we love sports and we love being in the college environment.  There is an excitement about being around student-athletes and coaches that makes you feel like you are part of a team and that you are not necessarily coming to work every day, but that you are coming to a place where you are doing your part to make the college experience better for the athletes you work with on a day-to-day basis.
