Talkin' Bout My Generation

The guys who write this blog are one step closer to being a pledge class - we gave each other nicknames officially late this Thursday. So for all you fans of this blog (and please be sure that you put my apartment number on the envelope when addressing fan mail to me, my neighbors don't like delivering me missent mail) here is a quick run-down of the nicknames:

Generation Laughna: Michael Karam

Generation Ewing: Tom Wong

Generation Othella: Steve Thomas

Generation Burton: John Hawkes

Generation Roy: Steve Medlock.

What does all of this mean you maybe asking? While the psychologists out there can speculate about what compels five guys to give themselves nicknames that remind them of their college days, I'd like to contend that its this multi-generational perspective that gives the Georgetown so much to draw on. Since I was born mid-way through the original Ewing's Sophomore year, I've had to learn about Hoya history from those who experienced it. That's one of the reasons that I'm really excited that MASN is now running Hoya Classics - especially since I wasn't out of diapers when the sweater game happened. In that spirit as we look backwards over the past 100 years of Hoya Hoops over the next year we're looking forward this weekend as well.

LOOKING FORWARD

New Rivalries?

The Hoyas are in the midst of a stretch of games featuring newly minted Big East teams (DePaul, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Marquette). While its still too early to tell if any of these teams will become Georgetown inter-conference rivals as Syracuse, St. John's, and Villanova did during Generation Ewing, Generation Roy has the chance of being able to brag that they remember where the bad blood started between the Hoyas and one of the new Big East schools.

Discussing the Future with Athletice Director, Bernard Muir

All members of the Hoya Hoop Club are invited to the open membership meeting before the Cincinnati game on Saturday in the Coca Cola Theater at Verizon Center. The theater is on the fourth floor of Verizon (who knew it had a 4th floor?). Please see the Hoop Club e-mail on the subject to find out when you can ask the Hoop Club board and Athletic Director, Bernard Muir what plans the organization has in the future.

LOOKING BACK

Hoya Fans Invade New Jersey, Leave Promptly

As was mentioned in this space before the Hoop Club roadtrip to the Seton Hall game was a big success. Special thanks go out to everyone who made it happen. Those of us who watched the game on MASN could hear the excellent job Hoya fans did supporting their team at the game.

100 Years of Hoya Hoops

Georgetown celebrate 100 years of Hoya Hoops during their game against Marquette on February 10th. Following the game there will be an amazing gala event to celebrate the traditions of Georgetown basketball over the last century. Beg, borrow, steal - cash in your 401(k) - do whatever you have to do to get inside the Verizon Center on 2/10.
