When it rains it pours.

I suppose it is appropriate that the day after suffering a humiliating defeat to Georgetown- btw, has anyone talked to her lately? Our beloved Mountaineers are featured on Deadspin again. In much the same vein as the article highlighting our world champion male twirler, they have a nice video clip of the YMCA dancer. If that guy isn't embarassed I suppose we shouldn't be either, um, woot? It is just your authors humble opinion that it would be nice to be known for other things when it comes to deadspin. We are much cooler than their beloved Illini, aren't we? Maybe that could explain things a little.

While I do appreciate their fondness of the gentleman pictured herein, I just wish they didn't latch on to every sideline attraction that makes (at least a few) Mountaineer fans cringe and think, "I hope deadspin doesn't find this." I personally saw the YMCA dance at the Pitt game, where it obviously failed to deliver the magic it did in the UCLA win.

I don't want you to get the wrong idea about this post. I have no problem with that guy doing his YMCA dance, it is pretty funny when he does the pelvic thrusting. Nor do I take issue with a guy a who aspires to twirl batons while clad in glitter- and apparently he is a world champion. I would simply prefer to see more aggrandizement of the team than I have seen lately. I can't believe I got as salty about that post as I have. On the other hand, I am not so salty as to start pushing others- and certainly not so salty as to do such under the giant baseball cap on High Street. I guess in the spirit of things- you should watch the deadspin clip of our boy. Should we see about adding him somewhere near our boy Lorello? Or does he have to cockblock somebody first? I dunno how that works exactly. Woot.

They have been having fat guys do the YMCA dance for years now at the Coliseum. I hate when someone then "finds out about it" and it becomes a big deal to everyone else complete with every sterotypical West Virginia joke in the book. It makes me mad enough to want to knock that big building down by punching the wall.
