Busy Weekend

WVU fans could have a busy weekend should they want to do more than tailgate with the Bastards and go to the WVU football game. The Men's Soccer team defeated Virginia last night (minus one Australian fan who was booted from the stadium for swearing at the referees) 1-Nil to advance to the Sweet 16. The Mountaineers will play Wake Forest this weekend in Winston Salem with game time and TBD. Meanwhile the Women's Soccer team will play for a chance at the Final Four with a home game against USC on Friday at 7 pm. The Women of Troy are the higher seed, but unable to host the game due to stadium construction. Good timing as I'm sure the ladies are happy to be leaving Southern Cal for Morgantown in December. WVU Soccer player Ashley Banks has been named a semifinalist for the Hermann Trophy which is suspiciously similar to the Heisman Trophy. If you hate soccer, which most people do, then maybe basketball is more your speed. The WVU men will take on Winthrop at 1 pm this Saturday which could make some RV owners unhappy with parking. Winthrop has made three straight NCAA appearances and come into the game with a 4-2 record led by Michael Jenkins and Taj McCullough both averaging over 15 points per game. Finally, the WVU women participate in the FAU Classic on both Saturday and Sunday as they take on St. Bonaventure and Columbia (a school I think, hopefully not the country).

Also the Mountaineer Taint Stabbing team will be having a knife throw off with the semi-professional Hibachi Warriors. If you haven't seen it before, it's quite a show. Clay taints are launched into the brisk winter air at Marilla park as competitors throw knifes to simulate a fatal taint knife throwing attack. A must see.
