Opens Penn -2

Just like the wind chill factor on 34th Street

Too bad I'm not a gambler.

You're lucky you're not a gambler. I'm kind of surprised you are so high on Princeton for this game. I'm just as high on Penn.
The two teams are about even. We're playing at home. Do you remember the last time you came down to the Palestra? Pure luck you won that one. You're team was quite a bit better last year.
It's Penn's turn. We're due. Much looks like he's going to be a nice player for you, but not tomorrow. Intimidated by his first time in the Cathedral. All you'll be talking about after the game is how lousy the refs were. You're lucky you're not a gambler.

As I said earlier, possibly irrational exuberance.

I just have a pretty good feeling about the way this group is playing--their development has tracked the way I viewed it from preseason, down to the continuing weak spots but with their best ball ahead of them.

I admit that I'm concerned about this game. But, it's good to hear the chest thumping over on the Penn board. It will make a win over the Quackers that much more enjoyable.

I see very little chest thumping from Penn fans. I read a lot of hopeful thoughts (I sure have some), but plenty of concern to go around. That's fun because it means Penn has gotten back to a point that it matters again.

I'm hoping for a good game with a Quakers victory, but expect a seriously tough game that could go either way depending on whose 3's are falling...

Aha. We can disregard westphillywarrior prior comments.

After reading Penn's posts over the years, Penn BB fans are by a large an extension of Philadelphia sport fans. By definition, Freud would have a field day.

You may well be right that it will be a competitive game with 3s' deciding it but it might turn out to be a blow out for either team. Vegas always has reasons as to establishing betting lines.

This is nice. It's been quite awhile since Penn and Princeton fans have talked smack like this.

If the first post I read tomorrow morning is a whine about officiating, I'll be a happy guy.

It now looks like all the whining will have to be postponed until Sunday. I don't know who's going to be whining about what, but I'll bet a body part that somebody's going to be whining about something. Kvetching is the one constant of Ivy basketball.

Friday night, no game. Looks like an evening at home with martinis and Meow Mix.

That's a hard bet to evaluate. Some Penn guys are known for excessively touting body part size.

Sunny, mid 70s, light breezes diluting the smoke from burning garbage.

Makes me sentimental about the drive through Philadelphia.

Although oddly enough, his face has a distinctive orange hue to it.

Let's call this one a wash and move on.

The air is as clean here now as in Princeton. I too remember the odor of the Schuylkill with raw sewage during rainstorms and the polluted haze that existed 40 years ago. But not now. You should visit some time.
