I watched plenty of football on Saturday and Sunday, but this right here was the highlight of my sports-viewing weekend. I caught the final couple minutes of regulation and then overtime of the Puerto Rico Tip Off semifinal between Xavier and Virginia Tech with a couple of die-hard Xavier fans, and it’s hard to ask much more out of the end of a game.
If you haven’t seen this by now, don’t worry, you’re not alone. The stands are almost completely empty; I think I played seventh grade rec league games with more fans in attendance. You know, it’s almost like the fan bases of southern Ohio and backwoods Virginia aren’t inclined to travel to Puerto Rico for their college hoops teams.
[Edit: I originally wrote West Virginia instead of Va. Tech. I commonly confuse the two schools, partly because I don’t care, but mostly because I’m retarded.]
