Appalachian State News....sort of

I was checking my lastest feeds in Bloglines and came across this post on the Appalachian Alumni office blog maintained by Rob.

Mountaineer Madness at midnight
The 2006-07 Appalachian basketball season gets underway Friday night with the fourth-annual Mountaineer Madness. A special guest host will be on-hand that night - 16-time world champion Ric Flair:

Flair will help host the event as he joins the ASU faithful in ushering in the 2006-07 men’s and women’s hoops seasons.

The evening begins with volleyball taking on SoCon rival Davidson at 8 p.m. on the Holmes Center floor.

The madness continues at 10:30 p.m. as Mountaineer Madness begins. The ASU men’s and women’s basketball teams will be signing autographs and posing for pictures as fans enter the Holmes Center.

Admission is free. The men’s basketball schedule begins November 13. The women’s basketball team begins play November 11.

With regard to the volleyball team, it is currently in second-place in the SoCon and boasts the league’s player of the week, Dianna Thomas.

RIC FLAIR!! How cool is that!!! And I bet Rob is probably going to get to meet him...Well, at least take pictures to share, OK?

(I'm jealous...)

Ric Flair fuh real? As a NC girl, I gotta say that other than Dusty Rhodes, he was everybody's favorite wrestler. We'll need to make sure Rob gets his torso autographed or whatever.

PS Thanks for visiting Mommymatic! When did you graduate from App?

Thanks for the visit too!

I was in the same high school class as Rob and your husband, but I took my time about getting a degree and graduated from App in 2001. Were you there also?

Rob said...

*SIGH* ... Nope .. I missed the great one. I actually spent the weekend back in Da Ville. Had dinner with the Nazrios and McRaes.

My bud Marie has a great photo from the night -


Just scroll down.

That's too bad, I was going to live vicariously through you. But you might get more opportunities, looks like his daughter is on the volleyball team.

How is the old hometown doing? I'll be coming back that way for Christmas this year. Maybe we can get together and compare kids. ;)
