Isn’t it though?
It was almost worse too, Villanova needed overtime and refs to beat Robert Morris. Penn State CRUSHED Bobby Mo this season. It is always fun when Notre Dame loses too. I don’t have much of an opening on Georgetown, other than Penn State fans were out cheering at Verizon Center for a good part of a 2004 game.
Oh and I’m in the last place in the bracket I put together. Clearly, the 3 minutes I put into it were a waste.
The first Congressional Bowl between Navy (if they win six games) and the ACC 9th place team (!) will be at Nationals Park on December 20 (The Post). RFK Stadium, which hosted the Redskins for over 35 seasons was also considered. I would have preferred RFK Stadium because it has an actual football field designed into it and is completely enclosed and wouldn’t have been fun to see some midshipmen rocking the movable stands? However, the seating layout would only be better there than at Nationals Park for fans on the lower level. Those seats at RFK are oriented for football, but the upper deck is shaped for baseball, so the sightlines are not much better than the upper deck at Nationals Park. Other pluses for having the game at Nationals Park include the HD scoreboard and food.
I may go this game, we’ll see. I would almost certainly cheer for Navy, who would be my third favorite college football team if I had one.
Congressional Bowl, college football, D.C.
