Live [sic] TV

I mentioned before how I tend to get an early idea of UMBC's lacrosse schedule by seeing other schools' schedules when they come out. This year, when the schedule came out, once again, I had a pretty good idea what to expect. Since I live in NC, I was pleased to see four games televised nationally on ESPNU.

Recently, Inside Lacrosse put out a press release talking about increased lacrosse coverage on the ESPN family of networks. So again, I go looking for UMBC's games. It turns out all but one of them, a conference game against Hartford, are on tape delay. So for the other televised matchups--anticipated showdowns with Carolina, Hopkins, and College Park, I have to either keep a watchful eye on scores as the games take place or isolate myself so as to be surprised when watching the gam hours later.

In mostly unrelated news, my two alma maters shared an opponent over the past 10 day period. the ECU women's basketball team was down at USF for the USF Shootout, where they walked away with a victory from my Bulls. Eight days later, up in the Bronx, the Lady Pirates  ran into the UMBC Retrievers at the Fordham Holiday Classic, where the Dawgs handed them their second loss of the season. Not a bad coup for the women's hoops team, especially while our men's team hasn't been given us anything to write home about.

So since I fancy myself a blogger, I suppose I should do something like a year-in-review type post. But I don't have any real angles at hand. To all the folks (ha!) reading this: Any suggestions? I suppose I've got about a day and a half to crank it out. If not, everyone have a happy new year!
