GERRY MCNAMARA IS RUINING SOCIAL LIVES OF UW COEDS: College football season is right around on the corner, and like the Syracuse sports blog NUNES MAGICIAN, a game already on my radar screen is the titantic intersectional tilt between Syracuse and the University of Washington on August 31 at the Carrier Dome.
I just wish I could say the same for Allison Peryea, law student at the Univ. of Washington and columnist for the UW school newspaper THE DAILY: “I am a big anti-fan of guys who have to drink heavily to engage in social interaction, guys who say mean things to try to get a girl’s attention, and guys who construct shrines to Syracuse basketball in their living rooms.”
It is odd that she would connect alcoholism with building wall shrines to Jim Boeheim, but I don’t doubt the veracity of her account. And I guess that now means there’s at least one Pacific Northwest resident who won’t be pregaming at Tully’s come late August in lovely central New York.
