Hi there, it felt like a good time to bump this thread since I'm definitely feeling like a petulant little you-know-what at the moment. I'm presently watching two teams that look light years better than us play for a National Championship, as I scroll through social media photos from our own football team's 'Big Squat Friday'. I'm not sure anything has ever been more appropriately named than 'Big Squat Friday' than posting photos from the weight room while your league rivals play meaningful football 7 weeks after your season ended in a beatdown.

Happy New Year!
V for Villanova, V for veritable certainty of victory over Delaware.

Guess I am glad I am not a real fan! Wayne Hanby Go Blue Hens!
A belated Happy New Year Mr. Wayne!!!

Got a little story for you.

Was driving by the Wells Fargo Center a few weeks back. Pearl Jam who I have never seen but would like to was playing a concert. I decided to check it out. Show had just began so I slowly made way up to the door. I could hear the music when a security guard pointed me to the ticket booth to purchase a ticket. I looked at him and said: "Sir, Why should I have to buy a ticket?, I don't want to see the band, I only want to listen." :wink: :wink: :lol: :lol:

And for the record: Wayne Hanby = Real fan!!!!!!!!
Here's your chance Pat:

Pearl Jam
MAR
28
SAT
Royal Farms Arena
Baltimore, MD

Tickets on sale very soon.

Glad to know all is well here in Hen land! We are back at each other next fall and your usual hospitality is expected, of course. Can't believe we're homecoming! Last time it was Parent's Weekend and we ended up in a total s**thole in Elkton. We got ahead of it this time!

It will be great to see you SF. You guys are much more civil to one another on your board, must be the southern gentility. :wink:

Everything is peachy, we had the same nonsense on this board when we were winning and a regular participant in the playoffs.

Yeah, I loved Dylan's use of Honest Abe's quotation in the song "talkin WWIII blues from the album"-Freewheelin Bob Dylan". That album was loaded with great songs, especially my favorite Dylan tune-the powerful "Masters of War"

The last time UD had a really good season..

‘The Walking Dead’ was in it’s first year
‘Breaking Bad’ was in it’s 3rd season
‘Lost’ was in it’s final season. :shock:

Nice, I've seen Bob 20+ times. Now in his older years, I tell my concert-going pals that if 50% of the show is good, you've gotten your money worth. Some of the changes in the arrangements in the songs make them unrecognizable. The band is very tight. He has been on tour continuously for almost a decade. An icon for sure.
