Rowdy Calendar March 13th-20th
I am back on track this week after having a cold all last week. WVU lost to Kansas in the Big 12 tournament and Marshall won the Conference USA championship and are going to the NCAA tournament. (Trivia note: I did not know this but Jon Elmore went to our church and played church basketball in his younger days) March Madness starts on Weds and ends with the Championship game on Mon April 3rd. Now for the schedule this week:
Weds, March 14th - st...art of NCAA tournament. Check your schedules for times and teams.
Thurs March 15th - the Ides of March, watch your back, Caesar didn't. Trivia will be at Tricky Fish starting around 7:00 pm. We will be watching the TV and our backs while playing trivia. More NCAA games.
Friday March 16th - all the important teams play today and hopefully, on Sunday. They are all in the East Bracket. #2 Purdue starts the festivities by playing #15 CSU Fullerton at 12:40 pm in Detroit. #13 Marshall plays #4 Witchita St at 1:30 pm in San Diego and followed by #5 WVU playing #12 Murray State at 4 pm. If Marshall and WVU win they will play each other on Sunday. Purdue would not play Marshall or WVU (whoever keeps winning) until the sweet 16.
Also, Marshall baseball is playing a 3 game series with UAB at Power Park this weekend. Game on Friday starts at 4 pm, Sat is at 3 pm and Sun is at 12 pm. Big conflict with WVU basketball at 4 pm on Friday. Decisions, decisions....
Sat March 17th - East End St. Patricks Day Pub Crawl from 6 pm to 2 am. Tickets are $25 and more information on this website. If it doesn't rain, it should be a good time. In case you want to go someplace free and also rain free, Debora Greathouse is helping Barney's celebrate 11 years at 8 pm with 'music, fun and all the party fixins'. More NCAA games.
Sun March 18th - If Purdue, WVU, and Marshall win, then they will play today. Could not find times so check your schedules.
Tues March 20th - Debora Greathouse is playing at Barney's again from 5:30-8 pm
Spring training is in full force now. Todd is down in Florida this week and Toastman will be going in a week or so and check it out for us.

Rowdy Calendar Feb 27th - Mar 5th
Olympics are over now so have to go back to watching regularly scheduled programs. Pretty exciting stuff except that I always seem to tune in when they were showing curling. WVU is back to their winning ways and so is Purdue. WVU has one more regular season game on Sat and Purdue starts playing in the Big Ten tournament on Friday. UC men and women's basketball teams are playing this week in the Mountain East Tournament at the Civic Center. Sp...ring training games have started in Florida and Arizona and the Power start in about 5 weeks!
Here are this week's activities:
Weds Feb 28th - Mountain East tournament starts today. Talk to Rod if you're interested in going to any of the games. UC women play at 12 noon on Weds.
Thurs Mar 1st - trivia at Tricky starting around 7 pm. Last week it was quite crowded when we first got there with several teacher groups eating there (including our own Jennifer). Interesting and had a good time.
Friday March 2nd - UC men play at 8:15 against Shepherd at the Civic Center. Purdue plays either Rutgers, Minnesota, or Indiana at around 9 pm. in the Big Ten tournament.
Sat Mar 3rd - WVU plays their last regular game against Texas at Texas at 12 noon. Rowdys will gather at Adelphia's to watch the game.
Big 12 tournament starts next week. Have to wait to see when WVU plays.
Selection Sunday for March Madness is March 11th and the tournament will kick off on Weds Mar 13th. I guess the Big Ten have a whole week to rest up before playing.
Power home opener is Thurs April 5th!
Rowdy Calendar Feb 19th-Feb 26th
Spring training has started for MLB and the first games start Friday! I'm sure that some of the games will be on TV. The Olympics are still going on through this Sunday. Some how I manage to watch them when curling and/or figure skating is broadcasting.
WVU is still on the roller coaster, beating TCU and losing to Kansas and ranked #21. Purdue has started to follow WVU's lead and lost 3 in a row before winning against Penn State. Purdue is ra...nked 9th.
I have the scoop on the Gastropub closing. Their last day is April 20th. Apparently, the landlord raised the rent by $1000 so they are closing when the current lease is up. There is a rumor that someone working there is looking for a place to open up a bar/restaurant after the Gastropub shuts down.
Now onto this week's schedule:
Tues Feb 20th - WVU plays at Baylor starting at 7 pm. Rowdys will gather at Adelphia's to watch the game.
Weds Feb 21st - UC plays UV @ Wise at home. Women's game starts at 5:30 and men's at 7:30.
Thurs Feb 22nd - (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GEORGE W) - trivia will be at Tricky Fish starting around 7 pm. Purdue plays at Illinois at 7 pm on FS1. We should be able to watch the game at tricky. Last week it was ugly with Wisconsin beating Purdue by 4 points.
Friday - Feb 23rd - Spring training games start. Check your local listings for times.
Sat - Feb 24th - UC plays WV State at home starting at 2 pm for the ladies game and 4 pm for the men's game. This is the last home game for UC before the Mountain East tournament. WVU plays at home against Iowa State at 6 pm. Rowdys will gather at Adelphia's to watch the game. Talk to Barb and she can save you a seat.
Sun Feb 25th - Closing ceremony starts at 6 am (Korea is 14 hours ahead of us). That's pretty early for me. Purdue plays Minnesota at home starting at 4 pm. This is the last game for Purdue before the Big Ten tournament.
Mon Feb 26th - WVU plays #6 Texas Tech at home starting at 9 pm. Pretty late for me.
The Mountain East tournament starts Weds Feb 28th at noon and ends on Sun March 4th, last game is at 3:30 pm. All games are at the Charleston Civic Center. Talk to Toastman if you're interested in going to any of the games.
Big Ten Tournament starts Weds Feb 28th and ends on Sun March 4th. All games are at Madison Square Gardens in NYC (what???, seems like it could be closer).
WVU has 2 more games next week, Monday and Sat, Mar 3rd. The Big 12 tournament starts on Weds March 7th and ends on Sat March 10th.
Marshall starts playing baseball at Power Park on March 16th.
Home opener for the Power is on April 5th, a short 6 1/2 weeks away!
NEWS ALERT!!!!! Before we get started on the Rowdy activities for this week it has come to our attention that the B&D Gastropub (formerly known as Murad's) is closing in April. The food guy in the paper said the end of Feb but the waitress last week said April. In any case, we need to start going there on a regular basis. We could even do pitcher reports there. Several rumors as to why they are closing but I think it has to do with the owner of the building not taking care of... maintenance problems (heating for example) and their lease is up.
Winter Olympics are going on and have been fun to watch. WVU basketball is on a roller coaster ride and depending on what day it is depends on what team shows up. They had a couple wins and a loss and are now ranked #20. Purdue had a couple of losses this week to ranked teams, each by 3 pts or less and are now ranked #6.
Now for this week's schedule. Spring training has started for some teams and the rest start tomorrow. Baseball season is upon us!
Thurs. Feb 15th - trivia at tricky fish starting around 7:30.I dont think Toastman will be there but the rest of the regulars should be. Purdue plays at Wisconsin at 7 PM. It is on ESPN so we should be able to watch it at Tricky Fish.
Sat Feb 17th - WVU plays at #13 Kansas at 6 pm. Most Rowdys will be at Adelphia's or Hooter's.
Sun Feb 18th - Purdue plays Penn State at 8 pm. That's really going to cut into my Olympics watching.
WVU plays at Baylor on Tues, Feb 20th at7 pm
UCls next home game is against W@Wise on Weds, Feb 2lst at 5:30 and 7:30. That means that Trivia will be on Thurs, Feb 22nd.
Spring Uaining games start on Fri Feb 23rd.
Marshall starts playing baseball at Power Park in March. That's it for now! See vou soon!
