CAPITAL CITY

After winning five consecutive Big East conference games, the Hall now heads to the nation’s capital to tackle the biggest Goliath of them all: G-town. It’s a match-up that only a couple weeks ago had “BLOWOUT” written all over it. Well, Las Vegas, I hope you write your predictions in pencil, because one thing is certain: erasable pens don’t actually work.

Hey, call me crazy. Call me “Cray,” even. (The name of our crayfish.) And maybe I am. But this I know for certain: I’m going to this game. Fortunately, I have a lot of family members in the area I can stay with, many of which I haven’t seen in quite some time.

Will they recognize me in my Gonzone shirt? Will they recognize the man I’ve become? Would former Seton Hall head coach Louis Orr even recognize Brian Laing, the scrawny forward he recruited five years ago from St. Raymond’s who has blossomed into a legitimate NBA prospect, BIG EAST player-of-the-year contender? Brian…is that you?

So I hope you’re listening DC! Prepare yourself, because the Hall is coming, and so am I.
