Back the Oakland Zoo

Filed under: Basketball,Fans — Chas @ 7:44 pm

I wish I could have posted this earlier, but I’ve been out and away from the computer since early this morning.

The Oakland Zoo is trying to win the Naismith Awards Student Section of the Year prize. Along with basically showing that they can mobilize their base to vote over and over in an internet poll, the Pitt general scholarship fund gets $10,000.

It’s been neck-and-neck. VCU has been the upstart trying to pull off the late win. Voting ends tonight at midnight.

Vote here and support the students that have been the reason the Pete has been such an awesome place to see a game.

UPDATE: The Oakland Zoo took 1st in the fan voting.





I don’t do Facebook. So any of you out there who do, please put in an extra Oakland Zoo vote for me. Carpe Diem and Hail to Pitt!

Congrats Oakland Zoo !!!

Having grown up close enough to hear the Lions roar at night going to bed, I love the Zoo.

The Pittsburgh Zoo too !

Panthers on the Prowl !

Btw, I think they should expand the Oakland Zoo number of seats.

Some of these deadbeats who hardly show up for the games, and who never make any noise.

Fitzgerald rocked because over 50% of the seats were student section.

Expand the Zoo, expand the Zoo !! haha

Guess we’ll use this one for a hoops blog.

16 ranked teams in action today.

I’ll predict at least 25% of them will lose.

Not as much action today.

Two key BigEast games today.

Syracuse vs G-Town.
Marquette @ Villimanilli

Had we taken care of business Monday nite, some of these teams would have been coming back to us.

Oy Vey

Crapola….we have a Noon game tomorrow.

Well I won’t miss noon games, that’s for sure.

But who knows what ESPN will do with the scheduling, will they put an ACC game on Monday nites with PITT, Cuse, L-Ville & ND soon to be in the league.
