Before we get into the actual game information and facts, all of which you readers have been addressing in your comments since Navy’s 10 play 75 yard drive in the beginning of the 1st quarter, allow me to talk about some other aspects of Pitt football and The Pitt Blather.
First off, except for the game itself, the last two days were about as great as college football can be. The atmosphere surrounding the bowl from noon on Sunday (when I checked into a hotel in Annapolis) through the pre-game tailgates until the end of the game was top-notch and everyone was happy and glad to be there.
The evening pub crawl was the most fun I have had in many years and I mean that literally. At each stop the bars and restaurants were jammed with Pitt fans that were chanting, singing and talking, loudly, about the 2015 season and our new head coach.
It really made me, and others I’m sure, very proud of the university and the team.
There were some funny things going on – for some reason just because I did that article on here about Annapolis and the Pub Crawl, which was also pasted up on Facebook by a Pitt fan group, whenever I was introduced to anyone they always asked “Hey, where are we supposed to go next?” like I was a tour guide or something.
I honestly didn’t remember the exact things I wrote and had to ask my friend to look that article up on his phone.
Also, I met about 50+ fans who ‘read the Blather but don’t post on it’. It always surprises me a bit when someone says that and when I asked why they mostly said that they felt like an outsider because of all the regular commenters we have on here.
