I normally keep my mouth shut when i disagree with someone on the boneyard because I try to just have a positive attitude, but yes you are in the minority, because you are so wrong on so many counts. First because you disagree with GENO, (Auriemma said he originally didn't envision CPTV having such a great impact on his program."At the time, I really didn't give it much thought because I didn't really think it was going to evolve into, `Hey, that's our NESN. That's our YES Network,"' he said. "I had no idea. And then it turned out to be probably the greatest thing that's ever happened to our program and the greatest thing that's ever happened to them.")
"Geno is a God, never disagree with a God. (sorry icebear)
Second I was happy just watching the games on tv. Seeing all the sellouts and figure seeing the game on tv is better then being way up in Hartford. I went to an away game at St. Johns then went to a game at Hartford and saw that everyone knew everyone. It was a place to go have fun and share with my wife and 2 sons. Even my wildest dreams of being part of that have reached a level beyond what i thought was possible.
Next a friend I met gave me basketballs on a string that later I thought would look great on a wig but that is a whole other story,(RIP Kathy) I had no idea that I was going to meat so many fun friends that I could share a Love for Womens Basketball with.
I really can go on and on but the combination of CPTV ( I still see Harriot and Mary, the people who were not only making a living but brought joy to so many) and UConn which made me part of the boneyard and a UConn fan, (Yes when I die I will be buried wearing my wig, THIS IS NOT SARCASM. ) Makes me ask the question why not just put the tv on mute during the part of the donations and just watch the best basketball team EVER play? CPTV was a BIG part of making CONNECTICUT THE BASKETBALL CAPITOL OF THE WORLD.
