Crucify Holy Cross: AU's Cheer Sheet


Garrison Carr. (By Preston Keres - TWP)

Two American University posts in a row, but c'mon, when was the last time American hosted a Patriot League quarterfinal? (Answer: Last February 28).

A loyal reader passed along the Blue Crew's Facebook event info for tonight's game. If you're the sort who can gain massive taunting inspiration from the first names of the mothers of Patriot League basketball players, you're really gonna want to make it to Bender Arena tonight. Incidentally, the athletic department is feeling sprightly about the Eagles' chances, writing a release that says "The Eagles will begin their journey to the NCAA Tournament on Wednesday, March 5, against the Crusaders at 7:30 p.m."

The introductory info:

Event Name: RE-PHIL BENDER!!!!!
Tagline: Don't Stop Believing.... (The Eagles' unofficial theme song)

AU IS 3 WINS AWAY FROM THE BIG DANCE!!!!

HOLY CROSS WILL BE CRUCIFIED!
COME, SCREAM, YELL, BE BLUE IN THE FACE

2 Lucky Fans Have the Chance at Halftime to WIN A BRAND NEW CAR!!!

Come watch mercer and carr run the court on the purple parasite's of holy cross.

("Things you NEED to know" after the jump)

Tim Clifford # 00
(the ugliest human in the galaxy)
He's a Sr. its only right that he finishes last in his last game EVER!
Son of Alice
Has two twin sisters (Jaclyn and Kerrie) double team?
Kerrie is the captain of the UMASS swim team (swim suits?)

Andrew Beinert #22
Son of Mary Jo
played AAU ball for the Long Island Lightning. (wtf?)

Andrew Keister#34 (i wish i made up that last name)
Son of Elizabeth Keister
Has one sister (Dana)

Kyle Cruze #2
Son of BUDDY and Helen Cruze ...
Has one brother (Winston) ???????
and one sister (Charlotte)

Ramon Colon #24
Son of Ramon Colon and Marianela Ceballos
(parents with two different last names.. could that make him a ______ ?)
one sister (Christina)

Pat Doherty #20
He is 5-11 dont give him that extra inch.

Then comes the roster, with this command: "(once again scream horrible things)"

Ok, so it's not quite Kevin Love material, but geez, did something get in the water in Tenleytown? Let's just hope Tim Clifford's mother Alice isn't there tonight.

Advice from soneone who has seen Clifford: that picture is outdated he now has a buzzed head and looks almost uglier. He's some type of ogre or inbred. Still he is a very good down low player. He got in foul trouble vs MD but still played well.

I like how they put the players' moms on the list. Real classy.

I have no respect for the people who actually talk about a guy's mother at a basketball game(UVA).

ETA for Holy Cross fans to arrive to complain about this is about 10 minutes.

All it takes is one idiot to make our school look bad...is it really worth it to fire up the Holy Cross team which has beaten our asses in as far back as we can remember? forget about looking forward to the championship against a #2-seeded Navy team who has beaten us twice this season. It wouldn't shock me if we don't get passed the first round.

Tonight is not going to be easy...GO AU!!
