Loving all these Buff and Blue memories... Colonial Nation is alive and well...
I remember Mike Brown coming to Foggy Bottom as "The New Washington Monument" and then fellow Garden State hoopster Troy Webster joining him at GW - everyone had high hopes for the bigtime.
I remember those large hoops schedules posted on boards on the side of the old music townhouse, facing Marvin Center at 21st & H. Later, when GW was knocking rowhouses down almost daily and razed the music building, the university put poles up for the schedule boards. That corner became motorcycle parking for a while.
I remember chanting "Georgetown Sucks" at the Smitty, no matter who GW was playing!
I remember the George mascot with the giant rubber head - the mascot person had to look, breath and eat/drink from a hole in the front of George's "neck." He had to lean the giant head back and put a straw up the the hole and it looked like our mascot had a trachiotomy! When he ran, his giant rubber face would billow and I remember some fans throwing gum at the head to see if it would stick.
I remember my roommate and I going to "the 'bone" way too often for burgers and he loved those Isabellas.
I remember Freshman year seeing stickers for sale in the GW Bookstore that were old and they had a logo that looked like Notre Dame's ND and fighting Irishman but the two big letters were "GW" with a Colonial leaning on the letters. There was a whole stack but I only bought one and stuck it on my window in Madison Hall. Wish I had bought all of them!
Huge pocket sandwiches - usually chicken or egg salad - at the first floor cafeteria in Marvin Center.
The travel board on the ground floor of Marvin Center, listing states and cities over all the country.
The late, great Fraternity Row along G Street, between 20th and 21st streets, where you could go from party to party even if you didn't belong to one if them - a great GW tradition. I remember taking an english final in Stuart Hall across the street , with the windows open, and the parties had begun so I know summer was about to begin!
Meeting some of the best people in the world.
