I'm guilty of the same. Buffalo shopping for me. Awesome stuff.

I remember the days when you could just flash a drivers license at the border and get in. It's crazy how fast and drastically things changed.

That's great, glad we could be of assistance. All we ask is that you don't dump all your old clothing in the parking lot at the Galleria when you put on your five layers of new duds.

I think I can do that. Deal.

UMass. Born in Boston, had a couple of cousins who went there, and any place that produced the Pixies and J Mascis is OK by me.

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

I like all of the A-10 programs for one reason or another, and root for all OOC. Gotta say majority of the fans I have met from each school were classy. I hate the thought there might be abreakup of what we have finally acquired -- sitll hoping it does not happen. To close to say one 2nd favorite, would say it was close between Xavier, GW, Dayton & Temple.

Sep. 11 changed all that as you have found out. We're all terrorists here until proven otherwise.
Customs/immigration guys seem to be a total crapshoot. I've never had any American ones be anything but polite to me. The last time I visited Canada, the guy was a total prick. He really didn't seem to believe me that I was going to a wedding. Chinese immigration officials never say anything. (Everyone needs a visa, so things are pretty clear cut for them.)

Seriously. I drove home from Canada one bleary-eyed Thursday morning in 1999 with a trunk full of Molson XXX and Cuban cigars. And when the guy asked us if we had anything to declare, the driver didn't even remove the cuban from his mouth to say "I'm proud to be an American, sir." The customs guy faux saluted, said "welcome home, son" and waved us through.

I miss those days.

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

Haven't been here in a couple of years but, as the Owls get ready to leave the A-10, I wanted to chime in here.

I love A-10 fans. We had a lot of good times with them over the years.

Playing roulette with Fordham and Duquesne fans in AC. We were all playing ballplayer numbers and doing pretty well. We drove some hotshot kids from New York crazy.

A couple of years ago, we had a nice back-and-forth with some folks from Dayton at the LC. We went out for drinks and munchies with them afterward. Good people.

We used to run into two couples from URI in AC. And, for some reason, we always sat next to Richmond fans. Nice folks all around.


Long before X came into the A-10, some X fans helped me out at the Cincinnati airport. So a soft spot that pre-dates the league.

St. Joe and LaSalle fans are different because we have been running into them since the days of eating at Pagano's after Palestra doubleheaders, so they kind of transcend the A-10.

The year Butler played so well in the pre-season NIT, I ran into Green's family - I cannot remember hs first name, the nice guard from Philly. They were on a SEPTA train going to Trenton and onto the Garden. I rooted for the Bulldogs then and will continue to (except when they play the Owls).

That's just a couple of things off the top of my head. I always root for the Philly teams and the A-10 teams when they aren't playing Temple (Villanova less so but....). I will always do that, no matter where everyone ends up.

I forgot: A VERY soft spot for the Bonnies. I dated a Bonaventure grad when I lived in DC.

Re: 2nd Favorite A-10 Team

Butler won the 2006 preseason NIT with wins over Notre Dame, Indiana, Tennessee, and Gonzaga

Mike Green was great. Best point guard Butler has had, maybe ever

Watching SLU making Bobby Huggins sweat was always a good time.
My third favorite is Duquesne, as I'm a huge Pirates fan and have always enjoyed my time in Pittsburgh.

The least favorites are Dayton (due exclusively to this board), Fordham and Bonnie.
Great summation. Hate playing SLU, love rooting for them.

But my second favorite team will be the school that replaces Fordham in the A-10. Seems that program can singlehandedly embarrass the conference and bring everyone's RPI down. It would be different if the school leaders would try, but they don't care about athletics. That's fine, but get of the Athletic conference then.
