20 Reasons to be Excited for Syracuse Football - #16

As we move closer to the 2011 Syracuse football season, Lots of Pulp will be counting down the top 20 reasons to be excited for the new year.

Nancy Cantor, also known as “Chancy Nancy” or "Turn Left and Cough" (check sidebar pic), once deemed Newhouse III's architecture as a shining beacon of freedom of speech to the world with undulating waves that welcomed the city to nuzzle in symmetrically.

I have a feeling, despite my over exaggerated paraphrasing, that the only thing being nuzzled was a glass of Schnapps by Nancy.

Anyways, Newhouse has given Syracuse more than a nook to squeeze next to, it's produced a terrific amount of sportscasters and ESPN workers, hence


$3 pitchers of Miller Lite? Hiiiiyooooo!

Forget about Doug Gottleib for a second. Think about how lucky Syracuse is to have alumni swimming around ESPN. Usually we're given a lot of terrific coverage. They've been kind enough to grace us with the bandwidth to huddle around our computers and watch grainy footage of the Orange dismantling Akron.

But it's cool to be well represented and get that personal flavor on a broadcast. Despite how far removed from the Hill, or from you, there's an inkling that this announcer probably has thrown up in the alley outside Chucks, grinded on something at Maggie's or toasted it up at Konrad's, Faegan's, Darwin's, etc.

The announcers know about the tough winters, when the spring breaks at about 60 degrees and everyone freaks out as bikini's appear and frisbees fly.

They've probably even sweated in the student section of the Dome and enjoyed some nachos to try and cure their hangover, only to fail miserably.

Looking out for them this year ( I realize they don't all call College games but just enjoy the list – I would love to hear Craig Carton call a Cuse game soon)):
Pin It Now!
