HATE WEEK(END): LA SALLE

New, comments

You don't do the Landshark! STOP THAT RIGHT NOW!

For those of you who, like me until yesterday, were wholly unfamiliar with Lasalle, here are some quick facts.

  • La Salle is a small, private, Catholic university.
  • They're located in Philadelphia.
  • They almost had to shut the place down in the 1930's because they went broke.
  • They're a member of the unaptly named Atlantic 10 conference. Philadelphia is on the Delaware River which flows into the Atlantic ocean. There's the connection.
  • Don't even try to explain why universities in Ohio, Indiana, and Missouri are in the Atlantic 10.
  • La Salle's teams are known as the "Explorers."
  • Here is their logo, which features one of the Three Musketeers, presumably, exploring:


    That, or he's a peeping tom, which is not cool, y'all.
  • Odds of an Ole Miss fan, slightly inebriated and woozy from a lunch at Oklahoma Joe's washed down with a few pints of Kansas City's own Boulevard beer, of shouting "HEY! WHATCHA ESSPLORIN?! SOME DUDE'S BUTT?!" - 1:1
  • Oh, and tipoff has been announced for 6:40 PM Central on TruTV, who will make more money in ad revenue this weekend than they have all year due entirely to Marshall Henderson.
