Before we go about our respective evening plans I feel it necessary to ask for a moment of silence. You see, tonight the Canisius College Golden Griffins will travel down the 90 to take on the Syracuse Orange. Now while I don’t think the result of this journey was ever in doubt, recent events have combined to give this game the potential to be really, really bad.
You see, Canisius is not that good. This isn’t much of a surprise to anyone. What also isn’t much of a surprise is that Syracuse is indeed a very good basketball team. As someone who watched them dismantle Long Beach State on Saturday I can say they have the potential to do some real damage in the tournament next March.
So tonight Canisus isn’t just going to lose, they are going to get murdered. This is going to be an angry Orange team taking on a hapless group of Griffs. There will be no “hanging in there”, only an outright slaughter that the crowd will be begging to see. That frustration from that three point dagger will be taken out in full force.
So tonight say a prayer for the Griffs. It’s going to be a long bus ride back to the 716.
