Hello from Iona

Welcome to the Portfolioso.com coverage of the Iona vs. Fairfield game, reporting live delayed from the Hines Athletic Center. Don’t make fun of me, I am not a trained sportswriter and am not affiliated with anything. I also make poor travel decisions: an evening trip to Westchester, only to go back to school later and then come back to Westchester again the next day. Then Fairfield again the day after that… But that’s not the point.

Few game/ campus notes: The campus security cars went around nonstop with annoying flickering yellow lights that almost gave me a seizure – very unnecessary. The dance team had some Led Zeppelin in their performance which was impressive, but they also had some weird kind of bubbleboy contest. Iona’s old man pep band was interesting and played the Super Mario theme, Family Guy theme and other interesting songs (hint to Fairfield’s pep band – learn new material, it’s getting old hearing Impression 20 times). The stands were a little empty since Iona is still on break until Monday. A few hecklers were picking on Han calling out “blowout” and “Yeager Bombs” (Watch “my new haircut” on Youtube). Although last year, my aunt (a Gaels fan) gave Han shit about his appearance. Now that I’m off topic, this is why I don’t write for the Mirror. Anyway…

The Stags had a decent first quarter: the lead changed 8 times and they were only down by 4. In the second half, it all went downhill for the Stags. Cooley was pissed, the jacket came off and he got ejected. This kid Prodanovic kept hitting 3 pointers and the Stags ended up losing 67-52. 21 turnovers for the Stags. This is terrible coverage by the way – you should check out Keith’s game summary – he knows what he’s talking about, unlike me.

Then we left and went to McDonalds, and Eric L. doesn’t believe that New Rochelle High School is huge and has its own lake/pond. Until next time (actually probably not this was a special treat).
