crosstown shootout

Rivalry since 1953

Round these parts, if you give a hoot about college basketball, you're glued to the UC/Xavier game.

Me? I see it as an opportunity for wings.

A small group assembled at the Buffalo Wild Wings joint. I remember it as BW-3, but our server couldn't identify what that third "W" was all about. I thought it was for "weck" and everybody gave me a blank look.

According to their site, I am right—and thank goodness for wikipedia, now I know what weck means (basically a Kaiser roll topped with lots of pretzel salt and caraway seeds).

As for the rest of the story, XU won even though they couldn't make a 3-point shot. I was glad for a couple reasons; they were technically the home team (even though these universities are 3.4 miles apart), and all the UC fans around us were drunk messes. Not to be confused with hot messes.

I too knew it was weck. That server should be fired!
