“That good old song of Wah-hoo-wah—
we’ll sing it o’er and o’er
It cheers our hearts and warms our blood
to hear them shout and roar
We come from old Virginia,
where all is bright and gay
Let’s all join hands and give a yell
for dear old U.Va.
Wah-hoo-wah, wah-hoo-wah! Uni-V, Virginia!
Hoo-rah-ray, hoo-rah-ray, ray, ray—U-Va!”
We couldn’t be more honored to give our second GULPER of the week to the George Clooney of Basketball—Coach Tony Bennett. What an amazing season here in hoo’ville for the UVA Men’s Basketball team. Joe Harris and Akil Mithcell certainly took it to the house against cuse’, all made possible by the encouraging voice of Coach TB.
With season tickets to the games, the gulpers witnessed TB at his finest, up close & personal. Game after game, the stadium was packed with avid Wahoos who just couldn’t get enough of this stellar season, made possible by coach TB. Bennett not only enabled individual player stardom, but he created a basketball team that echoed the true meaning of what team-work actually is.
On Monday evening, we attended coaches corner at Wild Wing’s Cafe where TB shared his insight on the past season, and strategies for defeating the winner of the Maryland vs. Florida State game this upcoming Friday. We ripped into some hot-spicy-wings dunked in blue cheese, as we listened to the coach who led our Virginia men’s basketball team to its first outright ACC regular season title since 1981.
Monday evening ended in a slam dunk with TB’s autograph and a GULPER duo picture! Thanks Coach Bennett for the truly amazing season and for being easy on the eyes;) Go Hoos!
A dunk of GULPS dribblin’ your way!
