AND THEN DEPRESSION SET IN…

In a desperate attempt to win a National Championship in a men’s sport other than one that was invented by the Europeans or the Canadian Indians (Native Canadians?), the University of Virginia announced today that it was starting a Men’s Field Hockey team, and petitioning the ACC to make it an official sport. “Shorts, sticks, what more do you want?” said Cav AD Craig Littlepage.

“We’re not doing so well either,” said NCSU AD Lee Fowler (no relation to Chris), “so we’re in too. I think Herb Sendek once said 'desperate times call for desperate measures' or something like that.”

In their first unofficial game, the two teams played one another since they are the only ACC schools with teams. They will play 10 home and home series prior to advancing to the two team tournament. The top two seeds will advance to the NCAA tournament.

Here some guy from NCSU gets ready to whack some guy from UVa all the while pretending to try and hit the ball.

Nice unis, we must admit.
