Hoyas Fans Sleep Out For Tickets
Got an e-mail last night from Local Poll voter Robert Lintott who, though he is decidedly not a Georgetown fan, recognizes a Bog story when he sees one. Turns out Robert is friends with Local Poll voter Paul Campbell, who is, in fact, a Georgetown fan and who was in the process of sleeping outside McDonough Gymnasium for student tickets to the Big East Tournament, which were to be distributed at 10 this morning . . . . There were about 65 students, and a sign that said Thompson Town, and tents, and intermittent pizza delivery, and a handful of students who were..."I'm not sure the euphemism I want to use...'enjoying the college experience,' so to speak," Paul told me, although he assured me that anyone who might have enjoyed an adult beverage was strictly of legal drinking age. . . . And the highlight came at 9 this morning, when John Thompson III arrived for work. He asked the students if they were camping out for Pitt tickets. They explained that they were waiting for Big East tourney tix. "Are we in that yet?" he asked. Talk about staying on message.
