Blue-White Roguetable: Indiana

penn state

What a surprise, Penn State opens B1G play on the road?

What better way to battle the Bucco Blues than answering some football questions. I have no doubt the Pirates will come back and house the Cardinals, and I am equally certain that you’ll enjoy this week’s installment of the roundtable.

Yet again, we decided to give our boy Adam a rest and turn this into the Blue-White Rouge-table. Despite our coup, make sure to hit up Black Shoe Diaries for their usual Friday recap. Also, take a gander what these peeps think about my questions.

Drinking Game: Indiana 2012

lost weekend

Holding! On the drinker. 15 sips from the spot of the foul!

If people wonder why we drink, they need look no further than the boys in the stripes last week.

This week we will drink because it’s fun and because all the help in the world won’t mean a lick to the outmatched Hoosiers.

Blue-White Roundtable: Eerie, Indiana Edition

l

The Roundtable was originally going to be posted yesterday, but it was HELD up by the Big Ten refs. Surely, if Penn State players so much as looked at this post, I’d be typing 15 yards behind my computer.

Someone who we never has to worry about the refs, Adam from Black Shoe Diaries has some more questions this week. Be sure to head on over to BSD later this week for a “greatest hits” of sorts. In the meantime, check out what these peeps are saying:

PSU-Indiana Drinking Game

lost weekend

1’s too many and 100’s not enough

If you’re headed to the boring state of Indiana to watch JoePa do his best Tony LaRussa bullpen impersonation, then, well, you might need a drink.

After a week to warm up, let’s come out firing for the Big Ten opener! Also, please feel free to suggest additional drinks as the game goes on.

Blue-White Roundtable: Conference Opener Edition

Well, the tune-up games are over. Sort of. Perhaps knowing that Coach Paterno was afraid to make a tough quarterback decision, the Big Ten suits gave us a softball to kick off conference play. Someone who never tosses softballs is our buddy Adam from Black Shoe Diaries. As always, he churned out some questions, so be sure to hit up BSD later this week for a “greatest hits” of sorts.

Should We Root For Indiana?

indiana
Upon our introduction to sports, we all start out as innocent optimists.  The games are something new to us and, like sponges we soak up as much as we can to quench our newfound thirst.  We play sports with our friends in backyards after school.  We sweat, we bleed, but it’s all for fun.  Then, at some point, the games we follow begin to take on new meaning.  As we age, cynicism creeps in as our innocence wanes.
