Worth every penny

In 1626, Dutch settler Peter Minuit purchased the island of Manhattan from its native inhabitants for $24 worth of beads and trinkets. Last night, for a grand total of about $86, the High Roller and I witnessed the dismantling of the college of Manhattan and then traveled to the actual island of Manhattan to celebrate that dismantling at the hands of our Terriers. In this case, the beads we received came in the form of the free tickets we were given by the lovely ladies in the Manhattan admission booth since we arrived so close to half time, and the trinkets we got were the tall-boys of PBR at Doc Holliday's in Manhattan's East Village.

Now that I think about it, this analogy makes less and less sense (were we the Indians or the Dutch?). Either way, last night's win was exciting and refreshing, especially after the debacle against NU.

Corey Lowe blew up for 28 points, and tied the school record for number of three-pointers in game with 7 (originally set by Matt Turner). Tyler Morris had another solid 15-point effort (he has never scored in single-digits during his young college career).

Add all that to the fact that we did not get mugged during our trip, we were able to find a parking spot relatively easily in Manhattan, and we got to hang out in a bar where they let a dog walk around on top of the bar - it was a great night in the Big Apple.
