Attention Binghamton Fans: DO YOU KNOW PHIL?

Our date for the America East tournament quarterfinal has been set: it's none other than SUNY Binghamton - ugly step-sister to SUNY Buffalo, nerdy half-brother to SUNY Albany and SUNY Stony Brook. I know none of them go by "SUNY" anymore, but they used to and I happen to know that they hate that name and it's our job to antagonize them as much as possible during tournament time.

However, Binghamton served as a receptive host for our AE tourney exploits the last two years, and we shall do the same for them. Especially helpful last year was some guy named Phil, who took us under his wing after we met him at a bar downtown. Phil saw our BU shirts, asked where we were staying, and we told him the parking garage across the street. Phil showed us uncommon decency in offering us a place to stay, partying with us, and schooling us in foosball in his basement. We repaid him by leaving about 10 BU Basketball t-shirts at his house on our way out, which we were supposed to give out to BU fans at the tournament. But the High Roller and I never thought this was enough pay-back for Phil's generosity.

Binghamton fans, this is where you come in. If you know Phil, if you've seen him on the street or took a class with him, please tell him to come to Boston this weekend. We would be honored to have Phil as our special guest for this year's tourney, if only we knew how to ask him. I'd say Phil was about 5'11", short blond hair, glasses, and a little husky but not fat (I'm not sure how accurate that is. Perhaps the High Roller can give a better description, as I only met Phil after half a bottle of SoCo and a sixer of Central NY's finest: the repulsive Genny Cream Ale).

So Binghamton Bearcat fans, I ask you: Do you know Phil?

Another bit of information that might help you Bearcats identify him: He lived in a pretty nice house with a few friends on the steepest god-damn hill I've ever come across. We're talking 70 degrees, maybe more.

You do realize that 70 degrees is nearly vertical, straight up and down, right? Just checking...
