[QUOTE=TheGuru;8180025]If not for the all day City/Poly tailgate and the accompanying huge rivalry game, I'd be at Loyola to cheer on the Dons as they put McDonogh's miserable 2012 season to a pitiful end. It's true that McDonogh has been a thorn in CHC's side but my wish for an Eagles loss is solely based on the possibility that the whirlwind bromance between Greyhound Alum & EaglesInsider will be quashed until it regrettably reignites next August with GA proclaiming Gilman's historic rival, "The Second Best in all the Land."
Game wasn't even close, I guess that puts Loyola's miserable 2012 season to a pitiful end. I guess you'll have to live with Eagle and GA for at least another week.
