Why I Hate The Depaul Game
« on: January 27, 2023, 11:37:43 AM »
If MU beats Depaul by a million, no one cares.

If they lose, eternal shame.

So, this game stresses me more than playing at Uconn or X.

You asked if I was in the meth business or the money business.  Neither.  I'm in the empire business.

Also the Wintrust tends to run out of beer when Marquette is in the house for some reason.

Eternal shame?

I love that on the Twitter thread where DePaul announced a sell out there was an MU fan admonishing them for poor concessions and the DePaul account actually engaged.

But seriously remember to get your buzz on beforehand because those concessions are piss poor, super slow, not enough, and bad at pouring beer.

MU has lost three of its last five to DePaul and is 2-3 all time at Wintrust.

A few years ago they lost pressure in the beer lines at all of the concession stands. I'd love to hear a rundown of what exactly the problem is from whomever is in charge of that situation. If Murphy's can figure it out, people running a literal stadium should be able to figure it out.

Curious how a literal stadium differs from one that isn’t?

If I remember last year, it was the credit card connection in a cashless arena. That's especially impressive when your sponsor is a bank. 

I tried to pay in cash but got "that's not allowed sir".  I said it's legal tender and it's illegal to not accept it. Forced Dry February.

Got up to get a beer with 5 min left in halftime. Didn't get back to my seat till 11min left in the game. Similar thing happened during our TBT run in 2020.

That stadium is a crap show with a nice exterior.

Anyone remember the last time it was on a Saturday the game had already started and was well underway while fans were still attempting to enter because they didn't know how to funnel people in at a fast rate.

I don't like beer, I love it and it loves me unlike my relationship with whiskey which is at best me getting abused by it.

Those relationships don't change much over time. Would say I have nearly 40 years of similar relationships with beer and bourbon. I still try and even close the gap with bourbon, but it seems that I am not gaining much ground.

As much as I enjoy beer, I would never miss a half of Marquette basketball for the right to pay ridiculous prices for crap beer, but I'm crazy that way. We're going to 2 games in February; we'll support local establishments before and after the game.

As for the O.P. and "nobody caring" if we beat DePaul ... I think most of us here care.

I don't care that people who don't care about Marquette basketball won't care after we crush DePaul tomorrow. And ESPN's crawl will still show our score -- with a #16 next to our name -- a couple dozen times an hour, too.

This!!!
I won’t go to MU/DU anymore. It a no win situation. We beat up on crappy DU or the unfathomable happens.

The other day on WGN they were making a big deal because it’s DU’s 100 anniversary or some bs….mentioned the sell out hoops game vs MU. Gosh I hope we stomp them, hold them in 30’s and hang 80 plus on them…..

RING OUT AHOYA!!!

Being friends with several DePaul STHs I don't hate the game as much as I dread it. I hear about a loss all year long.

Reggies exists for a reason. I mean, and their wings. And some good local band shows too.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Probably doing skylark or pleasant house beforehand. Frontier after.

I talked Reggie's wings up way too much to my wife, she expected points east, she got some good sauces.
