12:00 pm
Beef O'Bradys
2819 MacDill Avenue South

This weeks game against Virginia Tech is a big one.  The Mountaineers
have beaten the Hokies the past few years but the experts have the
Mountaineers as 2 point underdogs.  The game is in Blacksburg Virginia
and many outside Morgantown are not convinced the Mountaineers are
deserving of our current #6 National Ranking.  Let's hope we prove them
all wrong.  The Gators and Seminoles also play at noon so I expect the
restaurant to be very crowded.  To secure a good seat you better show up
early! If you have questions or need directions, call Jeff Fenske at
(813) 601-5837.  Let me know if you plan on coming to Beef's so I can
let them know what to expect for a turnout.
