    Apparently nobody will show up for the WBB game tomorrow...

    ...says Bobby La Gesse: Go Cyclones - The unspoken concern

    There is a major problem the Iowa State women’s basketball team may have to contend with Wednesday.

    ...

    The television show “Lost” returns for its fifth season Wednesday night. That’s right; the Cyclones may lose out to a television show.

    ...

    The Cyclones are lucky my job requires me to be at the game. That will ensure one person is in attendance.
    The last sentence is the one that really bugged me.

    I submitted a comment to the story, but all comments are screened so we'll see if it gets posted. Basically, I said that ISU is averaging 9000 per game and got 10000 last year for a midweek game vs Colorado (closest thing to this midweek game vs Missouri), and even if those numbers are a few thousand higher than actual fans in the seats that's still a lot of people in the stands that supposedly will be staying home to watch Lost (and not using a DVR or VCR to record it instead).

    Just a guy excited for Lost to premiere... I read it as making fun of Lost fans more than WBB fans, and I love the show and the Cyclones.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    I think somebody is really overestimating people's addiction to that show... I don't know that many people that even watch it...

    I've never watched the show. And I don't know any of my friends that actually watch it, either.

    I think maybe the article was well-intentioned, but maybe he was writing it while short on sleep and it came out wrong.

    I love Lost, but I'll be watching the WBB game on Clone Zone and DVRing Lost to watch later (although we DVR pretty much everything anyway. It's amazing how much faster you can watch shows when you can skip commercials.)

    What was the attempt? Stupidity? Then yes, the article was well-intended.

    I don't think the Lost vs ISU WBB angle was a bad idea. I think implying Hilton would be empty and the only person at the game -- himself -- would only be there because he was forced to attend was really stupid.

    Also, read this sentence carefully (notice anything wrong?):

    The loyal Cyclone fans, the ones who make Hilton Coliseum one of the toughest venues to play in in women’s basketball, may be empty for the Big 12 tilt with Missouri.

    I try not to be empty when I attend games. It's much more pleasant if I'm full.

    That, and I try to not to duplicate words unnecessarily.

    Re: Apparently nobody will show up for the WBB game tomorrow...

    I became bored with Lost -- too little story movement, too much manipulation by ABC when the network advertised new episodes that proved to be compilations of previous episodes -- and haven't watched the show in maybe three years.

    Why wouldn't Twister Sisters fans tape Lost, go to the game, and watch the show a few hours after it airs? I don't get that.

    Lost is just gilligan's island meets x-files. Can't those crazy castaways get off that island?
