WVU Men's Basketball Beats Ohio State University!

The Most Popular Men in West Virginia? Pat White, Coach Huggins, Coach Stewart.
This was a very good Sunday for The Mountaineer Athletic Club. For the first time in a very long time, my family didn't attend the bowl game. I'm prepping for boards, and my Dad decided he'd rather use the air fare and hotel dollars for a large screen high definition TV set. Sad news - Suddenlink couldn't add the 'hi definition' until Monday so he went to my Uncle Barry's to watch the games. I ended my studying in time for the 4th quarter and l/2 the basketball game. Both were great victories.
After when we went out everywhere other people were talking about the win, the character as well as the ability of the players, the White family, and what wonderful Coaches we have. IT WAS A GREAT WEEKEND FOR ALL OF WEST VIRGINIA!
Note To Don Lemley, Please be thinking of more etched College Sports Glass.
Note: Ichiban103 Capitol StreetCharleston, WV 25301(304) 720-7874 has Blenko Glass water bottles on almost every table.
SOHO's has a Blenko Glass Vase as a Tip Jar ( I always look for BLENKO when I dine).

Merry BLENKO holidays to all and to all a Happy New Year!!!!

Well, I received a tangerine BLENKO waterbottle for Christmas. Did anyone else receive any BLENKO?

I also received ten vases, not all BLENKO but all hand-blown over the years in West Virginia. That should give me something to photograph!!!

Please tell if you were gifted WV glass.
