Anyone Have An Extra Basketball Ticket?

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Mountain State's Division I basketball programs have produced a sellout -- again.
For the 10th straight season, the Chesapeake Energy Capital Classic doubleheader between Marshall and West Virginia is a sellout at the Charleston Civic Center. The two schools have sold their ticket allotments for the twinbill next Wednesday night. THE TROPHY MADE BY BLENKO GLASS www.blenkoglass.com is the outstanding player at each of these games. This totally awesome beauty is a game stopper. You'll want to pay for a ticket just to view the trophy. Actually I love basketball, but only tickets in the nose bleed section were available so I won't be attending this year. This is the 2nd day of my NERB Exam - Then its rural rotation for 6 weeks. I'm depending on you all for photos and Blenko stories to keep the blog afloat. hjh

DID BLENKO MAKE THAT TROPHY? DO YOU HAVE PHOTOS OF THE MAKING?
DID OSBURN DO THIS?

With WVU and Marshall playing
a trophy would be the only item of interest or beauty. Both these teams are not considered great or near great, except perhaps to you Hilary.

These are more colorful when seen in person. It is my belief that Randy Rider and his crew did these after the departure of Mr. Osburn.
Correct me if this is wrong Dr Hilary.
Very nice of Chesapeake Coal and Bill Blenko.
