Gone are the glory days of the Gonzalez regime, but the Jaspers can still be fun to watch. Even though the BoogieDowner bleeds Fordham Maroon (quite literally it turns out), we can still sleep at night and plug a Manhattan hoops season opening event. You know, they play in the rag-tag MAAC, and the Rams play in the RPI rich A-10. I'm just saying, it's okay if we hype the JV squad sometimes.
In any case if you are looking for something to do this weekend and are in or near Riverdale, head over to Draddy Gym for Manhattan Madness. Check below for details.
"The Manhattan College Office of Student Development will host its annual Manhattan Madness on Saturday at Draddy Gymnasium surrounding the men?s and women?s basketball exhibition doubleheader. The action packed event will consist of several contests and give-aways, including a spirit competition, dash-for-cash and t-shirt toss. All students are encouraged join in a fun-filled evening and show support for the Manhattan basketball programs as they gear up for the 2008-09 season.
The Lady Jaspers contest with Saint Rose College will tip at 4:30 p.m., and the Manhattan men follow at 7:30 p.m. versus Baruch College. The Manhattan College cheer team, dance team and band will perform throughout the event."
