When Worlds Collide

Howard University versus Georgetown University in Washington DC’s newest rivalry is tomorrow at 1400 EST on the campus of the Hoyas. Talk about two schools that are totally keeping it real, neither one of the bourgeoisie, exclusive schools has a player on its roster from a secondary school within the District. This is the second year in a row, and second meeting ever, that the two schools will play football in what has been billed as “The DC Cup.” Howard University lost last year, and my guess is that they will likely do it again. I haven’t decided if I want to go to the game, though. It could be fun because it is at Georgetown. There will probably be a lot to see because it is also Georgetown’s homecoming game.

This is actually reminding me that we should probably change the name of this DC Cup thing to the Bourgeoisie Bowl.  Both of these universities have more in common than they care to admit.  Both schools are insanely snobbish and completely full of themselves.  Both schools are bona fide institutions existing within the confines of the District of Columbia for what seems like forever.  Howard University was founded in 1867 and Georgetown was established in 1789.  The Hoyas have been playing football since 1887, and the Bison have been balling on the gridiron since 1893.  I think that the two schools are a great mix right now in 2009.  Neither school is that impressive at football, although at least Georgetown can brag about their basketball program.  Howard brags about the fact that they have a unique social atmosphere.

I’ll keep you posted on this.  The ideas are supercharged in my head but I still don’t know how it will play out.  Check me…
