If you live relatively close and/or aren’t afraid of a mere super snow storm then I’m happy to offer up 5 pairs of tickets to Saturday’s game at the Verizon Center courtesy of DC Lottery. I have to send over your names by noon on Friday. So leave a comment if you wanna go to the game and I’ll announce the winners by 11am in order to have your names emailed to me by noon. And I’ve been told that Villanova is getting to DC early Friday so no matter how much snow comes down the game is on. Thanks again to DC Lottery for providing the tickets.

  • Sam

    Yes PoP! I’m in! I’m in!

  • John Nielands

    I’d love to go! Please put me in!

  • Me! I need a reason to return to downtown DC after gentrification pushed me out to the burbs. Prince I always thought you is a wise guy, gimme one thanks.

  • Amber

    Bring it.

  • BNW

    Pick me! Pick me!

  • PTRQ

    Yes!, it would be great to see Nova destroy the Hoyas. Not that I’m a Nova fan, but they’re obviously a much, much better team, plus it’s always great to see Georgetown suffer.

  • George B

    YES! I would love to catch a Georgetown game rite about now with all the work i have to take care of tomorrow because of the weekend storm.


  • Justin

    Would love to go! The snow won’t scare me away!

  • MVT

    i would like to go please.

  • Joe

    OMG I LOVE VILLANOVA. please, i’d love an excuse to not go to work

  • Patrick

    Wooo! I’m in walking distance, and need to go! I still resent Villanova’s 1985 upset in the national championship. I was born just days after it and my mother, in defiance, named me after Patrick Ewing. Or at least that’s what she’d tell me. Bleed Hoya Blue!

  • Chris R

    I would love to go to a game!


  • Nick

  • James

    I can walk there!

  • Vernados

    Ohhh yes. I need these tickets for a number reasons:

    I’m a Pitt grad and love Pitt basketball.
    I’m from Philadelphia.
    I share the surname of a certain Nova player.
    Despite this fact, he is arguably my least favorite college player of all time.
    I want to watch Villanova lose this game.
    I will therefore be a huge GTown fan for a day.

  • M

    count me in – bf is a huge fan and getting tickets would be a great ending to an otherwise crappy week.

    OK Here are the winners you each get two tickets to the game. I did it very arbitrarily so as not to be accused of having favorites I picked every 10th entry.

    Patrick @ 11:23pm

    Megan @ 7:35am

    Robert Oriole @ 8:45am
