Road Trippin’ With the Dayton Flyers: Fairfax

Hey, Gang!  The 2017-2018 is in full-swing, and while we are all familiar with the raucous confines of The Sweater Centre; many Flyer Fanatics will cheer on UD on the road.  Whether you plan on checking out the mid-major action in Charleston, Pittsburgh or St. Louis, we’ve got you covered!  The 2017-18 Blackburn Review Travel Companion is your guide to the best and worst destinations for this year’s road slate.

Fairfax, VA

February 14th

(Editor’s Note: TRex has caught that killer flu — I had it back in December, it’s the worstest. Anyway, I’m just gonna paste some of the snarky things said about Fairfax/GMU in our group DM sesh.)

  • “Fairfax Co is the defense contractor capital of the world.”
  • “George Mason, like George Washington, is located in an area where every middle manager would have you believe the federal government would grind to a halt without them.”
  • “George Mason is known as an MBA factory for the ‘talent’ in DC that live under crushing debt trying to keep up with their better educated co-workers and neighbors.”
  • “Fairfax is Asian as fuck, that’s all I remember about it.”
  • “Arlington has a shitload of Asian gangs.”
  • “I met a couple hot GMU grads after an A10 tourney game in 2015. My buddy got pissed because I was showing them pictures of my kid and he was trying to go home with them. He was a newlywed at the time.”
