BBR Podcast 25: A10 Week Part #1

Another four man weave puts a cherry on the regular season

The BBR boys, once again, welcome on Michael Purves; easily the most frequently occurring guest in the shows storied history.

The gang chats about the historic run through the season, how it’s over, and what lies ahead. Horrors of the A10 tournaments of the past are relived. Why? No one knows.

Each representative selects a team (besides Dayton) that could possibly cut down the nets in Brooklyn before trivia closes down the show. KT plugs the history of the Arch Baron Cup rivalry.  Purves reminds everyone how special this year has been to the city of Dayton.

Our sponsors are proud of you for listening

Wear red, be #LOWD

    The A10 tourney was much better when at Boardwalk Hall in AC. At least I could drown my sorrow at the Texas Hold em table at Trump Tower and it usually paid for my weekend. One particularly egregious ending of our Flyer’s hope was in 2010 when UD shit the bed by giving up a 15 pt lead against fucking Xavier. Down two with 33 seconds left, Rob Lowery calls time out and gets tangled up with Terrell fucking Holloway and gets T’d up. There were so many fouls that game that Harvey Weinstein was embarrassed. But this led to BG’s shining moment with a NIT run that culminated in the only Flyers hoop game played in the month of April. Oh, and the Jacksonville Jet managed to celebrate his trip to the big city by having his wallet pinched by one of NYC’s finest ladies of the evening. Imagine the conversation he had to have with BG to tell him he didn’t have his ID to board the flight home. Man, we’ve come a long way in 10 years….

      Agreed, I would love to have it move back to AC. 2010 was truly a magical season.

    I am still of the opinion that the A10 tourney was better at Boardwalk Hall in AC. Besides the fact that you could walk around the corner and get a cheesesteak or sub that put Milano’s to shame, there was always the option of drowning my sorrow after the annual Flyers exit at the Texas Hold Em table next door at the Trump Tower. At least it would help offset the costs of the weekend. And it was there that the most forgettable game that Dayton ever played in the A10 tourney occurred in 2010. After shitting down their leg and blowing a 15 point lead to fucking Xavier, fucking Rob Lowery went down in Flyers lore for letting the Overlords get in his head. Down two points with 33 seconds left, Lowery called time out because he thought fucking BG had something useful to say at the time. As Lowery was going to the bench, he got “tangled up” with fucking Terrell Holloway and got T’d up! There were so many fouls called in that game that Harvey Weinstein was embarrassed. Needless to say, the Overlords made both freebies and crushed my dream that we would ever beat them in the tourney. There was a silver lining though as BG got his shining moment in the NiT run which culminated in the only game that the Flyers have ever played in the month of April. Which then led the Jacksonville Jet to promptly get his wallet pinched by one on NYCs finest ladies of the evening. Imagine the conversation that the Jet had to have with BG explaining how he lost his ID and was not able to board the flight home…… damn, we’ve come a long way in 10 short years…
