The basketball team plays its second game of the season tonight at Comcast Center against the Penguins of Youngstown State. Terrapins Insider has the scoop, as usual, and it looks like Youngstown State is in a transitional state rivaled only by the city for which it is named.
Last year, the team finished 9-21. This year, they have seven new guys. I can’t figure out if that’s a good thing or a bad thing for the Penguins. If you add seven new guys to a crappy team, is that like clearing out the dead wood and bringing in fresh blood, or is it just digging them a deeper hole? In this case, I’m going with the latter.
But regardless, one thing is for certain. You have to fear the Penguins. If you turn your back on them, for just a second, they will waddle right over you. And not the cute kind of waddling either. Remorseless, merciless waddling. Cold-blooded, R-rated waddling. You may even get some fish spit-up on you. Vasquez: do not taunt the penguins. They will kill you.
