Chris Crowley, George Mason Patriots, VCU Pav, VCU Senior Night
First, let’s lead off with a pretty cool video. VCU fan Chris Crowley sang the National Anthem last night and asked the Siegel Center crowd to sing along with him. By the end, Crowley lowers his mic as the crowd sings in unison. It was a night of “family”. VCU hosted its annual Alumni Day, where scores of former players like Calvin Duncan, Kendrick Warren, Joey Rodriguez, Gerald Henderson, Bradford Burgess and others returned to celebrate the VCU Basketball fraternity. It was also Senior Night, where the Rams paid tribute to Briante Weber, Treveon Graham and Jarred Guest. The whole game felt like an evening with friends.

Chris Crowley, Saint Louis Billikens, Valentine's Day, Will Weaver Photography
First and foremost, the task at hand. Saint Louis looms Saturday at 2 p.m. It’s a huge game on a huge network (regular ESPN), with huge announcers (Bob Knight – who doesn’t really know who VCU is, but whatever), with huge implications. (INSERTING CLICHE…) This is what college basketball is all about. I’m on the road with women’s hoops on a D.C. to Rhode Island jaunt interrupted by snowstorm Skippy, or whatever they’re calling this one. Anyway, Seth Greenberg took a minute to preview Saturday’s tilt, and District Baller took a few minutes to YouTube it, so you should take a few minutes and watch.
It’s also Valentine’s Day, and I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the love-fest that is VCU. That was probably never more apparent Wednesday, when you guys mushed and snowshoed your way to pack The Stu tighter than the ski lodge right after the final run of the day.
So let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day, VCU style. The good thing is we have great fans here who love photography and love Photoshop. So, here are some VCU-themed Valentine’s brought to you by Chris “Pavarotti” Crowley, who might as well work for this blog with how much content he generates, and a few great photos by Will Weaver.
