Fun with Yucky Chucky: Get ready for another letdown season!


When we last left Cheap Suit Chucky, he was saying that the Stewart’s were not his sources. Baloney!

What is our favorite yellow-teeth havin, cheap-suit wearin columnist up to this week? Well, he’s attempting to get Marshall fans pumped up for the upcoming FOOTBAW season!

Chuck Landon: Herd fans planning early for ’11 season

The excitement is already building.
Actually, that’s just gas building up, Chucky.

Marshall’s preseason football camp doesn’t open until Aug. 5.

It is still 47 days away.

Yet, plans for watching away games already are under way. Besides the eight — and counting — televised games that have been announced for the 2011 season, there are additional plans.
Such as what, goin to the Butt Bowl?

Take the much anticipated season opener between arch-rivals Marshall and West Virginia University at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 4 in Morgantown, for example.

The Friends of Coal Bowl — or should it be renamed the “Beer Bowl” this year? — is always a huge event whether it’s played in Edwards Stadium or Yuengling, err, I mean Mountaineer Field.
Wow, Chucky, you are truly a putz… first you call it the “Beer Bowl”… then you call it “Yuengling Field?” Wow, Chucky, you are an idiot! But, I do hope they sell Yuengling at Mountaineer Field. Mmm… Yuengling!

But add controversial first-year, first-game, first-time WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen to the mix and it becomes a must-see event.
Controversial only because you tried to be a big part of it, you mullet-wearing ass.

And, yes, a lot of people will be watching.

Besides an expected capacity crowd of 60,180, the game will also be televised nationally by ESPN. Since it is a Sunday telecast on a holiday weekend, the viewing audience is expected to be significant.
And, since it’ll be the only game on TV at that time, too!

But, what if Marshall fans don’t want to make the trip to Morgantown and risk the shabby treatment that has become the norm up there? And, what if Herd fans do want to be part of a festive, gameday atmosphere rather than watching the game in the docile environment of their own home?
Shabby treatment!? Dude, I’ve seen your people try to start shit with WVU fans. They bring it upon themselves, but, yes, we don’t want the Herdies coming to Morgantown. They’re just gunna leave grease spots everywhere, as well as a horrid stench afterwards.

Well, Marshall fans, there’s going to be a very viable option.

It’s called the “Big Screen Backyard Brawl.”
WTF!? Dude, Backyard Brawl is reserved for arch-rivals WVU and Pitt! Not WVU-Moo U.

Fans will be able to watch the Marshall-WVU game at Harris Riverfront Park on a back-lighted, high-definition television screen measuring nearly 300 square feet in an event sponsored by Kindred Communications.
Yes, Marshall fans, PLEASE STAY THERE!!!

This is a sequel to the highly successful Marshall-Ohio State game from the 2010 season, which drew a crowd of 4,000 under similar conditions.

But this season? Against this opponent? Under these circumstances?
Yes, please stay in Huntington, KY!

Well, that MU-Ohio State attendance easily could be surpassed.

Just as last year, the event will be free to the public. Gates to Harris Riverfront Park will open at 2 p.m. There will be live music along with additional entertainment, as well as food and beverage vendors.

Basically, it is the perfect tailgate party for Marshall fans who don’t want to go to Morgantown.
And, who should probably stay out of Morgantown. We don’t need you Huntington Fat Humps up

Then, there’s Marshall’s other rivalry game.

“The Battle for the Bell” will be fought once again between nearby rivals Marshall and Ohio University. This edition will occur on Sept. 17 in Peden Stadium at Athens, Ohio. According to the Bobcats’ athletic web site, kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
This is Marshall’s REAL rival… not WVU. An Ohio school vs. a Kentucky school… perfect!

So, there you have it, Herd fans. Two road games versus rivals and two outstanding ways to watch both contests.
