ICurves & smiles & football &
Several years ago, when my place of residence was Markley Hall,
I was accused by a guy across the corridor of being the only chauvinist
West Virginian he'd ever heard of.
Now that's ridiculous. I mean, how can anyone brag about a
state where a major city is one whose population has more than
three digits, and a major highway is a two-lane job with curves
Racquel Welch never heard of?
But I managed. My freshman comrades were inundated with
outlandish facts and figures about my beloved Mountain State
(Did you know that the 1924 Democratic presidential candidate,
whose nomination took 104 ballots, was born in Clarksburg
West Virginia?), and various roommates through the succeeding
years have had to put up with similar insipid information.
There was only one hangup: Every time I came forth with
my priceless bits of data, my listener would respond with a small,
sickeningly tolerant smile.
Well, I've been patient. And my patience has finally been re-
warded . .. through the good graces of the Fighting Falcons of Fair-y
FairmontState College, located in a West Virginia town 30 miles
from my home, boasts an enrollment of perhaps 5000 students-in-
cluding parttimers, night students, and assorted hangers-on. As a
member of the West Virginia Intrastate Athletic Conference
(WVIAC), FSC also belong to the National Association of Inter-
collegiate Athletics (NAIA), which contains a majority of the schools
not classified as "major colleges and universities" by the NCAA.
Okay. There are the initials. Now for the bragging:
1) Last year's Falcon football squad finished first in the
NAIA, beating out Northern Michigan in the semifinal round of
the playoffs, and then defeating Eastern Washington 28-21 in the
championship game before a capacity crowd of 35,000 in Morgan-
town, West Virginia.
2) Last year's Falcon basketball squad finished second in
the NAIA, losing out by three points in the championship game.
3) Last year's Falcon wrestling and baseball squads finished
tops in the WVIAC, then placed very high in their respective
NAIA playoffs. (Their exact positions are still being debated
among the hills of West Virginia.)
Now, I think that's amazing. And I was so impressed by all this
that I talked to the Fairmont State sports information director,
E. N.. Straight, who provided me with the biggest surprise of all:
4) Fairmont' State College does not give out athletic
How about that? Here we sit, in a so-called sports powerhouse
which annually grinds out dozen of athletic tenders, and we feel
extremely proud and fortunate if just one of our major teams wins
the conference, let alone any kind of national title. And little Fair-
mont State, which promises its athletes nothing but good conditioning
and strong competition, grinds out title after title. (They've been
strong for years in football and basketball.)
I'm done bragging now .,.. but I think there's some kind of
lesson to be learned here ....
If only I could figure out some way to wipe that small, sicken-
ingly tolerant smile off your face.
