Ok, so let me say first we in the Zoo are not exclusively basketball fans. This saturday Coach Wannstedt has invited us to meet him and watch practice at the Southside Facility. Last year the turn out was not great. People who did not go missed a great experience. You get a tour of the new facilities which are amazing. They have a ton of Pitt sports history stuff and a great exhibit featuring all the former Pitt players who won awards and are currently in the NFL.
To further tempt you to come there will be free lunch for everyone that comes and there will be a raffle for season tickets.
I’m gonna put this out there for you folks, the last two seasons of Pitt football were not what we wanted them to be. This year’s team has a ton of talent coming in but some question marks since we’re losing 3 great players in Palko, Blades, and Revis. It is imperative that we show our support for our football team and make sure that the 2007 season is a success.
Below is the email that was sent out by the athletics dept. with all of the details. If you have any questions feel free to email us or check out our facebook page.
