There's no doubt about who "New York's College Team" was this weekend

It started on Friday night when I found it pleasant to root for the basketball Orange over the boys in Baby Blue from North Carolina after work in Madison Square Garden. I was supporting the Big East over the ACC as I joined in the "Let's Go Orange" chants with the vast majority of the crowd there at the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic final. And I was sure the Orange were going to lose to the Scarlet in the sport that I really cared about the next day.
Even when I climbed into the car and turned on 710 WOR to listen to the game after the Orange were already up by two touchdowns yesterday afternoon, I wasn't really worried about the final results. Wasn't it the third year in a row that Rutgers had spotted Syracuse 14 points to start the game? Wasn't Syracuse making it a habit of losing heartbreakers in 2009? And didn't Joe Lefeged block a punt a minute after I turned on the radio as an omen of Rutgers' inevitable comeback?
I guess now we're going to have to change that strategy of giving away the first two touchdowns whenever we see orange. I guess now I'm going to have to stop rooting for Syracuse in any sport, because now the war for New York City is officially on, and Syracuse won a major battle this weekend.
