Morgantown Clears The Decks

The Virginian-Pilot informs that, with Virginia Tech headed to town fire officials have ordered residents to remove furniture and other flammable objects from their porches.

Morgantown Fire Chief Dave Fetty said:
The reason for the order is based upon statistical fire data gathered following major rival football games or other sporting events.
In other words, the WVU kids like to go a little pyro-crazy. When they win, they set couches on fire. When they lose, they set couches on fire. Thankfully, the town will now force drunken WVU students to actually carry their furniture out from inside before setting fire to it.

What a relief.

I wonder how many couches are burned on a typical night after we visit there.

I'm leaving right after the game so I won't be there to find out.

Jeesh, Heidi, why don't you delete the versions of your blog that no longer exist?

All I can say is that every time someone waxes poetic about our young people, their idealism, environmentalism, and their educational standards, I wonder if that person has ever visited places like WVU after a football game.
