Kevin Pittsnogle - Mountaineer

Pittsnogle Fever

Pittsnogle, oddly euphonious. Pittsnogle, can you say it without giggling?

Pittsnogle, how many different ways you can use it a sentence?

Pittsnogle, what comes to mind? colorful tattoos? an uneven haircut? a scruffy goatee? a married collegian? a 6-foot-11 junior forward who does not like to play under the basket? a West Virginia player actually from West Virginia?

Have you been Pittsnogled yet?

March Madness. What fun.

Is B.C. history?

You Say Tomato And I Say…Tomahto

Whether the tomato is fruit or vegetable is almost like the story of which came first, the chicken or the egg.

Now a new debate - should classroom instructors change B.C. to B.C.E. for Before Common Era and A.D. to C.E., for Common Era?

Just maybe Ira had it right, “Let's call the whole thing off.”
