Game: Men’s Basketball vs. Holy Cross, 1/27/2010.
Colgate won 69–68.
Why did you attend this game? I wanted to visit my alma mater and bring my son to a basketball game.
What is your favorite sports memory at Colgate? The midnight ESPN men’s basketball game during my first year. We were defending Patriot League champions, and the place was packed. I wore a maroon wig with a basketball on top of it.
While at Colgate, did you have a favorite sport to watch? Golf [Joe was a member of the varsity golf team] … no, seriously, every sport was my favorite to watch. I have been to at least one home game/meet for every varsity team.
What was one of the craziest things you did at a sporting event? My brother, Ralph Leo ’99, and I drove six hours to watch our men’s basketball team play New Hampshire. We were the only Colgate students there and we were heckled throughout the game. That only made us cheer louder for the team!

Game: Women’s Basketball vs. Bucknell (A Patriot League game), 2/20/2010. Colgate won 62–58.
Do you have a favorite Colgate sports team? I am on the Cheer Team, so I get to go to a lot of different home and away games. I like supporting all of them.
What is your favorite Colgate sports moment? Our Men’s Basketball Patriot League semifinal game against Bucknell a couple of years ago. It was a “white out,” stands were filled up everywhere, everyone was screaming the whole two hours, and we won!
What do Colgate games mean to you? It is a way to connect with other people, represent your school, and show your school spirit. I love how everyone embraces each other in our love for this school.
What do you think about today’s game? I was jumping up and down so hard that my knees were hurting. The team stayed focused and worked so hard for that win.

Are you cold? I’m not at all … not yet.
Why are you at this game? This is the big ice hockey event! We came really early and we’re waiting for the teams to get on the ice.
Are you a big hockey fan? Of course — I go to Colgate.
What other sport do you enjoy watching? Volleyball! [no hesitation]
Favorite varsity player? I’ll go with #26 David McIntyre ’10 for men’s ice hockey, and I like all of the volleyball players.
Why did you choose to attend Colgate? It’s the best school in the world! I’m loving Colgate. I like the small-size classes, the professors… I have no complaints.
