Syracuse University Basketball Fan

Lots of buzz about the Number 1 ranked Syracuse University Orange Men’s Basketball team this year. The fans in the Carrier Dome are even crazier than normal.  Remember the young fan I showed you a couple of years ago?  Last weekend I attended the Big East game between the Syracuse Orange and the Marquette Golden Eagles and ran into a slightly older fan who allowed me to photograph him.

The Orange went on to win 73-66 (Sorry, Kathy!) thanks to the support of over 25,000 fans many wearing orange clothing though not many with orange wigs.

    I’m thinking Otto has a lot in common with the mummers in the Mardi Gras parades. That wig looks like Cheese Curls. Between that and the beer I’m hungry.

    All those different surfaces, some reflective, some, well, Cheese Curls – nice job getting all of it to come together like that.

    Nope, not just for yesterday. Yes, this is indeed the infamous Dome Eddie. His real name is Ed Orlick.
