While I can’t prove that I actually “bleed” orange, I can prove that I represent my school in almost everything I wear and everything I do. As a 2006 Syracuse graduate, I was a freshman for the Carmelo-led 2003 NCAA title season and a senior when Gerry McNamara went from “overrated” to Big East Tournament hero. Since my first year as an undergrad in Lawrinson Hall, I’ve accumulated a pretty extensive collection of SU-related gear.
I decided to take a picture of each Syracuse item I own – all in all there are 73. Before the Great Hoboken Flood of 2012 (Hurricane Sandy), I had well over 100 pieces, but the Hudson River washed away things like Christmas tree ornaments, sports gear and my yearbook. Sad. Still, for someone living in an 800-square-foot apartment, I think I’ve done pretty well.
If you’ve got me beat (doesn’t just have to be SU), hit us up and let us know. We’d love to display your collection on College Spun as well. Yup, that’s a challenge.
