Interesting Xavier-Charlotte mistake

I was surfing the internet and came upon the Charlotte chapter of the Xavier Alumni website. They were putting together some festivities for the Charlotte game for their alumni in the area, and I noticed an error on their website.

Take a look for yourself: [URL]http://xu.imodules.com/s/454/news_events.aspx?sid=454&gid=1&pgid=658&cid=2494&ecid=2494&ciid=11368&crid=0[/URL]

I sent her a gentle e-mail about the official name change of the athletics program, and here was her response…

[I]Thank you for letting me know. I even attend UNC-Charlotte and I wasn’t aware that there was a difference…you can tell my loyalty lies with my undergrad institution…lol! Will you be attending the game or pre-game party?

[/I] Heh. Just an interesting little story I thought I’d share.

At least she responded- and politely at that. Doubt a Cinci grad would have done that

:lmao: the funniest part is that she even replied with the hyphen…

It’s more sad than funny. Even worse, is that she attends Charlotte now…

No evidentally, she attends “UNC-Charlotte”. Now I have lived here most of my life and I don’t seem to know where such a place is.

[B]Hey Dr. Phil! Are you reading this? She goes to the freaking school and doesn’t even know the name. Get it taken care of… NOW! I’m sick of this crap.[/B]

Make sure this gets placed in the Name Confusion thread. Our own students don’t know the name of the school. :lmao:

pathetic

To be fair, she did only do her graduate studies at Charlotte. She probably didnt pay any attention to our basketball program. Our names are confusing as hell, and I dont blame anyone who screws it up. Even our own students.

I guess we won’t see too many Muskateers in Halton.

Who’d want to go to play against a school that poked you anyways?

Wow, Paul Buck Boulevard was the address of the now-imploded Charlotte Coliseum off of Tyvola Road! Geez!!! :rolleyes:
