    Default Cash Cab

    Ok, don't hate me for starting a non-sport related thread but...

    Ben Bailey, the host of Cash Cab on the Discovery Channel (if you haven't seen it, it's addicting) went to Old Dominion and gave us an awesome shout out on an episode I just watched. The question was something to do with the "Old Dominion" state and the people said Maryland so Ben Bailey said something along the lines of "No, close though, it's Virginia (stared at camera) where I attended Old Dominion University. Hi everyone at ODU."

    Completely off topic, but an fun little shout-out.
    Old Dominion, HAIL!
