West "by God" Virginia

After University of Pittsburgh coach Dave Wannstedt passes away and enters the Pearly Gates, God takes him on a tour. He shows Dave a little 2-bedroom house with a faded University of Pittsburgh banner hanging from the front porch. "This is your home, Coach. Most people don't get
their own house up here," God explains.

Dave looks at the house, then turns around and looks at the one sitting on the top of the hill. It's a huge 2-story mansion with white marble columns and little patios under all of the windows. West Virginia University Mountaineer flags line both sides of the sidewalk with a huge blue and gold banner hanging between the marble columns. "Thanks for the home, God, but let me ask you a question. How come I get this little 2-bedroom house
with a faded Pitt Banner, and Rich Rodriguez gets a mansion with new Mountaineer banners and flags flying all over the place? Why is that?"

God looks at him seriously for a moment and then replies,
"That's not Rich Rodriguez's' house. That's mine."

St. Peter is escorting a soul through heaven and is asked why there is a section that is walled-off. He replies: "Oh, that's where we put the West Virginians. Otherwise they try to go back home on the weekend."


Due to the climate of political correctness
now pervading America,
West Virginians will no longer be referred

You must now refer to us as APPALACHIAN-AMERICANS.

You might have a Hillbilly Computer if the Monitor is up on blocks


A ventriloquist was entertaining at a bar in Clarksburg. The audience was getting restless and irritated at his stupid hillbilly jokes when one gentleman stood up and said, "West Virginian's are not all stupid"

The ventriloquist began to apologize, but the man says, "You stay out of this mister, I'm talking to the mouthy little jerk on your knee!"


If the end of the world comes, I hope to be in West Virginia.

Everything happens 20 years later here!


A highly recruited high school football player was visiting schools to try and find the best college for him. His first stop was at Florida St.

When he got there, Bobby Bowden immediately picked up a golden telephone. After talking several minutes, he said, "Thank you, God" and hung up. This shocked the young man. He asked the
coach what was so special about the golden phone. "Well, this phone is a direct line to God. And God tells us whether or not new recruits would be stars at our university.

The athlete asked if he could use the phone to ask God what college he should pick "Sure, you can! But it's going to cost you $1,000. Calling Heaven ain't cheap."

The fellow didn't have that kind of money, so he moved along.

His next stop was Michigan. Upon entering Lloyd Carr's office, Coach Carr immediately picked up a golden telephone. After talking several minutes, he said, "Thank you, God" and hung up. The boy said, "Hey, I've seen those phones before. Can I use yours to call God and ask what college I should pick?" Lloyd said, "Sure, but it's going to cost you $750. Calling Heaven isn't cheap.." Again, not having that kind of money, the lad left.

His last stop was in Morgantown, WV. Upon arrival at the office, Coach Rich picked up a golden telephone, talked to God, and said, "Thanks," and hung up. The boy just had to use that phone, so he said, "Coach, I really need to use that golden telephone so I can call God and ask him which college I should choose. From Florida it was going to cost me $1000. From Michigan they wanted $750. So how much will it cost me to call Heaven from here in Morgantown?"

The coach smiled and said, "Nothing, son. It's a local call."

GO Mountaineers !!!!
