“Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

That was once a popular mantra in the world of politics in our nation’s capital, but apparently Georgetown University is also taking that advice to heart.

With a predicted storm that could dump a foot to two feet of snow, the Hoyas are looking to market the crap out of their coming Big East matchups with Creighton and Providence.

Yes, the Hoyas marketing department is giving D.C.-area fans reason to hope for two feet of snow — because who doesn’t love half-off tickets to college basketball at the Verizon Center?

Never mind the dangerous amounts of snow that could bury the city, just make sure to get your cheaper tickets to a basketball game!
