Roger "Big Cat" Soccorsi

http://obituaries.timeswv.com/story/r ... corsi-1953-2016-851534612

He started attending WVU Football games in 1963 as a young boy selling hot dogs and programs just to get inside the stadium. He attended 383 games and over 20 bowl games. He started wearing his trademark Gold Hard Hat in 1969. It is covered with WVU decals and a collection of buttons from various Mountaineer Bowl games. He was a lifelong member of the Mountaineer Maniacs and could be easily recognized by his hard hat and his special ‘apron.’

Honoring Big Cat’s wishes, cremation was arranged by the Fred L. Jenkins Funeral Home. No services will be scheduled. To honor Big Cat, wear a Blue and Gold apron this Saturday against Baylor.

Don't forget old #16


If I had a nickel for every beer I drank with this guy at Tailgater's Pub.....I would had a lot of nickels......


(I'm sure some of you recall 9/11/2001 was a Tuesday and WVU was scheduled to play Maryland the same week on Sat. 9/15 (similar to this week). Game was obviously cancelled and moved to 2 weeks later when both teams had a Bye week.)

We will never forget you, my friend......once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer

The following is from an article that was written several years ago:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Dan Shrensky

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Christopher S. Gray '92, '94 M.S., was among more than 6,000 people missing after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York. He worked for Cantor Fitzgerald & Co., a brokerage firm that lost nearly 700 of its 1,250 employees on September 11, 2001. Donations can be made to: The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, 101 Park Ave., 45th Floor, New York, NY 10178-0060, attention Dr. Philip Ginsberg or Ms. Edie Lutnick.

Chris Gray was the kind of guy who easily could have inspired jealousy in other men. That is, if he wasn't so damned likable.

Tall, blond, and good-looking, bright and witty, with a winning personality, Chris sufficiently undermined my ability to be an objective journalist while working as a sportswriter for the Dominion Post from 1989 to 1995. Objectivity could take a break�you could not help but root for the guy.

I can't pretend to have been great friends with Chris, but I was well acquainted with him, having covered WVU football for the DP. Chris, from Manalapan, New Jersey, was a quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1987 to 1991. Not a great player, to be sure, but memorable nonetheless. I have several lasting impressions of Chris that merely offer a small glimpse of his personality. These recollections may, however, give some depth to the tragedy of his loss.

The first time I met Chris was when I interviewed him for a story. For the uninitiated, the process of interviewing WVU players at preseason camp goes like this: journalists from all over the state mill around a small lobby outside the cafeteria at the Milan Puskar Facilities Building while players file past en route to lunch. After eating, the players are then available for interviews.

I didn't know who Chris was, but he made an immediate impression when someone pointed him out to me. Typically, the athletes who walk past do their best to maintain a stern, no-nonsense, tough-guy look. Not Chris. He appeared wearing wraparound Ray Ban sunglasses and a loud Hawaiian shirt. All the while he was beaming, seemingly enjoying the attention as well as his presence among his teammates.

"Who is this ****y kid?," I immediately thought. But that notion quickly vanished. During the interview, Chris never stopped smiling. After the first question, I heaved a sigh of relief knowing I wasn't going to get the typical, one-dimensional answers so many players offer. This was a well-spoken young man who was clearly enjoying himself.

To WVU fans, Gray is undoubtedly most remembered for fumbling near the goal line in a heartbreaking loss to Virginia Tech at Mountaineer Field in 1991. Although devastated in the locker room after the game, Chris did not shy away from talking to the media, a courageous display that further endeared him to me and other media members.

After his playing days, I was amazed as I watched him put people at ease by openly talking about it. On many occasions, I saw him humorously recreate the play for delighted onlookers at bars and tailgates.

Chris could give as well get, though. After his playing days, he joined the press corps for a brief stint as a contributor for the Blue and Gold News. In the press box before a game against Boston College, I heard someone disparaging a lengthy feature story I had written about BC quarterback Glen Foley. I whipped my head around in anger only to be greeted by Chris's grin. Gotcha.

Lastly, I remember often running into Chris at the Sports Page downtown, where we shared a passion for the golf-themed pinball machine in the corner. "I'm gettin' pretty teed off" was the electronic catch phrase the machine emitted at random intervals. It became an in joke that we used to serve notice that we were in the bar.

During this time, I became a little better acquainted with Chris. We didn't often talk about sports, but I discovered he was even brighter than I had originally surmised. The last time I saw Chris, he was leaving Morgantown to take a job in international finance somewhere in New York City. This would not turn out to be the job that placed him in the World Trade Center. That would come later, a career advancement with unforeseen and dire consequences.

Some of my last thoughts of Chris resurfaced when I learned he was missing in the aftermath of the September 11 disaster. My thoughts were of Chris's future and how he had everything ahead of him in life: a great job, a fianc�e, and a magnetic personality that was hard to resist.

He was to be envied for sure, but never begrudged. He was too good a person for that.

Now Chris is mourned, denied the bright future he so richly deserved.

............could be a problem, i went with chunks of whole milk mozz and huge Bridgford Pepperoni sticks (and some with Boars Head sliced pepp)..........OVERSTUFFED them and got greedy.

Only 10 min in and my oven in shaking like Bobby Brady's washing machine, when he put in too much soap.


Time to pray for forgiveness to the pepperoni gods

Ps. 10:3 - "the greedy man curses and spurns God"
Prov. 11:6 - "the treacherous are caught by their own greed"
Jere. 6:13; 8:10 - "everyone is greedy for gain"
Lk. 12:15 - "be on guard against every form of greed; life is not in possessions"
Eph. 4:9 - "Gentiles...practice every kind of impurity with greediness"
I Thess. 2:5 - "we did not come with pretext for greed"
I Tim. 3:8 - (deacons) "not fond of sordid gain" (cf. Titus 1:7)
II Peter 2:3 - (false prophets) "in their greed they will exploit you with false words"
II Peter 2:14 - (false prophets) "have hearts trained in greed"
