This writer is as sick of hearing about Mountainlair: Coal Bowl Week as I am. Love the Mountaineers, root for Marshall every time they're not playing WVU, but HATE this whole "Friends of Coal" bullshit. They're friends of coal? Well, I'm friends of coal families. The ones who risk their lives every day several miles underground. The ones who are having their lives ruined by poor environmental forces. The ones who are dying of black lung. The one who are losing their houses to flooding and slippage. all of which is caused by irresponsible mining practices.
