Grand Central Avenue, which includes Vienna's Miracle Mile, is proclaimed to be the busiest thoroughfare in West Virginia.
But even it will be virtually void of traffic for three hours beginning at 6:30 p.m. today.
That's when West Virginia University's football team will meet North Carolina State in the Champs Sports Bowl.
While that game hardly will cause a riffle in 48 - perhaps even 49- other states, it will draw huge TV ratings in West Virginia, which goes ga-ga over the Mountaineers.
And why not?
West Virginia doesn't have a professional team.
In the Mountain State, WVU is the Steelers, Cavaliers and Reds rolled into one.
It's the one entity that binds us together, that makes us proud to be Mountaineers.
Yes, even Mountaineers have their internal squabbles. We're in the midst of a doozy right now.
Part of Mountaineer Nation supports the recent move by Athletics Director Oliver Luck to replace football coach Bill Stewart following the 2011 season. Others believe Luck has moved too fast and fired a popular coach with the highest winning percentage in school history.
Yet, this is a family feud. Outsiders need not get involved.
Play West Virginia University and you are playing an entire state.
As Jack Fleming used to say to open every broadcast on the Mountaineer Sports Network, "The hills resound with the sounds of Mountaineer football and the West Virginia University Mountaineers are on the air.''
That's all he needed to say to give every Mountaineer fan cold chills.
West Virginia is our state and WVU is our team.
Like any team, the Mountaineers often break our hearts.
We feel like we have so much invested in rooting for WVU, we take losing rather hard. When the stakes are high, we take losing even harder.
Yes, it may be a minor December bowl game to the rest of the nation, but for three hours tonight, the streets in West Virginia will be pretty deserted.
A couple of astute local high school athletics directors figured that out and moved their team's previously-scheduled Tuesday night events once the bowl situation worked itself out.
There are so many storylines being played out.
Come Wednesday morning, we'll all go back to our jobs and start choosing up sides on what took place and what the future holds in Morgantown.
For three hours tonight, West Virginians will unite behind their team.
