10:30 AMGood Morning!
Are you ready to follow us to Ithaca, NY?
Well, that's too bad. We're not going.
A "snow hurricane" is hitting the Northeastern United States and the ol' Kia Rondo just isn't ready to go ice skating. We love her, she's been great, but we have families and putting our lives in the hands of a stationwagon/SUV to see the Big Red of Cornell is too risky.
With Cornell out of the equation for tonight, that also takes Syracuse off of the schedule for tomorrow, so we need a backup plan. We're frantically flipping through the college basketball schedule and calling places to make this work. And if it does work, it will be a Peyton Manning-like audible.
Right now, we're leaning towards going to Virginia Tech for the Maryland game or to Georgetown to see the Hoyas play the Fighting Harangodies. Both are Saturday games so we'll be taking it easy today unless we find a way to make it to the Idaho St.-Portland St. matchup. (And we're not counting that out.)
If you have any other suggestions, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, I'm going back to bed to sleep off this crazy night at Morehead State.
Talk to you soon.
