Actually, I just signed on as well. Just a late update here. Jeff Roberson and I just got back from the musical “Chicago.” We were pleased to hear a reference to the state of Mississippi in the show. It wasn’t a negative reference either, somewhat neutral.
We waited in line for an hour before the same-day tickets booth opened. Monday is an off day for most shows, and we were glad to find about a half dozen to choose from.
Across the street from the Marquis is a theatre where Mississippian Morgan Freeman is performing in a show called “The Country Girl.” I don’t think Morgan plays the part of the girl.
Two in our group, Thomas and Joseph of Ole Miss student media, attended a David Letterman taping today. Their show will air Friday night.
Most of the Ole Miss players are staying on the same floor as we are, the 22nd floor, at the Marquis. We’ve seen them bouncing in and out at various times in the day. Saw Zach Graham and Trevor Gaskins going out just a few minutes ago. I asked them what curfew was, and Graham said 5 a.m., as the elevator doors were closing. I think he was kidding.
Earlier this evening the teams were at an NIT banquet.
I’ll post some game notes tomorrow morning. The team has a 1 p.m. shoot-around at the Garden.
I hope the wireless situation will be good for the game, and I’ll be able to do the in-game updates.
Local weather calls for rain tomorrow, then the front moving through to bring a sunny day for Wednesday when we have Yankees tickets. We’re kind of hoping for another Yankees rainout tomorrow so it will be Opening Day when we get there.
