I just returned from my first NHL experience. (See Zamboni above.) It was cool, as I imagined it would be, and the fact that I left in the second period is not a reflection on the quality of the evening. Got things to do this evening.
The Cotton Bowl had great seats for us. I was about 10 rows up from the glass.
It was disappointing that I did not see a fight and did not see the home team score, but there were a few good body checks against the glass, and a coupe of penalties. Looked like the Egg Bowl on ice.
Nothing earth shattering on the bowl front today. Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt thought practice went well.
I congratulate the Rebels for being punctual to their 1 p.m. presser. Texas Tech was 45 minutes late.
The Rebels visited a children’s hospital in the afternoon. We should hear results of the Beef Bowl sometime in the morning.
Nutt and Texas Tech coach Mike Leach appear at 9 a.m. presser tomorrow, the last day of player and coach access.
I’ve gotten most of my interview stuff done, and now it’s mostly a matter of cranking out copy for the game day tab.
