Yes, I am crazy. I have arrived at the MCI Center for the BB&T Classic hours early to catch action from some of the other squads and to rub shoulders with some of the big names here. This should be a very interesting day and the big names have come out.
The Washington Post does have a lot of its big names here, including Mike Wise and George Solomon (both on the press list). For his fans, former GW beat writer Ivan Carter also has his name on the list.
The arena is pretty empty for the Howard/Navy game, which Howard leads at the half 38-29. There are some Maryland fans here already and a few scattered GW faithful. Try to get out to the game early to avoid the rush. The bad weather slows things up a bit. In addition, take the Metro to avoid the weather emergency that they are sure to impliment soon.
Stay tuned for the Hatchet’s continous blogging throughout the game tonight.
