Republican Preview; Alumni & Recruit Updates

Gameday!  The six plus months wait is over.  The plan for today is to do some stuff around the house, jump in the car, make the long trek west on the Pike and…drive right past Amherst to get to Northampton.  Yep, sadly I’m going to miss the exhibition game.  Normally I wouldn’t but I am a huge fan of Ben Folds who is playing tonight at The Calvin, the site of the best Ben Folds concert I’ve ever seen.  Although seeing him play last night with the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall ranks up there as one of the most amazing concerts I’ve been to as well.

Anyway, do not fret, a very capable friend of mine who is attending has been nice enough to agree to send along their observations of what occurs so there will be some guest blog action going on tomorrow.
