After the incredible effort last night, I was keyed up and could not sleep, so I finished up post game blog entry, playoff update, etc., mindful of the fact that wife and I needed to arise at 4:15 am for our flight to St. Louis.
So, a little worse for the wear, we headed out and arrived without incident, getting a 1 day head start on the rest of the Jacket Backers contingent arriving tomorrow. We were treated to a pretty rough flight, courtesy of a storm system scheduled to hit Columbus tomorrow. Arrived in St. Louis to very chilly and windy conditions — and of course I declined my wife’s suggestion to bring a jacket.
Staying at the Sheraton just a lob wedge away from the Scottrade Center, and have already paid the first installment of our Missouri Transit Tax at the Lumiere Casino. More to follow, I am sure. Trying to find out if we can get in to see the morning skate tomorrow, so if anybody has info on this, let me know.
Off to a comedy show this evening a small club in The Landing, presumably preceded by dinner nearby. It warned up a bit today, but is not “shorts and T-Shirt” weather.
We have the blue hair in our suitcases, the camera ready, appropriate CBJ attire and are ready to see us move closer to the Promised Land. I will provide updates here as I can, and via Twitter when I can’t. Look for us on the broadcast!! Go Jackets!!
