Well, I just bought my ticket for tomorrow night's game! YES!!!!
I am driving from Orlando to Tampa tomorrow afternoon for the UCLA v. Michigan State and Florida v. UCSB (Session 2) games. I am not attending either of the Session 1 games (West Virginia v. Clemson and Kentucky v. Princeton). I am playing Saturday by ear. If UCLA is fortunate enough to win, I plan to try to buy tickets from disgruntled Michigan State fans immediately after the Thursday game.
To my knowledge, no other BNers are going to Tampa. If I am mistaken, and you will be there, please respond to this post and we can try to meet up for a beer before the games.
I will try to post thoughts about the game experience, atmosphere, fans, etc. during the game thread. I am also bringing my wife's DSLR camera with a few different lenses (the St. Pete Times Forum has a liberal camera policy) and will try to post some pics over the weekend. Hopefully they are "happy" pictures and not "sad" pictures.
Can't wait for tomorrow! GOOOOOO BRUINS!
