Thursday March 12, 2009 - On the Road Again


6:11 A.M. - The early bird goes in search of the worm, but 6:11 is even earlier when the previous day ended at 3:00.
__________________________
6:35 A.M. - Off to see the wizard- the wizard of Augusta County Media. All of the webcast down at the News Virginian finally pays off as I have earned an invite from Jim Sacco to make the trek down to the Siegel Center for the 11:00 A.M. Buffalo Gap vs. Franklin Class A State Semi-Final.
__________________________
7:10 A.M. - One quick stop in New Market to pick up this weeks edition of the Free Press newspaper. The Free Press is a weekly publication based out of Woodstock, Virginia and is a must read every Thursday morning. This week the paper gives you an inside look at the life of the local high school AD's as Spring Sports start while Winter Sports are still going on. Plus a preview of the upcoming baseball series JMU will be playing at Rebel Park in New Market this week-end.
__________________________
8:02 A.M. - The Wizard doesn't look all that rested but does appear to have half his bounce back in his step as we meet in the Park & Ride outside Target in Waynesboro. I am not sure if the beard is working for Jim, we will have to ask his wife about later. During the drive down to VCU we managed to solve everyone of the problems in the World of Sports. We left World Peace for the ride home!
__________________________
10:05 A.M. - We bumped in to Mr. Jeff Wright on the way in the building and Jeff asked how things were going with the Generals? Told him that conversation would run us past the opening tip but I thanked him for asking. Jeff made the drive down to be able to do live remotes for his radio station - Rebel 95.5 out of Buffalo Gap / Staunton.
__________________________
10:15 A.M. - A quick visit with Coach Coffey finds a relaxed young man, you would think he had been here before. Wait, I guess he has been- just last season. The team made the trip down last night after practice and Coach says the group is trying to relish the experience. 45 minutes to game time and fans are starting to enter the Alltel Pavillion.
