The managers were here at 6am sharp this morning to unload the truck from the OSU game up in Corvallis. They got everything put away and the player bags unpacked and everything put back in the player's locker in McKale.
Tim has given them a well deserved rest of the day off! Many of the managers are starting to have test in their classes, so this is a perfect time of a bye week and a day off. We will start practice again tomorrow afternoon and get back into the grind.
We just received news that the Washington Husky game in Seattle has been moved to 7pm to accommodate TV, so it will be another early Sunday morning arrival back home to Tucson. Then it is home sweet home for over a month. The next road trip will not be until November 14 game in Berkeley California against the Cal Bears.
Now let's just hope that the great weather we got in Corvallis will carry over to Seattle, since it is still somewhat early in the fall! I'm guessing we will still need a light jacket at best though for the Husky game.
By the way, Tim, Benny and the managers did an outstanding job for the game up in Corvallis!!! I say this all the time...."we are the luckiest people in the world", but I have to say that I am the luckiest of them all. I have the BEST people in the world all around me, and that is a BEAUTIFUL thing!
