Championship Morning


By Mark Brumbaugh
SID Seating, Qwest Center, Omaha, Neb. - Good morning Wildcats fans!

Bobby, Joe, Janah, Alex, and yours truly piled into our minivan at 7:45 a.m. this morning to make the short trip to the Qwest Center for today's tournament. By the looks of the participant parking lot, you'd be hard pressed to rent a minivan in the Omaha area, as I think they have been all signed out for the week.

Presently, I am sitting in my seat on SID row. There are two columns of four mats, so I am about five feet away from Mat 1. I certainly hope Alex is wrestling on Mats 1-4, because the others are at the opposite end of the arena and we'll be difficult to see. It looks like the seating assignments we're done alphabetically by school, so I am in between Cornell and Edinboro. The likes of Michigan and Michigan State are to my right behind me in what appears to be obstructed view seating with the Mat 1 scoring tower directly in front of them.

The capacity is 15,000 here, so it'll be pretty cool when it fills up.

All is calm now, except for my stomach. I'm dying for the media hospitality breakfast (opens at 9 a.m.) In the meantime, feel free to send me an email at mabrumbaugh@davidson.edu with any questions or comments.

Go 'Cats!
