Minutes from now I'll be on the road, headed to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond for the state high school basketball tournament. One of the girls teams I cover at the paper is playing in the Final Four tonight.
If they win, they'll play in the state Group A basketball championship game on Saturday at 11 a.m.
I'm looking forward to covering tonight's game for several reasons. First, it's cool to have a local team succeed. Second, VCU's got a very nice gym and it sounds like they're going to run a very professional tournament there. They'll keep game stats and provide items to make my job easier.
Even though I'm at a weekly paper, I'll get a feel for the life of a daily sportswriter tonight, since I'm writing a short story on the game for our daily sister paper. I've got a laptop and will send the story from the arena before leaving for the night.Posted by JRC at March 10, 2005 02:12 PM | TrackBack
