An Eventful Day -- And Night
What a day.
Hours after telling you that this newspaper had been sold to the McClatchy organization as part of the Knight-Ridder deal, morning began by learning that McClatchy, in turn, will re-sell us and 11 other newspapers.
Meanwhile, I arrived in the office in the early afternoon to prepare the organization of Selection Monday coverage and then learned that legendary Hall of Famer John Chaney had resigned as the men's coach at Temple, necessitating a quick detour to help the cause with reaction.
Then, everything came together in a crunch with yours truly zipping over to the Temple women's party and then coming back to the office to handle everything. In fact, I still haven't had a chance to really study the bracket.
Incidentally, Temple's and Rutger's placement in Trenton, etc., was not an attempt by the NCAA to help our travel budget through Boston. :)
Anybody out there heading to Trenton with other teams, feel free to email me for directions, etc. I have previously scouted out some places while helping the organizing committee up there with their planning, without regard to where I would end up.
