After 6 hours worth of mechanical delays and flight cancellations, I've finally made it to the Sullivan arena. I flew in to the Anchorage airport in style, flying with the one and only Eric Estrada, of CHIPs fame. Pretty fun. He's in town doing a benefit for food programs to support underprivelaged local kids. Dare to Care is the name of the program.

Anyway, its business time. It's rivalry week, and I can't stress enough how intense this series is statewide. Even on the flight down, I was getting high-fives and glares left and right from supporters on each side. Coming from Oregon, its on the same level as the Oregon/Oregon State Civil War football game. Like I said in my preview, the student-organized buses should be arriving in Anchorage anytime now. Yes, plural, more than one. This ought to be interesting.

Chris Brooks, the media intern in the Athletic Department sat down with Dallas Ferguson earlier this week for a preview of this series. I've included the video here.

Wow, Gunderson isn't even their EBUG. Must be his punishment for quitting against whatever urban directional school in Minnesota that was.
