Going Home For Christmas

Hit Play Before Reading:
Ahh, it’s Christmas time in Storrs (and the Nike socks were hung in the lockers with care…with hope that St. Randy soon would be there). One last practice (meetings starting in about 20 minutes), then it’s a 5-hour drive to Upstate New York. Leaving the frosty tundra of Storrs for the…frosty tundra of Rochester, New York. Nothing like getting on the New York State Thruway, and 350 miles later you’ve seen so much snow your retina’s are seared and each barn is more dilapidated than the next.
It’s been a great week of practice (monotony aside). It kind of had a feel somewhere between training camp and spring ball. The intensity was a lot higher than a normal practice (indicated by a few swinging fists and extra jawing by the interior linemen).
Anyway, I’m off to practice, but not before some…
I just finished reading “Playing for Pizza” by John Grisham. Unbelievable read. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good book, character driven. (Uh oh, NCAA…did I just endorse something?).

Huskies are making going bowling a tradition. Tune in for some live blogs and guest blogging on other sites. I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
