Today, the Monmouth University Hawks will host the Fairleigh Dickinson University Knights at the MAC Center in West Long Branch, New Jersey. I won’t be able to attend the game because I’m essentially snowed in (see pictures below)!
A few comments. First, I hate when there is a home game for Monmouth that I can’t attend. I really enjoy going to the games, hanging out in The Varsity Club before and after the game, and watching the Hawks compete against their competition. It’s a really good time (or at least I think so). Second, it’s amazing that the game wasn’t canceled (at least it hasn’t been canceled as of 10:00am today). And third – what’s the deal with all of the snow?! I heard from some of my friends in North Jersey that there are spots where the snow isn’t that bad at all. Meanwhile, down here in Tinton Falls we’ve got a foot and more to come!
My cousin was actually going to come down for the game today so he and I could celebrate our respective birthdays (he turned 29 yesterday – Happy Birthday, cousin!). Unfortunately, though, the pending snow storm canceled those plans for us. For those of you looking for some coverage of the basketball game today, you can check out the official online home of the Hawks by clicking here or check out Tony Graham at The Hawks Nest.
Anyway, since my plan for the blog today was to add a bunch of pictures from the Monmouth game that I won’t be able to attend now, enjoy some pictures from outside of my townhouse. The green arrow in one of the pictures is pointing to my car.
