Getting ready to head out to the stadium. There will be a lot of pregame celebration, including memorial for 9/11 and honoring of first responders.
Also, I’m told Army will wear 25th Infantry Division patches, in honor of the “Tropic Lightning” based at Schofield Barracks.
Between people from Hawaii including at least two large tour groups and fans who have gathered from throughout the Eastern United States, I’m estimating more than 1,000 UH supporters today.
Haven’t been out the door yet, but skies are clear.
Toward the end of the Friday walkthrough, three skydivers jumped from a helicopter and landed on the field (a safe distance from any players). The players applauded.
Former New York Giants cornerback Jason Sehorn attended, and spoke with Bryant Moniz and Greg Salas afterward. Sehorn is the analyst for tomorrow’s TV broadcast.
“The Hawaii offense is so fast and Army hasn’t played anything like it,” Sehorn said. “For Army to win they have to be able to stop it, but I don’t know if they can.”
Since tomorrow’s game starts so early, I’ll start taking score predictions now. If somebody gets it exactly right, I’ll take you to lunch. I don’t know where yet, but I’ll give you a couple of choices. First person to submit the score only wins. No one hit it last week.
