Not going and I'm a bit upset. My current job brings me to the Tampa/Lakeland/Orlando area often and I can purposely schedule a trip when UConn is in town. If this game had been any time other than right around Christmas I would be going.
Not going and I have a condo in Clearwater. Unfortunately we are out on the Cape for Christmas and not flyinmg south until Jan 4 this year. Last year we timed our southward miration in time for the Fiesta Bowl. This year I am watching the game on the TV. Your seats will be fine. Not a big venue.
Live in Tampa, so ya. Anyone need any suggestions let me know. Channelside is a bar/rest area one block from the arena. Tickets should be free by tip off. Ybor is a quick trolley ride away, and South Tampa has all the college/young pros bars. (and one obnoxious Uconn fan named Bill)
9pm tip is great during the Holiday week. Looking forward to a fun night.
