Nice thing to say with all the negative ink about it amounting to a Penn home game. Guess I have to root for the Crimson. My niece is there so I have a family excuse.

I'm hoping BHYP have enough of a turnout to make the Palestra like it was when there was a Big 5 doubleheader. I used to attend those even when Penn wasn't playing because the atmosphere was so incredible.

The Women and men will share the locker rooms. #1 seed (Princeton) gets the womens home locker room, #2 seed (Harvard) gets Penn mens home locker room, Penn ends up in the worst locker room in the Palestra.




Which means, since the Princeton men are playing right after them, that the Penn women don't get to use their own locker room. OK, now I'm really going to have to have a chat with Robin Harris.

Why would Brown fans show up?

Line is now Penn +7. 3-1 on the money line. I think that's great value as it's now out of last minute FT territory. Losing that bet means it was something of a blowout.

Harvard is -2.5 now. I still like them just not as much. I question how the young ones will play under pressure.

3 points is a pretty major line jump. Someone out there isn't thinking too well of us and it's rare the public is able to do that on their own for a smaller game like this.

I think it is not that surprising given how little is probably bet on these games (and how much Princeton fans have to bet)

Tommy Amaker made some very strong g statements that the ILT should be permanently at the Palestra. About the talk concerning Penn and HCA he said "this is above all that". Believes we should showcase the best arena in the league.

I couldn't agree more.



Of course it has to be played in the only legitimate gym in the conference.

I think I hear your pain, P38. Do ... you need a loan?

On another topic, I pass through Tucson a couple of times each year. There are lots of good places to eat. But, for breakfast, IMHO, there is only one: Frank's By Day, Francisco's By Night. (Yes, that is all one name). Located in a modest neighborhood, no $ wasted on decor. I always sit inside, Bot you can also sit outside beneath the sign that says, "Elegant Dining? Go Elsewhere".

For the money (and atmosphere), no better breakfast anywhere. Give it a try next time you are in Tucson. Like a funny waiter once said to me after recommending a special, "You'll thank me for it!".

This set up is crazy. There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason for sections. 108 on the baseline is clearly Penn season tickets but they're next to Princeton students and then the Princeton band in 109 and 110. Penn students and band across the court. I surprisingly see a lot of Orange so I bet it's more like 60/40 penn fans.

Plus, if you get team tickets in some chair-backs you get a wristband and have to switch at the next game.

Guys, we're getting ready to play some games.

I think we need another off topic board for the older guys.
