Up early to enjoy the sunrise with the dog. It's a great scene here, geese in the cove, (gas)fires in the (gas)fireplaces, coffee, etc. About an hour from now, I'll make the four-plus hour trek to Charlottesville for the UVA-NC State game, where the underachieving Wolfpack comes to town to take on the Wahoos, fresh off a big victory over then #12 ranked Georgia Tech.
I am, of course, wary of any game opponent that follows a big win. NC State is 3-3, with ACC losses to a surprisingly tough Wake team and a very close loss to Georgia Tech. This SHOULD be a very close game, which does not bode well for me returning home tonight at a decent hour, as the better the game, the longer it takes to get out of Charlottesville.
Oh....the other thing. Hammer and I have a steak dinner on the game's outcome.
