    I honestly thought ND would have a slight advantage.

    English and Americans queue up by tradition and nature. Germans are pretty bad to push past. In the Swiss ski resorts, they usually have a "vee" shaped area for skiers approaching the lifts, instead of corridors, like in the US. It's sort of like what they use to funnel cattle in for slaughter. Everyone just shuffles forward. It helps your speed if you use your elbows a bit. It's a terrible system. One year, I was approaching with my daughter, early 20s at the time, and she's not very big. Some big German guy kept pushing past her and she finally lost it and too her pole and planted right on top of the tip of his brand-new shiny skis. His eyes got round as saucers, but he let her go ahead...

    WOW, what a difference 24 hours makes. The friends we're staying with apparently know some rich guys, cause we've been invited to watch the game from a suite 215, by the 40 yard line! If this does happen, I'm gonna be posting my tickets on the tickets page, and no, it won't be anywhere near what people are asking for them. My wife and I know how hard it was to buy tickets this year (paid $2500) and both said that if we were ever in a sellers position, we wouldn't sell them for that much. Wish us luck!

    Driving down from our home (Boca Raton) to check out the scene at South Beach, stop by the Clevelander for the Bama party. I do not expect to be pelted with beads, doused with beer or serenaded by obscenities like last year on Bourbon Street (and that was daytime).

    Re: Heading down to Miami

    Well I gotta tell you:
    1) My best Bama buddy in Ms went to one game last year when we first played LSU(Lost)
    2) I went to one game last year, the Natl Chp game(Won)
    3) My same Bama buddy has been to one game this year when we played Texas A&M(Lost)
    So as you can guess I told him it is up to me once again to correct his mistake!ha
    Left Jackson MS on Thursday and have stayed with family in Pensacola and now Deland Fla.
    4 hour drive tomorrow and will be in Miami, can't wait to get there and be around my fellow Tide Fans!!RTR!!

    I spent most of my day at the Clevelander. Disappointing news so far is...

    1) It looks like all the "official bcs merchandise" is crap. By that I mean the groups doing the official ordering for all the BCS events ordered the EXACT same colors for NIU and Alabama, because it is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY off any alabama red/crimson I've ever seen. And I don't mean the corner stores selling stuff, I mean the officially licensed, BCS licensed stores that are set up. It's ridiculous.

    2) The pep rally today started an hour earlier (@4pm, not 5pm, as advertised) so a few hundred fans that showed up for the last 15 minutes of the show, instead of early. That made me a sad panda.

    Maybe you're still on Central time?
