NU Alumni Dinner

WNUR Sports had a very successful internet-only video broadcast of the NAA event held at the glorious Camino Real hotel earlier this evening. Howard Tilman, Dan Platt, and Alex Freedman held down the fort at our makeshift TV set, while I wandered around with a wireless mic interviewing several NU big-wigs.

We got some free food and beverages out of the deal, as well as TWO mentions in speeches delivered by the executive director of the NAA (folled by prolonged, heartfelt applause) and NU President Henry Bienen. Nice.

Tomorrow we'll cover the players luncheon live on WNUR, as well as the fan fest on -- they say they're expecting 20,000 fans at the latter.

We've seen a lot of purple all over town--tshirts, hats, car flags, etc. NU will be represented pretty well at this game. The Bowl events have been really terrific so far and the folks here in El Paso have been quite hospitable.

See y'all tomorrow.
