Well, it’s Game Day. Oregon Ducks and Ohio State Buckeyes fans have descended on Dallas in force. Last night at dinner there were school colors everywhere in evidence and some friendly bantering between supporters of the two universities.
In addition to anticipation of the game itself, there’s also curiosity and questions about the venue. AT&T Stadium is supposed to be a lavish monument to Texas football. But, where to park? Are there places to eat nearby? How bad will the traffic be? When should we head to Arlington?
Kish calls me the uptight traveler, and she’s right — I like to get to places early. In this case, getting to the game site early not only seems prudent, but it also will allow us to enjoy the pomp and pageantry and building excitement of the very first college football National Championship Game.
