    Much different having to call a game due to inclement weather and closed airports, and walking out on your team with time left on the clock. That will forever be remebered as the most cowardly coaching act in Acc history. Heh, the cowardly lion, ya aint in kansas no more roy!

    Regardless of whether they did that, we'd still call him a coward. Ya know, because of what happened last year in Tallahassee.

    They are there. Game on. We call Roy a coward due to the lost colony in FL. That will last a lifetime.

    If Roy and The Flagship were to cancel an away game due to a little snow, they would be called "COWARDS!!" by the ABC crowd for years.Hee hee hee hee lookin' forward to it!!

    Our game is still on and scheduled for tomorrow evening at BC. Blizzard has shut down Logan Airport. Plan is to leave tomorrow AM.

    Hope they get the airport open in time.

  • foghat001 Feb 9, 2013

    As of right now - 7:20 pm - Boston's Logan airport is CLOSED and they have no statement about when they will be open for limited operations.

    Did the Duke team get up there pre-ice age?

    "This one doesn't come along every day. This is going to be a dangerous winter storm," said Alan Dunham, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Taunton, Mass. "Wherever you need to get to, get there by Friday afternoon and don't plan on leaving."

    Sigh. My Sunday just got harshed.

  • foghat001 Feb 9, 2013

    I hope so - but I don't want teams traveling if it's dangerous.
