We’re a little less than an hour from the start of Washington vs. Hawaii, which is being billed over here as the biggest game in Hawaii history. That, of course, has a lot more to do with what’s at stake (a BCS Bowl bid) than who the Warriors are playing against.
For those waiting for the game to start on TV, it’s going to start about 10 minutes later than the 6:30 time we’ve been hearing.
One thing you’ll see if you do tune in is the Huskies in purple instead of their usual road whites. Hawaii is wearing white instead of the usual black home uniforms.
So far it’s staying dry here, but some rain is expected, and there are some dark clouds not too far away. With rain and the Huskies in purple, it’ll feel just like a home game… well, aside for the fact that it’s 80 degrees on Dec. 1.
From walking around the parking lots, there are quite a few Husky fans here, and they seem they seem to be getting along well with the Hawaii fans. There have been reports of visiting fans having problems at games here, but so far things seem peaceful.
I’ll be checking in with game updates, but they will slow as it gets late because I’ll be having to spend more writing a game story. Speaking of which, because this game won’t likely end until after midnight Seattle time, you won’t find a story on the game in your Sunday paper, but I will be posting a game story on the heraldnet.com late tonight, so you’ll be able to find it there.
