Again this year, we took the major-freeway route, with high speed limits. I made sandwiches for the road and we arrived to Las Vegas in just over four hours, checked-in to a hotel and had a nice (quick, quiet) meal at the nearby Il Fornaio in New York New York hotel.

T-Mobile Arena to catch the second half of the Beaver v Huskie game. As we approached the new arena, look who we found at a Duck pep rally:

Even the Duck was exhausted.

We live to play another day!

Or night. The Ducks face the University of Utah at 8:30p pacific tomorrow. Fox Sports 1.

Until my next update, I remain, your sporty correspondent.
