    Jumped online this morning to do some research for my A1 story tomorrow on our local team, and the thought hit me: Any of our beloved SportsJournalists.com brethren going to be in the bowels of Carver Arena today for the Illinois Class 3A and 4A boys basketball state championship games?

    I'm home now, but will check back once I set up shop in the press room.

    I'll save some stale chips and salsa for ya! :D

    I have a desk shift today half a country away. Never thought I'd be wistful for a small bowl of chips, unlimited bottles of water and a suspiciously high number of IllinoisHighSchoolSports.com message board posters with media credentials.

    No, but I heard what Zion-Benton did last night. Crazy.

    I very nearly went ... the team I cover has a recruit playing. But I just came off of three months of traveling and I didn't think the beancounters would look kindly on a trip to see a recruit.

    That ... and Carver Arena's wireless bites it hard.

    Not having a problem with the wireless at all. They must have brought out the extra juice for the weekend.

    So SportsJournalists.com members outnumber NBA all-stars here 2 to 1?

    Dwayne Wade in the house tonight.

    I was there allllll weekend last week. Spat out 10 stories in 2 days, in fact. Never had a problem with the wireless. Did have a problem with the mostly empty arena and annoying cheerleaders bleating in my face for three of the five games I had to watch from courtside.

    None last week... or at girls state, for that matter.

    No problems with the waiver thing... interesting.

    The IHSA caved on that a few weeks ago.
