Dom leaves for the airport about 3 for a 10:22 p.m. flight for Frankfort; supposed to touch down around noon Wednesday, Germany time. He’ll be the only beat writer from a Connecticut newspaper on the trip so he’s out to bring you as much about the Huskies’ trip to Europe as he can. Over the three days in Germany there’ll be plenty to do ahead of the game vs. Michigan State, which tips at 6 p.m. our time on Friday.
He’ll be with the team as they visit the USO Center for Wounded Warriors on Wednesday. Then there’s practice later in the afternoon.
On Thursday he’s on hand as the Huskies work with the children of service men and women in a clinic. They expect 100 kids or more. After that, another practice.
Then Game Day Friday activities include “Appreciation Day” where the teams will meet with Airmen and Airwomen in the morning. The Huskies will then get to practice on the actual game court in the enormous hangar. Following a lengthy break, the Huskies and Spartans tip at midnight in Germany (6 p.m. back here). Whew!
Bottom line is we want you along on this trip. Dom will do his best to not only provide coverage of the team, but also the sites and sounds of Ramstein Air Base and the surrounding area. Keep up with us on courant.com for updates throughout each day, as well as photos and video. And, of course, on twitter @AmoreCourant. Like we said, The Courant’s the only state paper making the trip so there’s only one place to go for the best coverage of this historic UConn trip.
