WLOY goes to Louisville Part 1
October 28th, 2010 by Tim Teeling
And we are off! Some of the WLOY crew is heading to Louisville, KY for the weekend for the National College Media Convention. I’m going to try and sporadically send updates about what we are up to and what sort of ridiculous stuff happens.
To start, I just want to put a disclaimer out there That’s I’m typing this on my phone so please excuse my misspellings and poor grammar. I know this will get on the Web Mistress’ (Amanda Nolan) nerves.
We are bringing quite a crowd to the convention. I’m joined by The Professor, Billy, Christa, Amanda, and Anthony. We almost left Anthony this morning because he got caught up playing his PlayStation in his room and almost forgot about us. Anthony also made the mistake of bringing a HUGE suitcase that had to be checked… How much clothing is he planning on wearing over the course of four days?
It’s never fun getting up early for flights but sometimes it is just funny to hear what people say early in the morning when they are not fully awake. Amanda managed to do and say some things that’s worth me sharing with everyone… First she was so excited that this was going to be her first trip to BWI Airport. She was acting like such a tourist walking around looking at all the shops in the terminal. Later on we were sitting at our gate waiting to board and Amanda finally noticed that the sun had come up. She proceeds to look out the windows of the terminal and announces to all of us, “The foliage is so nice this time of year!”
I am going to try and post at least once everyday for the duration of the trip. I might try and get someone else here with me to write about their experiences as well. It’s going to be a fun long weekend! Hopefully the rest of the staff at WLOY doesn’t miss us too much yet…
