NYC – Half & Half (CNN)
I just spoke to the fine people with the UK Alumni Association in NYC and they’re getting slammed with phone calls and e-mails from Cats fans planning to attend next week’s game. While the questions and concerns they’re receiving are important, everyone back here in Kentucky needs to keep in mind that the people you’re calling are dealing with flooded apartments and offices and they still don’t have reliable electricity, especially Internet and cell service. Communication with them will be delayed and, honestly, a question about your hotel reservation isn’t at the top of their priority list — no offense. They’re putting their lives back together right now.
So, hopefully this will help you decide what you’re going to do next week.
Here’s what we know…
— Midtown hotels have power.
— The Barclays Center has power.
— Subway service to Barclays will most likely still be down.
— Downtown may not have power.
— Subways to and from the airports will most likely be delayed.
— Taxis have a three-person minimum.
— The game is still on.
Of course, any of those could change by next week, but this is how things stand as of right now.
