Hello Canes Country,
Hitchhiking with Team Teal on their roadtrip will be Dave Valentine, the Southern Belle, and yours truly, Conico (aka Mr. K.), from your SBN brethren Fear the Fin. I'm flying out from San Jose, while Dave and his lovely bride are driving up from Columbia (with me in the backseat).
We're not expecting a red carpet or anything, but if you have any Raleigh tips for some misplaced fans, we'd love to know them - non-hockey attractions, RBC pointers, Carolina facts, local traditions, etc etc. I'm a teacher by day (hockey dork by night), so if there's a Civil War battlefield within a reasonable distance, I'd be curious to see it.
If anyone's going to be at the game, I'm always down for a meet-and-greet = we're nice folks, for opposing fans (we're still grateful you beat Edmonton in '06).
Conico do Mayo Miracle
