On the Ground: New York
It's really cold.
But it's New York, so the excitement of the city trumps the windchill factor -- and that's a good thing, considering how sensitive some Southern Californians are temperatures below 65 degrees.
In addition to this weekend's college football festivities, today is the 25th anniversary of the assasination of John Lennon. We're staying just a few blocks south of the Dakota, the apartment building where he was gunned down in 1980, and fans have been making the trek to that now-hallowed ground to honor his legacy throughout the day.
As for the reason we're in town, most agree that Reggie Bush will be taking home this year's Heisman Trophy. The only question, says Kari Chisholm of handicapping website StiffArmTrophy.com,"is whether he will be the biggest winner of all time."
Glad to know there's still some drama left to salvage.
We've got a big day planned for tomorrow (and Saturday, obviously, as well), so keep checking back as we'll be posting photos and updates throughout the weekend.
