Is It Me?

Is it me or has the Rumble in the Bronx turned into the Rumble in the Bronx, Manhattan, and New Jersey? I noticed from the Rivals Seton Hall Site, which happens to be one of the best for recruiting news in addition to news on SHU basketball (I mistakenly said Zagsblog earlier in error), that the playing sites are very spread apart. I was really looking forward to attending this event which has always been a favorite of mine. I even had JShuttlesworth check some camera prices for me in North Jersey because I planned on taking alot of photos while I attended the games. Kind of wanted to buy that Canon 40D which Gateway has for $1100, which is cheaper than everyone else. But the stores in Bergen County will not price match unfortunately.

Back to the Rumble. Maybe I am missing something but the beauty of that event is being able to see so many games under one roof. Now it could cost $50 in gas getting around to all the sites. It has almost become a regional thing as opposed to a Bronx based event. Fordham to Manhattan College to a public school, to the NJ Nets practice facility? Please this is definitely now just for the kids playing and not for the average hoops fans and basketball junkies.

Again maybe I read into it wrong. But the spread out format has taking the excitement out of me wishing to attend. Maybe I will wait for the Hoop Group event at Rutgers next week.

I can still do that. Just go to the White Castle in Orange NJ and order a dozen and put it on my account lol. Are you going?

I'll be there on Saturday.

I do think I prefer the White Castle on Scotland Road in Orange though. Good call.

I looked up the schedule after I read your comments and could not believe it.

I think I'm going to just park my butt at Rose Hill and stay put for a few games Saturday afternoon.

Keep up the good work, I really enjoy the blog.
