Turns out I was overly optimistic about the internet at the Times Union Center. It was on and off all day. Mostly off. For some reason the computers around me got better reception, although theirs wasn’t perfect either. I ended up calling results into the office, which my editors then posted on the blog.
For people who were sitting at home hitting the Refresh button, you were probably frustrated at not getting enough updates. I know you want it as up-to-the-minute as possible. Today I’ll try to get them in more frequently, even if I have to keep calling the office. Just understand that when I don’t have internet it gets complicated. I have to leave the floor of the arena because it’s too loud, which means I can only do it when no one from Section 1 is wrestling (because I want to watch the matches). And sending detailed info over the phone is iffy.
I consider myself lucky to have even made the event. I got food poisoning last night from some bad yogurt and was afraid I wouldn’t be able to make the drive to Albany. It cleared up enough in the morning, thankfully. The lesson? Never eat yogurt.
