We are now aboard the ship, ms Ryndam, and heading towards Cozumel. We got up at about 8am this morning and got ready, then met mom and dad for breakfast at the hotel. After breakfast we finished packing up and got a shuttle to the port. After going through security and checking in we boarded the ship and went and found our room, #689. The room wasn’t quite ready yet, but other than the “piss” smell in the hallway everything looked great.
State was playing today at 12:15 and it was now 12:30. My goal in life for that moment was to find a tv so that I could watch the game. After wandering around, and asking, we found a bar with a tv and the game was on, score! So we sat down to watch the game and have a beer. Georgetown lead for most of the first half but State made a little run and took the lead at the half.
Now that it was halftime we needed to find food! We were all starving! We went up to the Lido restaurant and grabbed a sandwich. I checked twitter and State was on a very good run. I couldn’t bring my self to stop the mojo by going to watch, so I just kept checking twitter for updates. When things got close again and there was about 10 minutes left we went back to the bar to watch. After an agonizing hour of my life State actually pulled it out and we are going to the Sweet Sixteen!!!! Now I just hope I’ll be able to watch the next game!
Once I stopped shaking from the game we went back to the room to find our bags had been delivered so we unpacked and chilled out for a bit. We had to do our emergency drill and go to our designated life boat area. Other than letting us know that we will be the youngest able people on the life boat this drill was quite worthless. Hopefully if there is an emergency we will be able to dodge all the walkers and wheelchairs and get to the life raft first!
