Good afternoon everyone. It's Susan here.
UM football had off today and is off tomorrow.
But just in case you didn't know, the first-ever Canes Carnivale interactive festival is from 10:30 through 1 p.m.in the basketball field house and H-100 parking lot at the BankUnited Center on UM's campus.
The event is free to Hurricane Club members, who each can bring an additional three guests for free.
If you're not a Hurricane Club member, it costs $10 for admission and you become a Hurricane Club member (and can also then bring in three guests for free).
Student-athletes from every UM sports team will be represented.
Randy Shannon will be there for at least some of it (don't know when exactly), and some football players will be on hand as well. They didn't say which players.
Sounds great for families. For example, fans can try and strike out the baseball team, and also compete in an obstacle course against the women's and men's cross country and track teams. The football players apparently will be interacting with fans who test their throwing skills and go through a "mini-combine workout."
In the basketball field house, fans can participate in drills against the men's and women's teams (hey, maybe LeBron will show up again! Not.)
The golf team will have a putting green outside in the H-100 breezeway, with prizes available. Every team will have some activity.
The UM Sports Hall of Fame will set up a display with at least one item representing each sport. You also can get your photo taken with Vinny Testaverde's Heisman Trophy.
The event will close with a pep rally from 12:30 to 1 p.m., complete with the UM Marching Band, cheerleaders and Sunsations.
YOU MUST RSVP FOR THIS EVENT BY TONIGHT!!!! BECAUSE OF THE RESTRICTED SPACE, THERE
IS A LIMIT TO AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WHO CAN ATTEND. IF YOU SHOW UP TOMORROW WITHOUT
RSVPing, YOU MIGHT GET TURNED AWAY.
