The St. Norbert men's basketball team is off and running to Germany! We departed SNC at 10:30 a.m. to head down to O'Hare International Airport in Chicago. We took a quick pit stop in Milwaukee at the State Fair Park to pick up some of the players that live in the area. Our flight leaves at 4:20 p.m. today and we will fly overnight into Amsterdam, arriving at approximately 7 a.m. local time. While in Germany, our clocks will be seven hours ahead of those back in De Pere. With the NBA Conference Finals getting underway around the same time as our trip, some guys on the team are concerned with having to wake up/stay up in the wee hours of the morning to catch the games. However, it shouldn't be much of an issue as most of the guys on the team have developed a "you can sleep when you're dead" mindset for the trip. The excitement had been building all spring as we moved closer to this once-in-a-lifetime experience and now we are finally on our way. Be sure to check back with the SNC men's basketball team as we document our adventure around Germany through this blog, written by incoming senior Riley Haas and incoming junior Joe Lemon. See you guys on the other side!
