Jason Dixon covers the Storm, and is in Spokane for Arena Bowl XXIII between the Spokane Shock and your Tampa Bay Storm.
But he says it wasn’t easy getting there:
The Storm traveling party was split up onto several flights. Some members of the ownership group headed west on Tuesday. Equipment manager Juan Valdez and a portion of the equipment arrived here Wednesday morning. Myself, along with football operations assistant Monte Bussey and media relations assistant Evan Vladem jumped on a plane in Tampa with hopes of being in Spokane by noon. A mechanical problem delayed the flight and caused us to miss a connection. We were re-routed with an extra stop that saw us go from Tampa to Minneapolis to Portland to Spokane. We arrived at 6:30 PM Spokane Time.
With that kind itinerary, I hope the trip back is a happy one.
