Made it to St. Thomas for 2008 Paradise Jam

Guess I brought the rain with me, but finally landed in St. Thomas for the 2008 Paradise Jam today. Basketball players littered the airport and the locals are excited about the women being in town. “The women’s games are more competitive than the men,” said Sam, my host at the condo I’m renting.
California, which moved up to No. 3 in national rankings behind a load of upsets and their big win against previous-No. 3 Rutgers, concludes the action on Thursday, the opening day of the tournament. It’s supposedly the last year of the tourney. Well, this is the contracted final year, I’m told, and they’ll see about continuing. Storm F Lauren Jackson’s Seattle-based agent, Susie Jarosch, once told me I had to check it out, so that’s why I booked the ticket long ago.
Anyway, there were a ton of upsets while I was taking what felt like 20 planes to get here. You can read more about them here. Check back on this blog on Thursday for game action from the island. I’m going to checkout the sights and give you any tidbits I find.
