Tomorrow: Commencement!

grad04_lres

So tomorrow is graduation . . . today was our rehearsal at Sun Devil Stadium in my hometown of Tempe, Ariz. And as if this weren’t cool enough, I was fortunate enough to receive an award which will put me in the seat pictured below about four seats from the left in the first row. I may not be shaking President Obama’s hand tomorrow, but at least I get to be front row.
