Fall is my favorite time of year; the cool weather, the beautiful leaves falling from the trees, and college football! Growing up in Chapel Hill, I have seen some pretty amazing football games here at Kenan Stadium. A few of my recent favorite games happened during the 2008 season with the victories over Notre Dame (29 -24) and Georgia Tech (28-7) as well as our victory in 2009 over our rival Duke (19-6).
What made these games some of my favorites is the way the Tar Heels won, and the friends and family I shared these games with. One of our long time guests here at the Siena Hotel invited my family and me to the games and to share in their awesome tailgating! My youngest was so excited he slept the night prior in his Tar Heel football uniform. He wanted to sleep with his pads on, but he agreed to take them off as long as he could keep his cleats on.
Here at The Siena hotel we are buzzing with excitement with UNC’s first home football game this weekend as we are the new home for the 1360 WCHL and Inside Carolina Count Down To Kick Off show! The Count Down To Kick Off Show begins three hours prior to kick off, live from our lobby for each of the six home games this season. We will have special guests and awesome giveaways. So, be sure to stop by, even if you are not staying overnight. Who knows, you might even get on the radio to share your thoughts about the game!
