Looks like this is Dickie V’s flight from Teterboro to Sarasota, FL tonight. He is announcing the games at Madison Square Garden for the Jimmie V Classic. I heard him say during the first game he wanted to get back to Sarasota tonight and it made me think to look up the scheduled flights.

In looking at the history of N50M he must fly on this plane often. The plane went from Sarasota to Raleigh Durham on Nov 20 for the Duke-Indiana game (which I was at as I have season tickets to Duke basketball) and then departed the next night after the UNC-Ohio State game.

Don’t know if anyone saw Jimmy Valvano’s speach between games. It was the replay of his speech at the 1993 ESPY Awards seen before his death. I made my 11 year old son watch and reminded him not to complain about the petty things. (Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.)
