Big West Media Day Update
LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Instead of attending Big West Media Day in Irvine, I find myself back home on my couch in San Diego watching the fire updates on TV along with everyone else. I started to make the 75-mile trek north to Irvine this morning only to get cut off by an interstate closure along I-5, the primary corridor between San Diego and Los Angeles. The fires had come too close and made the northbound lanes impassable. I've never seen it closed in my five years of living here.
Since I won't have Big West news for you today, I can give you a bit of one resident's perspective of what's happening in San Diego and at Qualcomm Stadium, home of the San Diego State Aztecs.
