For Syracuse fans, the countdown is on until Saturday when the Orange face Michigan in the Final Four in Atlanta. And some Syracuse fans will be there to watch it live.
Tony Paternoster and Dan Tucker, along with their wives, will be in Atlanta to watch the Syracuse game from the stands in the Georgia Dome. Both grew up in Syracuse and are big Syracuse fans.
Their house is even decorated. They have a big "Otto the Orange" and a "Honk for the Cuse" sign.
Dan Tucker said, "I'm really excited. This is the first time in ten years that they have been in the Final Four. And I just can't wait to go. It is going to be a great time."
Tony Paternoster said, "This is a once and lifetime opportunity to go down to Atlanta and witness it live. We were luck enough to watch it in college back in 2003, but we just got the opportunity now to see it live. So win or lose, it is going to be an awesome time."
The Syracuse Orange tip off against Michigan at 8:49p.m. on Saturday.
