The Huskies team hotel here at the NIT is on Times Square and right along the route of the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, which is passing as I type this.
Although, also as I type this, the Huskies are wrapping up practice at Madison Square Garden. (They actually were supposed to be off the floor by now, but Texas A&M, which had the 10:30 a.m. local time slot, is either a no-show or caught in parade traffic. In any case, Coach Romar is using the extra time by keeping his team out on the court longer than planned.)
The practice times were assigned on the basis of last night's results, however, the Huskies are likely going to be able to get back to their hotel before the entire (very long) parade passes. And once they get there, they should be able to view it in style, as a special viewing area has been set up for the NIT teams.
As for me, my hotel is about a half block off the parade route and I was able to duck out to catch a few passing balloons including Ronald McDonald and Shrek and a few others. Very cool to see in person after watching on TV for virtually every Thanksgiving I can remember since childhood.
