Free tickets to tonight’s Tigers game and more Thursday news

The Memphis Tigers men’s basketball team plays UConn tonight at 8 and you might be able to score some free tickets. An anonymous donor did not want to see an empty stadium due to this week’s weather, so he or she purchased tickets to be given away. Tickets can be picked up beginning at 7 tonight, first come first serve.

In other Tigers news, @WojYahooNBA reports that former Tiger guard Will Barton has been traded to the Denver Nuggets.

In even more Tigers news, the 2015 football schedule has been posted. Notable games include a road game at Kansas, a home game vs. Ole Miss, and a first-ever meeting with Navy.

The Lenten Preaching & Waffle Shop has begun once again at Calvary Episcopal weekday lunchtimes through March 27. You can view the schedule here.

Congratulations to Paula Raiford of Paula & Raiford’s Disco for being named Fireball bartender of the month. posted a blog on tomorrow’s predicted ice event in Memphis yesterday afternoon. As of this morning, they said “it’s still in pretty good shape,” meaning the information they posted yesterday, not the expected conditions of the roads tomorrow! Freezing rain and sleet, primarily in the afternoon, with 1/4-inch ice accumulation expected. Sounds like a good day to work from home if you can, and if you can’t, keep a close eye on the radar (put it in Winterize mode) and be prepared to hit the road early if any seriously threatening ice makes a move toward Memphis.

That’s it for today. Time to brave the cold and get some lunch.
