Bobby V to be at UConn's First Night on Friday
OK, different Bobby V. The one who'll be at Gampel Friday night is the former Bobby Valentino, who's apparently a platinum recording artist. Here's some more info on Bobby V. (Doesn't he know that AC/DC had an album called 'Fly on the Wall' back in the 80's?).
The doors open at 4 p.m. on Friday, and the first 7,500 fans in attendance will receive a FREE rally towel courtesy of SNY. Also, the first 75 UConn students (with a valid ID) in atendance (at the North Entrance) will receive VIP courtside seating for the event.
