Please fasten Card gear and put all trays in an upright position. Â The biggest rivalry game of the year is about to take off Â and you will be a virtual passenger in a brand new naughty Volvo S60 participating in Volvo’s Biggest Fan of the Big East alma mater weekend experience through the sights andÂ sounds of myself and my beautiful wife. Â All of the above items, as well as a weekend in one of the 300HP all-wheel drive S60’s, were generously provided by Volvo and Cake NYC in order toÂ help me document our experience coming back to town to take in a game, scratch that, THE game of the year. Â Over the nextÂ couple of days I will be sharing pregame festivites, in-game sights, and (hopefully) the thrills of a victory with the CardÂ Game readers.
