BCS dreams dashed for Hoover family

Posted: Updated:


Margaret and Bryan Kelley were hoping to give their children the family vacation of a lifetime, a trip to Pasadena to watch the Auburn Tigers take on the Florida State Seminoles. 

"We're really hurting for them because we built this up and now we can't do it," said Bryan Kelley, an Auburn Alum. 

They traveled to Atlanta Saturday only to be informed that their flight was canceled because of bad weather. 

*Now we're here and the game is 3000 miles away," said Kelley. 

Thinking fast, the Kelley's booked new airline tickets leaving out of Nashville.  The flight would eventually get them to Las Vegas.  From sin city, they would drive to Pasadena, but the travel headaches for the family only got worse.  

"We made it from Nashville to Charlotte and when we arrived in Charlotte there was a mechanical difficulty with the jet way hooking up the airplane and we were stuck for a little more than a half an hour," said Kelley. 

The problems haven't been cheap.  The Kelley's spent more than $4,000.00 on the trip. The family is pretty frustrated by what happen but realize there was little they could do.
