final four

I have to share about my final four experience. I'm so excited to cross one off my "To Do by 30" list! I scored a couple tickets this week for my mom and I to attend the Final Four. We headed to Indy for the Big Dance and had such a great time! If you love basketball, college basketball, I reccommend going. There were tons of activities for kids before the game and just so so many people there for the event (probably aorund 43,000). It was really neat to be there, having watched it on TV pretty much every year of my exsistance (give or take a few years).

We scanned the crowd for any famous people and only came up with a few: Adam Morrison, Lute Olson, Jim Boeheim, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Peyton and Ely Manning, and various other people we may have recognized, but couldn't put a name with the face. I was hoping to see Roy Wiliams and Reggie Miller while mom was scouring the crowds for the ever popular Coach K. Even though we were up in the rafters, we could see every place develop and used our binocs to see the closer details. I'm already thinking about whether or not I can go next year. FYI - I'm cheering for UCLA in the Championship - Go Bruins! Image hosting by Photobucket

I have only heard of 3 of the 6 "famous" people you saw... is that bad?

i know, it was so much fun. too bad the bruins didn't keep the score closer. my favorite part is the "one shining moment" at the end of the CBS coverage.
