It’s your humble (and less hungover) correspondent Hawkeye Elvis reporting LIVE from Indianapolis.
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating: Indy is a pretty great town. We moved from our downtown digs to a house just a little bit south of Banker’s Life, but still totally walkable.
The added bonus was having a giant-ass TV as part of the deal.
Saturday and Sunday were a study in lethargy and sloth-like behavior (aka Wisconsin basketball) as we just chilled and watched as many games as we could.
However, there was action to be taken as we scored tickets to USC/Oregon for the Sweet Sixteen Finale.
Not gonna lie, had a little bit of PTSD walking back into the building where my team’s season came to a screeching halt just a week before.
It was also jarring to see two teams with such ridiculous athleticism playing basketball for 90 minutes.
And of course Oregon had a rough night shooting because they used up all of the good-shot mojo against Iowa in the previous game. The loss did not dampen the Duck fans who made the trip.
After tomorrow night the Final Four will be set and fortunately yours truly has managed to score a seat for Saturday night!
