The Wisconsin vs IU Game

I took a day off work, and met up with my father and brother in-law in Bloomington to watch the Wisconsin vs IU basketball game. Wisconsin came into the game ranked #2 in the country, and while IU is doing well this year, I was a bit worried about our chances. Things picked up a bit, as we were walking to Assembly Hall, I found 1 dime and 3 pennies.

I'm happy I went, because it was one of the best games I have been to in years. IU won, and the students stormed the court!

That night, my brother in-law and I went out to drink at Nick's and had a great time. On my way out, I found 2 dimes. Joe, my brother in-law, had a great line after I found my second dime, "Dimes are the new pennies!" There was probably TONS more change on the ground in that bar, but I wasn't really looking. I was enjoying the IU win with a good number of beers!

I leave you with a picture from my cellphone as the students poured onto the court!
