It's Basketball Season!

I wish I could plead guilty to losing this account's password. Because that's the excuse I would use in regards to my absence on this here blog. However, I have no such excuse. Life is just running away, leaving me in its tracks, and I'm constantly trying to catch up.

Tonight I finally caught a break, and it came on a wonderful night: Season opener of IU's basketball season! Kyler, Jason and I have seats together again this year and added Jordan, Jason's lady friend. She couldn't make it tonight, and I was worried Jason was going to miss out too since the Pacers were playing. But the three of us made the trek to Assembly Hall once again to watch the Hoosiers kick off the season of our senior year. (Insert sadface).

This sums up our car ride to the game...

So Serious. Not dealing with traffic and jaywalkers very well.

Jason jamming to Journey, even though Kyler wouldn't turn up the volume.
We had great seats. Student Section. Right under the National Title banners. Maybe 15 rows back. Incredible seats to watch....Franklin College? Seriously, it was like watching high school basketball. But gosh darnit. We had great seats!

Then we saw my cousin Cory and a friend from high school Luke. They both go to Franklin and made the trip to Bloomington. We thought we had great seats. They had great seats! Second row, on the floor, across from IU's bench.
Cory, me, and Luke...I have great school spirit.
As if Shenandoah wasn't represented enough, one of the IU cheerleaders is from our high school too. I tried to take a picture of Caity, one of my sister's good friends, but the light was horrible. Maybe next time.

The game started off a little scary. Seriously, Franklin matched us point for point until about 15 points. Towards the end, I got a little distracted. I think we all did. Jason was anxious to get home and watch the DVR'd Pacer game. Kyler was busy giving Jason a wet willy...

Doesn't look like Jason minds.
And I was just ready to go home and relax. We peaced out in the second half. The last score I remember was 62-26 maybe. I don't remember for sure. Basically, we secured a "W" and headed out.

It was so great to finally get out and do something normal--something that doesn't include homework, studying, an exam, or an interview--for a little while. Starting tomorrow, it's back to the wind and grind, and it will be pretty crazy again until next Thursday. Good thing Kyler's around to keep me from losing my mind...


  1. I didn't even realize it was IU basketball season!!! How cool to run into some Shenandoah connections! Love the HOOSIERS...and you two too!!!

  2. Keeping you from losing your that is a full time job.
