I am not in denial. I realize that Brad left in the middle of summer and went to the Celtics. However there is one piece of Brad that was still left behind in my possession. That one piece of Brad would be a giant size cardboard version of his head.
If you watched Butler on College Gameday when we had the amazing game versus Gonzaga then you probably saw the giant size cut outs of people like Brad Stevens, Gordon Hayward, Matt Howard, Blue 2, and so on. I was lucky to get a cut out of Brad Stevens. However, it is ridiculously large so finding a place to keep it has been difficult. This is why many times I end up putting Brad in a window. Some people love looking up and seeing Brad staring down at them. While others are freaked out by it. Either way I’ve enjoyed the time with my Brad Stevens cut out.
This past semester I lived in apartment village, which are apartments on Butler’s campus. In our window that looked out over the Butler bowl I decided to place my Brad Stevens cut out just to freak some people out, and also so Brad could continue to look over Hinkle.
A couple weeks ago we got a lot of snow! After a couple days of snow people started to throw snowballs at Brad, so my roommates and I thought why not put a sign in our window with “Can You Hit Brad?” While we thought this was an amazing idea it scared us most of the time because we never knew when someone would start throwing snowballs at our window. Nonetheless it provided my roommates and I with some entertainment as well as Butler students, visitors for basketball games, and whoever else decided to join our fun.
It was good while it lasted, and unfortunately I can’t take Brad to Australia. So goodbye Brad, who knows when he’ll pop up next!
