March Sadness

This past week I have been unable to blog as much as usual for only one reason: March Madness, which I have now decided to name March Sadness because of Butler’s recent loss. I was fortunate to be able to go to both Butler games held in Lexington this past week.

To describe Thursday’s game vs Bucknell in one word would be excitement. I had never been to a March Madness game so it was awesome to see the team I love play in that kind of atmosphere. In typical fashion, Butler gave me a heart attack for most of the game, but we still got the win, which was exciting. The moment the buzzer went off I knew that I would be back in Lexington for Saturday’s game vs Marquette.

Driving down on Saturday to Lexington was nerve racking to say the least. I could not stop thinking about the game, and on top of that we had to sit through an entire game before we even watched ours. We played well. I am in no means disappointed in our team. It was just a really good game all around. Some of the calls I find debatable, but what’s done is done. It is really hard to talk about the outcome of that game considering how close it was.

As I usually try to do I think of the positives that come from losing the game to Marquette. For one, my grades will go back up. Two, I will not be focused on attending games anymore, instead just watching them. Three, I will be saving a ton money by not traveling to follow the team everywhere they go.

So I guess now I’m cheering on Louisville, because while in Lexington their fans always said they would be cheering for us. Plus even though I didn’t really know him a guy on the Louisville team went to my high school, so why not have them go all the way? Either way I’m still a proud Bulldog!
