Battle of the Bluegrass: A GAW News NCAA Adventure

YMC won amazing seats in a heated, 14-hour poker game. Unfortunately, I was unable to sell the tickets for a profit and head to France.

So, I’ll be updating the readers of the adventure along the way.

Side note: I’m a Hoosier fan and have no dog in this fight.

1:30: Headed to Indianapolis
1:45: Detour to visit the nice folks at Bistro 301 downtown Louisville. (Go eat there and ask for Lindsey, she’s great.)
2:00: Wimmen had to pee. YMC needed subway. Hit on an old lady, made her day.
3:00: Stupid traffic.
3:30: Spoke with “Asian Drew” he’s a die hard Cards fan. We got a $50 bet going. I took UK.
5:00 Check in to seedy Motel 6 six miles away from town. Smells like urine and bad life choices. (GAW should is cheap and should have booked a better hotel. Damn Goliath.)

6:30: Nervously waiting on cab to get us downtown in time to pickup tickets.
6:32: Taxi arrived. Woohoo. Taxi driver predicts Cards are gonna win.

7:00: Tickets acquired. Still bummed I couldn’t sell my tickets.

7:15: Meeting silly people. More Cats fans than Cards fans out here in Indy.
9:00: Made our way to our exclusive GAW seats. The view isn’t too shabby.

9:19: Wow. That Michigan out of bounds. Right when it mattered.
9:27: Michigan for the win. That means YMC is still one of the 20 who could still win $100,000. Only 100 people left. Come on.
9:51: YMC and his fancy date are getting some fancy steak on the GAW expense. THANKS G!

10:04: That steak sandwich was amazing. That is all.

1:17: Game over. UK won the battle of the bluegrass.

All in all, YMC realized that some folks take their sports obsession far too seriously. I tried to record the final moments of the game but unfortunately that was beyond my control.
I had a great time and only wish I would have taken my sister to the this big game. She would have loved it. (Hi Julie!)

    Please don’t dishonor Goliath’s Media empire up there in INdy. Remember the high standards set by Dupac and the coverage of the Clarksville Champions.
