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!)
