Hoosier Hysteria was Friday, and it was pretty awesome. I got to Assembly Hall around 3:30pm to meet my friends that have been waiting in line since 5:00am that morning. Basketball is definitely big at IU and us fans take it serious. There weren’t as many people in attendance this year compared to last year. We were near the front of the line and since it was general admission seating, we got great seats seven rows up from the court. The basketball program that night consisted of introductions of the men’s and women’s teams, a three-point contest, another shooting competition, a dunk contest, and a short scrimmage. After the scrimmage, players signed autographs. I bought a poster to get signed, like last year. I got a total of eight signatures from the players. After that, we got Subway and proceed to the apartment to rest up for the next day.
Saturday morning we woke up and went to Goodwill. They were having a half-off sale all day. When we got there, a lined had formed just to get into the store before it opened! Alex and Colin are avid “Goodwillers” who go and find good deals often. I bought a couple of books and a computer keyboard. In the middle of our three stops at each Goodwill we had breakfast at Buffa Louie’s. I didn’t realize this wing place had breakfast. I had a biscuit and gravy chicken sandwich with tots. It was pretty amazing and a great start to the morning.
After Goodwill and breakfast, we went to the IU home football game. We played Penn State and beat them 44-24. It was a fantastic game and couldn’t ask for better action. The weather could have been a bit more sunny. It was raining off and on throughout the game.
After the football game, we went back to the apartment to shower and change into dry clothes. The rest of the night consisted of eating a spaghetti dinner, which was delicious (thanks Tyler), watching a scary movie called VHS, and just enjoyed the company. We went back to Alex’s dorm to watch Miley Cyrus on Saturday Night Live. It really wasn’t that funny at all. She is not a good actress.
Finally, I headed back to the apartment to get some sleep before I headed back home Sunday and watched the Colts in a great game against Seattle.
It was a great Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoosier weekend!
