lucas oil stadium Home For The Final Four

Minutes after Michigan State clinched its sixth Final Four under Tom Izzo, the wife was talking about going to Indianapolis to enjoy the game.

She was surprised to find out I didn’t really want to go. I am not a Spartan. She is. I have been to about eight Final Fours; she has been to one. I would rather watch Michigan State-Butler in my basement or a sports bar.

I love the atmosphere of the Final Four. I just do not want to spend $400 for tickets to sit in a corner of an expansive arena and see stick figures running back and forth. I love to study the action. Being part of a large crowd does nothing for me.

If I went to Indy I would let her go with the family and I’d go some place downtown and enjoy it on television.

Part of it is I have been there and done that. The other issue is television brings you so close to the action that I would rather chill on the couch than sit in uncomfortable plastic chairs.

If you want to go, enjoy. I am sure it will be a fun weekend.

If you want to save a spot for me at the corner bar, I would have a much better time.

    What the heck happened to the brackets? I wish I could go to see how Izzo wins this again.

    Guys I think Coach K is as pompass as they come and becasue he is apart of what used to be an elite basketball program he is protected. When I say “used to be” I mean this, when they stopped getting recruits like Elton Brand etc….the program became mortal. They have had a couple of bad years and consequently the Brands, Dengs etc don’t go to Duke. Now they receive so much help from the refs that they are even fun to watch.
