Ahh…finally…Hoosier Hysteria

IU Hoosiers!

Yep, this post has nothing to do with writing, but everything to do with a long-time love of mine…Indiana University basketball.  Tonight was the big event to kick off the basketball season…I couldn’t go (even though I live in Bloomington), but they streamed it so I did get to sit in front of my computer for a couple of hours and enjoy the festivities.

For you non-basketball fans out there, Indiana is pre-season #1!  That’s a pretty big deal!  It’s an especially big deal when you consider where the program was just four short years ago.  Hoosier Nation has pretty high expectations for this team and it looks like the kids on the team have worked hard in the off-season.

I had to work today and Hoosier Hysteria was what just about everyone was talking about.  If you’re not from Indiana, you just don’t understand how huge basketball is…how we grow up living and breathing Indiana basketball…how we bleed cream and crimson…how we find ourselves humming the Indiana school song at totally random moments.

Anyhow…I know I’ve been focused on writing of late…but this sure was a fun way to spend the evening!!  Go Hoosiers!
