NDBB Beth Notre Dame's home opener for basketball was today, and Randy had extra tickets. Seventh row, baby!

The arena at Notre Dame was renovated this past year, and they did a fantastic job. This is where the basketball and hockey games are played. All new seating...gone are the color-coded seats. I went to many a concert in this venue, and I have lots of great memories. I saw my first concert there. I believe it was AC/DC opening for Aerosmith. Or was it Boston? I can't remember...not because I was wasted (I was a good girl in high school...feel free to laugh), but because it was...well, that was some time ago. Ha! No, I'm pretty sure it was AC/DC opening for Aerosmith. That was when Bon Scott was still alive and Aerosmith was still wasted. AC/DC blew them off the stage. Oi! Oi! Oi!

Anyhoo, the new digs are really nice. We played University of North Florida. A smaller school, and I think they were definitely outmatched. At one point, we were up by over 30 points, but it ended up being I think a 20-point win. What was that? Did I just hear someone say that basketball is...boring?!

Hey! You want a piece of me?

Basketball hoop It's only our state sport. Well...I don't think that's official, but it might as well be. Even 5-foot me likes to go out and shoot hoops once in a while.

Being at a game, hearing the horn and the squeak of shoes on the court...the sound of the ball on the hardwood floor...the swoosh of a three-pointer drained with nothing but net. The thud as a player hits the hardwood, the cleanup guys coming by with their mops to clean the sweat off of the floor.


It's all so beautiful. I'm a Hoosier. What can I say? Oh, and I got a couple of awesomesauce green T-shirts.

My favorite player is Luke Harangody, #44. He's a senior, so he'll be gone next year. I really hate to see him go, but I think he has a future in the NBA. He's a pretty good-sized guy, a power forward. What I like about him is that he's big, but he's also fast, and has great ball-handling skills. (Shut up with your dirty minds!)

I'm mainly focused on football at the moment, but it was a lot of fun to get back into basketball. I look forward to seeing a couple more games in person, and seeing what the Irish can do this year. A video and then a slideshow. Action...action...action!

And one more.

I'm so happy.


  1. I have never liked basketball though i do like football. Glad you got to go and have a good time!!

  2. Being a blue-blooded Kentuckian, I love college basketball, too.

    Seems like you have been having too much fun lately. Do you ever sleep, woman??


  3. It was a lot of fun, two more basketball game and two hockey game sets of tickets ordered, love our Irish sports.

  4. Did you pick up those shirts at that new esoteric boutique?

    It just opened up, a place called Oh Little Gown Of Beth Lá Hem.

  5. I'm glad you said "feel free to laugh" in your second paragraph because I did! LOL

    Glad you had a wonderful time.

  6. Since I'm from Kentucky, college basketball is definitely my sport of preference. For pro sports, I love baseball. Glad you had so much fun at the game!


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
