I just told Katie a week ago that I really miss going to UW basketball and hockey games in these cold months here in Madison. If you have been to more than a few of these, you know what I mean. There's nothing like walking from the cold weather into the warm confines of a UW Athletics event. And this week I was offered tickets for three events:
Friday - Women's Hockey (in a suite)
Friday night - Men's Hockey (in a suite)
Saturday night - Men's Hockey (student section)
Here's Katie and I at the Nitty Gritty after the women's game. We went out with a bunch of her co-workers.
After this, I went to Ian's and met Kirk and Matt for some pizza before the men's game. The Badgers are playing the Gophers who are ranked #1 in the country. Kirk got us into a suite through his work. Life is good in the suite.
And tonight I'm taking Katie downtown for a burger and beer before the 2nd men's game tonight. Oh, thanks for asking (Todd). The Badgers won 2-1 in an exciting game that went down to the final shot w/ 8 seconds left. This makes for excellent drama tonight.
