Saturday was a big day. Megan and I started at Bracket Town. We wandered around there a while (so much to do!) eating our free peanuts. We got Matt Painter's autograph at the AT&T area. Paul and Lori are Purdue grads and Megan is a big Purdue fan as well. She was excited to have him sign her Purdue t-shirt. We also had our picture taken with the Duke team. :-)
After Bracket Town we walked to the concerts in the White River State Park. Luckily the rain had stopped. We saw Darius Rucker and Daughtry. Paul, Lori and Aaron met us at the concerts. Paul went home, while Lori and the kids accompanied me to the semifinals.
We were all rooting for the hometown Butler Bulldogs and they did not disappoint with an exciting first game. The first game was so intense that by the time the second game started I didn't really pay much attention to it for the first 10 minutes. I was hoping that West Virginia could top Duke. We saw Matt Painter again next to our section at Lucas Oil. Also saw Gene Keady after the game on his way to the men's room. We wanted to wait for him to come out so he could sign Megan's t-shirt but felt weird about it.
