It has been an eventful weekend here in Indianapolis. As you know, Indy is playing host to the NCAA Final Four this year. The stage has been set for the final game this evening, between the Bruins of UCLA and the Gators of Florida. I was disappointed in George Mason's performance in the game against Florida, but they had quite a ride and knocked out some amazing team. What George Mason did will not be forgotten, and speaks to the huge heart of smaller college teams.
I didn't attend any of the downtown festivities this year. I didn't even buy a T-shirt, like I did when the finals were played in Indy in 2000. There was quite a wash-out at the end of the My Coke Concert last night, which featured performances by John Mellancamp, Carrie Underwood, Michelle Branch, and Chris Brown (no relation). A powerful storm moved through Indy (and a greater part of the Midwest) and caused some damage.
The game is set for 9:21 PM in the RCA Dome. Some people like Florida for the title, but we'll see what happens.
