Leg 2 Chicago, Illinois

First stop on the trip was to check out Marathon Sportswear run by the Piko boys, representing the Butler University classes of 1997, 2003, and 2011. They even made me my own shirt!

Benny the Bull's Ride

After we got downtown I went to the United Center to say whats up to the Michael Jordan statue only to find out they moved him inside. Apparently Benny was inside too and wasn't interested in playing.

Wrigely Field

The Hinkle Fieldhouse of Major League Baseball Stadiums - it's Wrigley Field, home of the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs!

Day 1 #Butlerbound Visits

At the heart of the Big Dawgs Tour are #ButlerBound Visits. I like to spend some time with perspective Butler students in all of the different areas that we visit throughout the year. I mean... how can they resist this face.

Meltwater Visit

I stopped by the Meltwater Chicago office today to check up our partners. Loved the mural of their college clients with Hink Represented.

It was great to catch up with Butler University Alumni Tom Powers '04 & Clay Collier '11 at the Meltwater Chicago office today.

Day 2 #ButlerBound Visits

I caught up with the Larsen family of proud Butler Bulldogs in Edison Park tonight before they hit up The Lumineers show.

Leg 1 Washington D.C.

#18 Butler vs. #1 Villanova

On Wednesday 01/4/17 The Butler Bulldogs took down the top ranked Villanova Wildcats at Hinkle Fieldhouse by the score of 66-58. This is the first time that Butler has hosted a #1 ranked team in Hinkle since facing Indiana University in 1953.

On the Road

Directly after mingling with some fans on the court following the Villanova win, my humans (Michael Kaltenmark '02 and Evan Krauss '16) and I hopped in my Bill Estes Ford BlueMobile headed east. Under my careful supervision we hit the road and arrived at the Washington Hilton in Adams Morgan about 10 hours later at 6:30 am.

Sight Seeing

US Capitol Building

On Thursday 1/5/17 I spent the morning visiting some of my favorite sights and sounds that Washington DC has to offer. First stop, the US Capitol Building.

The Jefferson Memorial

Just a short drive from the Capitol sitting on the edge of the Tidal Basin of the Potomac River lies the Jefferson Memorial. "A little rebellion now and then is a good thing..."- Thomas Jefferson. I tend to agree with that.

The Lincoln Memorial

After a stop checking out the Jefferson and attempting to sneak past the humans for a quick swim in the Tidal Basin we took on the Washington Mall. The Lincoln Memorial sits looking over all of the DC acting as a Watch Dawg for the Union. As Lincoln said, "Whatever you are, be a good one." | Who's a good boy?!

The Washington Monument

Towering over the Lincoln Reflecting pool the Washington Monument is the tallest monument in Washington DC and the worlds tallest stone structure and obelisk at 554 feet 7 11/32 inches. Kind of looks like a fire hydrant.

Look who we found strolling about the District. Tamika Catchings! One of us was in town for a party at the White House.
