Dawgs are Dancin
The Butler Bulldog's names were called as a 4 seed in the South Region and were sent to Milwaukee to face the Winthrop Eagles. The Dawgs would end up defeating Winthrop 76-64 in the first round and Middle Tennessee 74- 65 in the second. Unfortunately due to NCAA rules I was not allowed on the court. That did not stop me from making the trip.
Down Goes Nova...AGAIN!
Butler Bound Visits
The Philly Cheesesteak Challenge
Pat's King of Steaks and Gino's Steaks have both been claiming to have the best Cheesesteak in town for year's. I decided to take matters into my own hands. The winner? ME.
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.
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
#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.
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.
