When I moved to Indiana everyone told me I HAD to watch the movie Hoosiers before I came here so that I knew what to expect (they also recommended Children of the Corn but we won’t go there). I still don’t really understand what a Hoosier is but I really do love basketball.
Our family enjoys going to sporting events and basketball is my favorite. Perhaps it was the time I spent on my high school team, warming the bench, or maybe it’s the fast pace and back and forth of the game. I also like all of the little competitions and sideshow events that go on during the game at the college and professional level.
Have you ever taken your family to a basketball game at Butler? We took Lulu and we loved the excitement of all of the fans around us. There’s really nothing like school spirit and community pride! The price is right too! Tickets start at $9 for kids and $15 for adults. There are concession stands to get food, street parking is free and the view is pretty good no matter where you sit. Keep in mind that seating is on wood benches and there are no seat backs. I wasn’t prepared for this but it wasn’t bad at all. You can find ticket information and the schedule on the Butler Bulldogs web site!
