Butler vs. Texas Tech

This is Brad (believe it or not) making my first post on our blog.  We are currently near Las Vegas at the Lake Las Vegas resort for the long Thanksgiving weekend.  We are having a great time, but have also decided that there is absolutely nothing that beats a home-cooked meal with family at Thanksgiving.

We want to send all possible good wishes to the Butler Bulldogs men's basketball team and specifically our good friend, Head Coach Brad Stevens, as they face the Texas Tech Red Raiders and Head Coach Bobby Knight in the Championship Game of the Great Alaska Shootout tonight.  This goes beyond the good friend facing off against one of our childhood heroes.  The good news is that while this kept me laying awake in bed last night, I am nearly certain that Brad is taking it completely in stride.  I hope he enjoys the experience and I have no doubt that he's got a great gameplan in his head that he is laying out for the team.

The game will be tonight at 12:30 AM EST (9:30 PM for those of us on the left coast) carried live on ESPN2.  Should Butler win, it will be their second straight preseason tournament championship.  Go Dawgs!
