With a commitment to be in West Lafayette on New Years Day for a big game, a group of us decided we might as well just make a weekend out of it. Me and my date booked a room at the Union, got ready, then headed to Harry's for our first stop out on the big town.
Next we headed to the Neon Cactus where my good buddy Bruce Barker got us a table right next to himself and Dr. Kevin Morgan on bass. Bruce plays piano at a sing-a-long bar that you are guaranteed to have a great time at.
Bruce and Kevin put on a great show as always! We sang until we lost our voices but headed home at a reasonable hour to rest up for our real reason for being in town. I exchanged K for Carlos as my date and headed over to Harry's for round 2.
We let a West Virginia alum tag along with us, also known as BA. He made his way to an open section to show his school spirt. Notice the one WV fan right of center.
He even went to the student section at one point, but after some heckling, headed back to his rightful seat. Purdue showed up big time for this #4 v #6 match up and never took their foot off the gas. We looked awesome. And BA took the loss pretty well, but had to drown his sorrows back at Harry's before returning home.
Lots of good times and memories for this New Year already! Looking forward to everything 2010 has to offer me!
