My First Basketball Outing of 2023
Few things make me feel more alive than sitting in Mackey Arena at my alma mater, Purdue University. Last night my husband took me to the sold out game against Rutgers. This game featured the second loudest noise level ever recorded at Mackey--220 dB. That is between a siren and a jackhammer in loudness.
My number one Boilermakers struggled with a fast and persistent Rutgers defense and followed a terrible first half with an almost comeback in the second. We came up short, but I still had an amazing evening. Any trip to Purdue makes me feel like I'm 19 again.
When a game is not going well, I often wish I could stop loving basketball like I do. But I can't stop. I was born in Indiana, which means with my first breath I inhaled basketball and it will always be part of what I am. Yes, Indiana is THAT crazy for basketball.
Next game is a fresh start, and I will be watching my Boilers on the Big Ten Network.
Wow that certainly looks like a lot of fun. Glad you tried out something new for the year. Wish the teams you're rooting for will win big games. Happy new year!

It's really wonderful that you enjoyed the game so much (even if your team didn't win), and that going to that arena makes you feel so amazing! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙
Mackey Arena is one of the best basketball venues in the USA. Not just my opinion, but that of many sportscasters. !PIZZA
