Alright Cardinal Fans, here is the opportunity of a lifetime. Most fans can't/won't even consider this, but I feel it should be thrown out there as a possibility for this glorious weekend that is approaching.
As we all know our men's team will be playing Wichita State this Saturday night in the national semifinals (Final Four) in Atlanta. This by itself is a great opportunity for us as fans. We are within a few hours drive of the Georgia Dome. I'm expecting that we'll paint it red as we did Lucas Oil and Rupp the past few weekends. But I feel this isn't enough...
Last night our ladies won their region while knocking off #1 Baylor and Powerhouse Tennessee and are also in the national semifinals (Final Four) in New Orleans. Of course it's in NOLA! The ladies will be playing on Sunday night in the first game around 6:30. After looking into tickets I noticed that it is extremely cheap compared to the price of the men's Final Four ticket. Uppers for $55-$75.
By now you should be seeing the challenge I'm laying before you. Why waste all day in Atlanta doing nothing on Sunday? Why not support our Lady Cards in the Final Four? According to mapping websites (use yours of choice) it is only a 7 hour drive to the Super Dome from the Georgia Dome. Sure, the drive there is simple. The drive back after the game is what will be difficult. But as we've seen this tourney run from both squads Nothing Is Impossible!
I hope to see car flags waving down to NOLA on Sunday along with me. Could be one magical weekend folks!
