Happy Birthday Marty!
This past Saturday, I celebrated Marty Jones, Brad's dad, birthday in downtown Indy. Talk about a fun day. Well, not only because it was his birthday, but the Butler game was coming on later that evening. There was so much Bulldog pride downtown... you wouldn't believe it. We got down there about 2:00 pm, and we decided to go to the Slippery Noodle. The Slippery Noodle is a blues bar, and it happens to be the oldest bar in Indiana. There was a live concert going on all day. I think the name of their band was the Wise Men... ever heard of them?
The only downside to watching the game in the Slippery Noodle is that it was a Michigan State stronghold. There were more Michigan fans than Butler fans in the bar. But by the end of the game, it felt like everyone was a Butler fan. It seemed like everyone was celebrating their victory. And that was just inside the bar! To say that people were being rambunctious would be an understatement. It was absolutely insane downtown when we were walking back to the car.
Once Brad and I dropped his parents off back home, we went to celebrate with the Butler kids in Broadripple. It was a good night.
