It's a day most of us thought would never, never, ever come. Wisconsin is ranked No. 1 in this week's AP Basketball Poll. When I heard the news, I had lots of memories of the days when Bucky still played in the Fieldhouse and my dad used to take me on game days to buy "partially obstructed" seats up in the rafters so we could watch the Badgers play. Sometimes our team surprised us back then -- like the time we beat Michigan at home by a good 20 or so points the same season the Wolverines went to the NCAA Championship Game with the "Fab Five." But mostly it was just about the atmosphere, watching the band and the smell of stale popcorn. Don't get me wrong, I love the comfort of the Kohl Center and the fact that we have a winning team, but the old days were fun, too. I must admit that in the excitement, I bought Gavin a new Bucky T-shirt yesterday and hope we are lucky enough to get tickets to take him to a game someday, win or lose. GO BIG RED!!!
