NCAA Tournament in Chicago: #15 Akron vs. #2 Notre Dame

19 March 2011 No Comment

I had waited for this weekend for awhile. I had two days where I could get out of the house, without Dylan, for the NCAA Tournament. The first game on Friday was scheduled for 12:40 pm so I left the house as soon as I could to get down for the first game.

Beg, Borrow and Deal
I walked in front of Gate 3 and found a family who had an extra ticket. I offered $20 for the $80 face value ticket and held firm on my price point. I told them I bought tickets last year in Milwaukee for $20 for each session. Of course, he did not like that argument but eventually agreed on the price.

#15 Akron vs. #2 Notre Dame
Notre Dame took a four point lead into halftime but scored the first nine points of the second half to cruise to a 69-56 second round victory.
