    Is anyone planning to attend the first 2 rounds of the NCAA Men's basketball tournament at the Dome in Minneapolis in March? I noticed that Ticketmaster has tickets on sale now.

    I wanted to, but they seemed pretty pricey. I'll just watch all the games at home in HD.

    I was thinking about going there or Kansas City. I guess it depends who ends up at each site and who I want to see. KC sold out right away, but I usually go the second day and it's easy to find tickets. Fans from losing teams will be selling their tickets.

    I enjoyed watching all of the first couple of round games in Minneapolis in 2000. Of course, we played two of the six games. And basketball was a LOT more fun to follow that season. I think when ISU's season is done, I'll be glad to be done watching basketball for another 7-8 months...

    The tickets are pricey, but it sure is a fun time.

    what do you do monday & tuesday after the BXII Chp game in OKC before wrestling starts? Enough time to come home? Or sight-see for three days on the way from OKC to STL? :wink: Make a 6 1/2 hour trip take 3 days?

    No, I usually dont' get much, but my brother got final 4 tickets when he turned 15, and my dad missed out on the lottery deal, so he got these instead. Only my dad and I are going.

    The last time I went to the dome to watch NCAA tournament teams, ISU rolled Central Connecticut State and Auburn, watched UCLA smoked the hell out of Maryland.
