Old Oaken Bucket Pics

Ben jumping over the fire The great classic rivalry in Indiana was contested yet again on Saturday, of course I’m talking about the IU/Purdue game otherwise known as the Old Oaken Bucket game. We all headed down to Bloomington bright and early, of course traffic didn’t let us get there as early as we would have liked, Erin, John, and I missed the first half of the first quarter. No biggie though. It was a nice day, we all had fun and of course IU got their butts kicked 41-14. There’s always next year right? After half time half the people left so we headed down and got better seats, some fans eh? Here’s some pics, links go to the larger versions.

The pics on the left are as follows:

  • Hey, Hey the gang’s all here!
  • IU with good field position
  • We sat really high up the first half.
  • Really high up
  • Erin and I in our IU best
  • John and Ben looking as cute as ever!
  • Franki and Erin, our girls are tough in the cold

Looks like I’m going to have to buy a ticket

I applied for press credentials to the IU v. Purdue Bucket game under the auspices of the Fuzznik Podcast. Alas I was turned down as show below:

Dear Michael Bollman,

Unfortunately, your request did not meet our guidelines, and it is not possible to accommodate all requests.

Should you have any questions please contact our office at 812-855-9399. Thanks for your interest in IU Athletics.

So until I can figure out how to turn the podcast into somethign more legitamate I’m going to have to either pony up the dough for tickets or just enjoy it on TV like everyone else.
