(Hypothetical) Sunday Night Meetup - Any Ideas? - 2 Extra Tickets Tonight

Submitted by bigdemo on March 31st, 2018 at 1:39 PM
Trying to make plans for a VERY hypothetical if all goes well party for tomorrow night. Not familiar at all with San Antonio. Anyone local have an idea of a bar that I can contact that would be fun and easy to get to?
As always, HomeSure buys the first round of beers. Go Blue!

We just ended up with two extra tickets for today. Section 322 Row 10. Will do $375 for the pair. Stubhub has $80 in fees for two tickets, so that makes them cheaper than the cheapest seats on there right now. Can transfer by Flash Seats easily.
Email me if you want em, mgoblog (a) homesurelending.com
Go Blue!!

Timely piece giving the current Knicks Burke and Hardaway's reflections on their Final 4 (confirming the block was CLEAN), as well as good advice for the team as they enter battle tonight.

I'm not a hoops guru by any means, but I can say this, that Xaviers play tonight is the most key piece to winning, for if he negates Custer, then they will be crushed.  Custer is their ringleader, and this is the first team weve played that is excessively dependent on one player.  This is Simpsons time, and all the pundits who left him off the All-whatever teams will reflect.   

I digress....have been thinking this since February, that this is our year to win it all.  Was there as a frosh season ticket holder in 1989, (and then again as a fifth year senior with the Fab Five....)  and this team has that oneness again.

Reading the link on Jay Wright turning Villanova into VILLA f'ing NOVA made me wonder. I am a pretty big college basketball fan, but I get the sense that prior to this year they and he didn't get a ton of credit/publicity.

Maybe it was the turmoil/turnover in the Big East the past few years?

Is it the lack of 5 star NBA prospects? Randy Foye and Kyle Lowry played there over a decade ago, not a lot since.

Maybe their lack of Tournement success (Nat'l Champ not withstanding)? In the two years prior to their NC, they were a combined 62-8, but got bounced in the 2nd round each year, last year they didn't get past the first weekend either.

I feel like they came out of nowhere for that title, but I guess not.

I don't know. Hard to argue with his success at a high level, does anyone else get that feeling as well? Maybe I just overlooked them and Wright's coaching acumen.
