Hello everyone!

Today I am going to the first leg of a series of college basketball games that I am planning to attend in the next month.  As many of you know, I live in Nashville, Tennessee, which is just hours away from many of the most legendary college basketball venues in the country.

Today, I am proud to say I will be attending what kenpom.com says will be the second most thrilling contest of the day: St. Mary's at Vanderbilt.

I also am forming plans to attend games at Indiana University, the University of Kentucky, Belmont, and Lipscomb.  Those last two and the one today are easy for me because they are right here in town!  Nashville has four Division 1 basketball teams within its city limits (Vandy, Belmont, Lipscomb, and Tennessee State) and another three within an hour's drive (Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State, and Austin Peay).  So, at least its got that going for it!

After attending these games, I will be delivering a report to you on my experiences.  I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I will enjoy attending the events!
