It Burns, Ohio State

On Saturday, Una's boss took him and a number of other friends and Badger alums to see the Madison - Ohio State basketball game. Una rode up in his boss's 'Badger Bus,' which he takes to every home football and basketball game (this is the man who gets to watch the football games . . . standing next to the coach). 

Well, #1 Ohio State went down! The Badgers defeated them and it was an amazing, amazing game that went down to the last few seconds. It was also the first time in 49 years Badger basketball defeated a number one team, the second time this year that #1 Ohio State lost to Madison (this past Fall in football, a game we luckily also attended thanks to my parents' generous friends/alums) and the biggest upset in basketball this season. After the win, the students rushed the court:

Una got to sit courtside the first half with his boss, his feet on the shiny wood and listening in on the players' conversations. 

Needless to say, he loves his job.
