Purdue University Choir Sang National Anthem

My six word Saturday. Purdue University Choir Sang National Anthem

My grandson Michael and his teammates got the opportunity to play on the professional basketball court on Friday afternoon. We took a bus from Columbus Ohio to Indianapolis Indiana and the Indiana Pacers and Bankers Life Fieldhouse staff were most welcoming.  Since I don’t have permission to post the Middle and High Schoolers photos online, I am showing the Purdue University Choir singing of the National Anthem before tip-off of the Pro game we watched Friday evening. The Pacers played the Pelicans. (click the bold for game recap)  Marquette grad Wesley Matthews scored 15 of his 24 points in the third quarter.  Very exciting to watch him tie it up and then go ahead after the Pacers lagged behind for the entire first half of the game. Pacers won 126-111.

We got back to Michael’s school about 12:50 AM and it’s almost 2 AM now so I will sign off.

Here’s a Pittsburgh montage.  Knowing when to stop digging in the archives is the problem but it’s one AM so we’ll start with this gallery tonight.

If you enter the city from the south- Ft Pitt Tunnel and Bridge this is the view when you emerge from the tunnel,
