Purdue Sports news, notes, and links for 2/1
If you're like me, you avoided much of Twitter, ESPN, and anything else yesterday, especially the ESPN article glorifying basketball int he state of Indiana that glossed over the state's love affair with high school basketball entirely. Fortunately, it is only a game. It is over, and Purdue has another chance to redeem themselves in two weeks. Sure, I expect it to be a loss in Bloomington, but as long as it is not as bad as it was in West Lafayette it is a sign of improvement. Indiana is held to a much higher standard of success anyway.
In the meantime, let's shake it off with some other news:
Our friend J money is an avid Rangers fan, so he would be interested in New York Rangers Tickets.
Many readers are also from Chicago, so they would like Chicago Blackhawks Tickets.
The same is true for Boston Bruins Ticket.
