We are EN VIVO today at Banker's Life Fieldhouse, only the second time I have been to a game this year. We also have press access so we get copious amounts of free food and access to ask deep, burning questions of Matt Painter once the game is done.

Also, if you have anything for Tom Crean I can probably ask that too!
