It means “The Good Land”

For the second time in the past three years Purdue is playing its NCAA Tournament games at a nearby location. Two years ago we were able to played Cincinnati in Louisville. This year we get Milwaukee, which, as we learned in Wayne’s World, is Algonquin for “The Good Land”

First of all, the Purdue Club of Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin has taken over hosting duties. They have set up and official Purdue Alumni fan Headquarters at The Brass Alley, which is directly across the street from the arena:

Milwaukee is hosting first and second round games in this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. If Purdue plays in Milwaukee during the first and second rounds, the Purdue Alumni Association plans to setup a Purdue fan headquarters at a local establishment close to the Bradley Center. We are looking for volunteers to help with the event. If you are interested in helping, please email us.

Also, Chris Forman, our basketball SID, wanted to share this information:

This week I received an e-mail from Coca-Cola that you can buy team themed bottles of Coke specifically for the NCAA Tournament as well. They have nine of the 14 Big Ten teams, so it sucks if you are a Maryland, Wisconsin, Penn State, Nebraska, or Michigan State fan.

That’s all I have for now, so if I get more I will add it to this post.
