With the incredibly tough draw we were handed, it may not look likely right now, but if we needed more incentive to root for Iowa State, the good folks at Buick have offered to send yours truly and one guest to New Orleans if the Cyclones make it to the Final Four.
The package includes two flights to New Orleans, a Buick (hopefully with giant rims) to drive once we get there, a hotel room, and two tickets to the Final Four. It also includes access to Buick activities like media events and parties, so if it happens, we’re going to be able to provide the WRNL community both an in-the-stands and behind-the-scenes look at the Final Four, all with that same pro-quality (Ha!), fan perspective thing you won’t get anywhere else.
So if the Cyclones are fortunate enough to get to New Orleans, I and a guest will be there to bother players and coaches with inappropriate questions, taunt Kentucky fans who had already bought their Final Four tickets, not to mention to lend our support and provide you with the best coverage we can muster, all courtesy of Buick. So, you know, let's hope Royce White's been practicing those free throws..
