As if we needed more incentive to root for the Kentucky Wildcats, the good folks at Buick have offered to send yours truly and one guest to New Orleans if Kentucky makes it to the Final Four. The package includes two flights to New Orleans, a Buick 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 A Sea of Blue community both an in-the-stands and behind-the-scenes look at the Final Four, which would be something new and entirely different for both me and our readers, especially for an event of this size and scope. Hey, maybe I'll even get to meet some of your favorite media types if it happens -- you know, Pete Thamel, Pat Forde et. al. I'll be able to personally pass along all the love that I know the Big Blue Nation feels for them -- in person!
So if the Wildcats are fortunate enough to get to New Orleans, A Sea of Blue will be there in person to lend support and to provide you with the best coverage we can muster, all courtesy of Buick. So when you see me write, "Go Big Blue" or "Go, 'Cats!" in this tournament, you know there will be a little extra zip on it!
