Do you remember when I announced this sponsorship by our good friends at Buick earlier this month? Well, it has now actually happened, and Buick is sending me and my spouse south to New Orleans to participate in the Final Four festivities, including all the games, media events, parties, and a Buick Regal GS to drive around while we are there. All SB Nation lead bloggers who's teams made it to the Final Four will also be afforded this opportunity, so Mike Rutherford of the Card Chronicle, and the bloggers from Rock Chalk Talk and Along the Oletangy (whom I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting) will be joining me there.
Of course, my primary job will not be partying and drinking and schmoozing with media types and other notables, although there will be some of that. My primary purpose is to cover the Final Four that Kentucky is proudly a part of with the best, most in-depth information flow I can. So those of you not on Twitter may want to sign up and follow me @ASeaOfBlue in order to get all that stuff, and also check our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/GoASoB for the latest stuff from there. Those are much easier to update than the blog, and will be more real-time than the blog probably will, just due to the nature of the platform. I'll be working closely with our co-bloggers on A Sea of Blue to make sure that as much stuff as possible gets to you timely. It's the kind of job everyone would love to have, I'm sure, but I'll do my best on behalf of every member of our community.
It's a real honor and a treat to get this chance, and I'd like to thank our sponsor, Buick, for their incredible generosity. Hopefully this will give all our readers an extra insight into the tournament workings, what's happening in NOLA, and all the great things that come with being around a Final Four, something I have never done in my life.
Go 'Cats, and thanks to all of you for reading. Without you, this would not have been possible.
