Since the game didn't start until early evening, we spent the first half of the day wandering the city. I hadn't visited New Orleans since I was five and Eddie had never been, so it was fun to walk around and explore. We ate all sorts of yummy food, watched a live pregame newscast, and saw some of the sights.
When it got close to game time, we found a pizza shop where we could hang out, eat some more, and watch the game. It was an intense game, with Louisville catching up in the second half, but in the end Kentucky won! Woo! On to the final game!
Overall, our trip to New Orleans felt like a success, even more so since Kentucky ended up winning. It would've been quite depressing to drive all the way home after losing...While we headed home the next day, my parents and youngest sister stayed in New Orleans and got last minute tickets to go the final game a few days later! We watched the game from home :) Kentucky ended up winning the championship! It was so exciting...Go Cats!
