    I'm from NY so if I were to go to Indianapolis in the summer I'd probably see a Fever game at the Fieldhouse.

    IUPUI, Un. of Indy, and Butler are all in Indy.

    Butler would be a good place to visit. You could visit Hinklefield house. I don't know if they're open, or they have tours, but it has a lot of Indiana basketball history.

    I think hitting the Indy Zoo would be fun. I haven't been there forever and I really want to go back so.....

    If you want to go a bit outside of Indy, you could also travel to New Castle IN, about 30mins east of Indy off of I-70, which has the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.

    yes. unfortunately i just got an e-mail from orlando magic information office informing me that this years 'Orlando Summer League' is not opened to fans and spectators due to the danger of being exposed to the H1N1 virus. man, is this new-flu that serious in the states(america continent?) i saw this documentry film the other day saying this mutant-virus comes out every 40 years(first was the spanish-flu - around 1918, and asian flu -around late 1950's). can't stop me from going to the states though.

    oh the point is, due to the change of plan i'll be traveling, lasvegas - chicago - indianapolis - st.louis - memphis and some other cities in the south.

    A 'mullet,' in this case, is a hairstyle......but I don't know who Duke is referring to.

    If you're going to St. Louis, try to catch a Cardinals game if you're into baseball. I've been to every city in the midwest for a baseball game plus a Yankee's, Mets, and others.

    St. Louis is the best atmosphere for me. Great place to see a baseball game.

    The news isn't as crazy and obsessive about it as they were maybe about a month ago, but you never know if it's still out there somewhere.

    A suggestion for going to Chicago is go see a Sox game. (Favorite MLB team )

    Some big country music star is coming to town soon and he has a mullet. You can't come to Indiana and not enjoy a country concert.

    That is a horrible suggestion. The Great American Ball Park dwarfs anything U.S. Cellular Field can offer.

    Butler players normally don't make it into the league, but they are one hell of a NCAA team. A great mid-major program.
