The game itself was one of the best games of the year to attend. We follow the Gator basketball team closely, but it had been years since any of us had been to a game. I had forgotten how intimate the setting of a college basketball environment was compared to the NBA environment. There wasn’t a bad seat in the house and everywhere you went, you felt close to the floor where the game was played. The Gators won the game decisively on senior night so that was great to see.
We ended our evening at a place called “The Top.” We sat in the bar area and chatted for the rest of the night. I was amazed at the fact that I was able to pull in to a parking place directly in front of the entrance. In fact, my friends in the passenger-side of the car took about 5 steps from the car to the front door. It was a little strange as we were used to parking from afar when we visited anything in Gainesville.
