I saw much the same thing yesterday. St. Charles elementary school in Bloomington has counted among its parents IU men's basketball coach Tom Crean, and in 2008 the school (mascot: the Hawks) started the Hawks in the Hall tournament held in Assembly Hall. So, while IU was playing at Ohio State University on Sunday, a few elementary school teams from around Central Indiana took over the arena, including my old school (they're the guys in green). It was a welcome return for me, as I'd last been on the floor as an IDS photographer during what is looking to be their last bad season for a long time. ...I graduated a year too early.
Tomorrow is Abraham Lincoln's birthday. It's also my dad's birthday, so I'll be posting photos of the real reason I was in Bloomington this weekend: a return to the Lilly Library.
