Sweet New Orleans Weekend and some housekeeping!

Although our beloved Cougars did not advance to the Elite Eight(darn it) the boys enjoyed the Sweet 16 experience tremendously!

Some of the highlights were: being interviewed on the Doug Wright Radio Show on their way to the game (thanks to a Melandboys reader MaryAnn:), being interviewed/ photographed with their awesome sign by several reporters before the game started, chatting with Al and TJ Fredette (Jimmer's family) while waiting in line picking up their tickets, slapping Jimmer's hand as he left at halftime, cheering until they were hoarse at all 3 March Madness games in New Orleans:), and downing some powder sugared ' biegnets' in the famous Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter. They also enjoyed pizza, swimming, and just hanging out together in the Big Easy!

We were heart broken with the lose but we still LOVE our Cougars and can't wait to see Jimmer in the NBA next year! Thanks for a great season guys!

And did you notice that I am working on some tabs up top? They are not done yet, but I am excited about doing a little" housekeeping" and getting organized here at Melandboys:) Stay tuned!

Have a wonderful week!

What a fun experience for your boys! I'll bet they had a miserable blast. :) What a fun dad Brad was for taking them. And what a self sacrficing mommy to stay home with the little boys and let them go. Can't wait to see you in a couple weeks!
