We Don't Like Hinkle

New, comments

We asked what you guys thought of Hinkle Fieldhouse. You answered.

The fact that the 1954 Indiana high school basketball championship upon which the film Hoosiers is based was shot in Hinkle Fieldhouse is pretty cool. The fact that the venue hasn't been updated since then is significantly less cool. The clock is an eight-year-old kid who has been eating Pixy Stix all day counting softly to himself when he's not too distracted by the game to do so. The horn is his older sister yelling when he pulls her pigtails. The water fountains just fall off the walls (reports differ). We could go on, but we won't. You will:

That's actually a fairly benign start...

That's more like it.

That's actually a response to a completely different tweet, but I felt like it fit because what Steve said was so dang true. Sorry for ripping your stuff out of context, Katie.

And my absolute favorite:

Perfect. What did we learn today?

Yeah we do.
