Badgers Just 40 Minutes From National Championship Game; Tonight Is About Celebrating


The Badgers are only a few hours from the tip-off of the biggest game in the Bo Ryan Era.

Wisconsin is in North Texas facing the Kentucky Wildcats in the Final Four. A spot in the National Championship game is on the line.

40 minutes separate the Badgers from a shot at the second National Championship in school history. The Wildcats are the favorite, despite being an 8-seed. If the 2-seeded Badgers win, it will be considered an upset by most. Bizarre.

Although, Duke’s Coach K believes the Badgers will win it all. But even if the Badgers don’t win tonight, the season will still be remembered as a huge success.

Lets hope the Badgers can overcome Kentucky’s length and premier perimeter defense as well as their dominant offensive attack; featuring their big men down low. If the Badgers can hit threes and pull down defensive rebounds, they might just dance their way into the biggest game of them all — at the biggest stadium of them all.

Regardless, tonight is going to be a hell of a fun time. Where are you watching the game?

Whether you are in North Texas for the festivities, at a bar in Madison (or elsewhere) or enjoying the game from home — tonight is about celebrating. Of course, we at Badger of Honor, want all Badger fans to celebrate the big game safely tonight. (Call a cab if you need one, ya dingus!)

If you aren’t getting a free beer from ex-Badger Michael Finley, you should try the unofficial shot of the Wisconsin Badgers; the “Badger Bomb.”

Lets face it, many fans from Wisconsin like to enjoy alcohol from time to time. And as long as it’s done responsibly — why not?

The “Badger Bomb” is easily assembled. Simply combine 1.5 oz  American “Wisky,” 3 oz Code Red Mountain Dew and two cinnamon candies. Let the candy sit in the drink for a couple minutes before “shooting.”*

*Disclaimer, don’t choke on the candy. Crush with the bottom of your glass first if you’d prefer.

Thank me later…if you remember that is.

The “Badger Bomb” is a delicious way to celebrate the occasion of the Badgers being in the Final Four. Because lets face it, Final Fours for the Badgers are rare — this is their third all-time. I mean, of course we all hope this will happen more frequently, but there is no guarantee of that.

So lets celebrate tonight and hope for the best.

On Freakin’ Wisconsin!
