I started my 32nd year at ESPN at the Yum Center, or as I would call it, "Pitino's Palace".  The building was even better than advertised. It is a gorgeous new facility that was jammed with 22,000 for the first regular season men's game.  Butler came into town, hot off their incredible run last season in the NCAA tourney.  Louisville dominated the game with its pressure defense and shooting three's.  The game was ugly and filled with a lot of fouls, but Louisville walked away with a "W" and that's all the fans cared about.
