Just for Fun and Bloomington IN

I grew up in Bloomington IN. It is the home of Indiana University.

the first timelapse is of Assembly Hall. It is before a game and as it fills up with people!

The next video walks you through the many sites of the city.

Many years ago my father and I used to go to Assembly hall to watch Basketball games. We were both Indiana University fans!

I would keep score and at halftime, I would report to my dad how many points each of the players had.

(the year was 1975). I don’t know why i reported the stats the way I did for the game. I said the scores for each of the players and then informed my father that he had stood up yelling 14 times int he first half. For every game he and I went to, he always asked how many times he stood up!

  2. Looks like a very nice town and I think I would like it. Yes, we used to play sports and Dad arranged us to play field hockey, he played any sport he could, cricket, field hockey and squash. We were restricted to field hockey and athletics..

      • In Dillon Montana, there is only one weekend that the town really seems like a town. It goes from a very small population of 4,261to around 30,000 people. It’s quite a transformation and it’s been going on for at least 50 years. Kind of interesting to experience.
