Hey, I'm a newly registered member and BU fan from Italy. In another thread I was asked why I am a Butler fan, so this is my story, I'll try to make it as short as I can. In 2006 my fellow countryman Andrea Bargnani was the first Italian ever drafted in the 1st round, so I started to watch Toronto Raptors' games. Leo Rautins was one of the voices of the TSN telecast, he was talking about his son Andy in the NCAA and I ended up watching some Syracuse games too. One of them was the Sweet Sixteen matchup against Butler (never heard about them before). When I first saw the Dawgs playing, I instantly fell in love with them because of their smart play, toughness and stingy defense. Since then, I discovered The Butler Way, watched a lot of games (spending a lot of night hours awake to do that), bought and read David Woods' Underdawgs, even named my Court Rivals team after the book (and actually won 2 championship games!)... Well, even if I'm overseas, I feel I'm a Bulldog anyway! What about you? I'm sure most of you are either currently enrolled at BU or alumni, but I'd like to know how did you become Butler fans.
