Badger wins boost business at local bars

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW)-- The month of March means big business for sports bars and with the Badgers playing, fans packed Legends to watch the round of 32.

Business pretty much triples,” said David Ajdini, general manager of Legends Sports Bar and Grill.

Legends preps for the NCAA tournament by opening early and making sure every game is on

“ Not a bad seat in the house,” Ajdini said. “I made sure of that.”

And when the Badgers play, the crowd and the excitement are on a whole new level

“Not a huge basketball fan but I love watching the Badgers,” said Badger fan Steve Heideman.

Ajdini himself is a Wisconsin grad but he doesn’t really get to sit back and watch the games.

“ I opened up a sports bar because I love sports and I thought that I could watch sports and work at the same time, Doesn’t work that way” Ajdini said. “You know when you score cause everybody's high fiving and cheering.”

All of Bucky’s fans are excited for a trip to the sweet sixteen but some fans are looking even farther down the road.

“I hope they do really well and I’d love to see them get up to the Final Four,” said fan Scott Weber.

Legends expects even bigger crowds for Thursday’s game.
