Not So Sad

Michigan lost by a point, after a missed shot at the buzzer last night. They’ve officially been eliminated from the Big Dance, having made it all the way to the Sweet 16 – way farther than anyone imagined they would go.

But that’s it now: show’s over, folks. Another year has come and gone, and they came close – but they weren’t my dream team. Not yet, at least.

I’m sure they’re feeling pretty lousy today about their loss. And who can blame them? It was a heartbreaker. But, like my sister said about what they did manage to accomplish:

“It’s a miracle they’re even alive, so I’ll take it.”

And, there’s someone today who should be feeling much worse about his loss than them:

This schmuck.

If you’re looking for the biggest loser today, this guy is it.

(Wait – was he on that show? No… I think I actually watched that one…)

March Madness may be over for me, but in HIS failure, I feel the tide of our sour year finally starting to turn for the better; a turn toward “winning”, to quote the schmuck…

    Yep, that Michigan team is a miracle, and a winner by any standards. Defying the odds counts as a win in my book. And there is more to come. As for the schmuck, I hope this is just the first of many defeats he will experience in office. Because, in life, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. And win you lose too much, you are “Fired!” Go Blue!
