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:

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…

FIRST EVER.

And if that WEREN’T ENOUGH…

They did it after SURVIVING A F#@$ING PLANE CRASH. The WHOLE TEAM! The goddamn plane crashed while they were taking off for Washington D.C. to go play in said conference tourney. And they STILL went on to win it as the ultimate underdogs.  Continue reading

Fall Classics

While THE Fall Classic didn’t quite turn out as I’d hoped, our October still ended on quite a lovely note.

We wrapped our two-week house vacation by going to San Diego this past weekend, to visit John and Ashley.

Wait a minute — you don’t know who John and Ashley are? Then read my greatest blog post ever.

Anyway, despite having to watch Michigan AND the Tigers lose, we still had an epically good time. Which tends to happen with these two, and especially when you’re someplace like San Diego. And it’s perfectly sunny. And 90 degrees.

There was a little of this:

Pacific Beach, San Diego

Beach + Sunshine
