I live in an area of rabid fans for both teams. The students are all wound up this week with the rivalry. I will be glad when it is over and the full moon wanes. My fantasy forests have an unusual number of horseshoes and bears in them this year!
I felt just a little silly this morning listening to NPR 's piece on Molly Ivins and shedding tears for a woman I never met.
One of our former students who will be the name in basketball for the next 15 years played in a game last night after being a pallbearer for his best friend. What a great human being this boy is....well, not a boy anymore. I think he will be a credit to his sport and will definitely be a role model youngsters can look up to.
