Sic 'em, bears!

Yesterday was a big day for our household. The Baylor Bears beat UT for the chance to play in the Big 12 championship--completely shocking even to the die-hard fans in this family. C still gets so animated that he scares the children! The only time our kids have ever heard their dad yell is when the Bears or the Astros are playing and the stakes are high. Also, Guilford College (where Mowgli goes to school) advanced from the Sweet 16 to the Elite Eight in Division 3 last night. UPDATE: Guilford is now in the Final Four.

Let me just say: when I married this man, I had no idea what a role sports would have in my life. Ok, honestly, I guess I had an inkling that he "liked sports," whatever that meant . . . but no reference point to understand the passion, the loyalty, the heartbreak, the obsession. In my house growing up, the only sport I ever remember being on TV was golf, which was as much nap-inducing as anything else. Anyway, let's just say that the two men in my house are very, very happy.

I remember dad having on a baseball game (probably just waiting for the golf game to come on next) and I asked who he was rooting for and he said "the grass"...
