And There was Weeping

and gnashing of teeth, as my beloved Bulldogs failed to win the College World Series. The only bright spot? I no longer have to hear the phrase "Cinderella story" or hear about that Detwiler kid's thumb. Geez louise, ESPN.

A little bit of housekeeping -- my apologies to Mr. Daddy's brother, Blub, whom I completely forgot yesterday. So named because he got a little, um, "husky" in adolescence. I told Mr. Daddy this morning that I was so glad I wasn't part of his family during my adolescence. I'm sure they would have zeroed in on the large gap between my front teeth. Mr. Daddy said they probably would have called me "Gappy." Awesome.

Anyhoo, I'll be back later. I have to tell you about how my first car nearly ruined any chance I had of a social life.

I barely even watched the game and I was sick of hearing about that thumb. Was it just me or did the announcer totally want Fresno to win?

And weren't they BOTH underdogs so i don't get how one cinderella story is any different than another. Blech. Sorry they lost but glad it's over.

Sorry they lost. :-)

Blub? Man, you are right. Keep me adolescent years away from that family, Gappy! ;0) Sorry about the Bulldogs. Bummer.

I only watch a few innings of each game as we ate dinner and I too am sick of Fresno being the Cinderella team. Georgia was the bottom seed, weren't they when they played Miami (the top seed) in the first game? Sportscasters are not unbiased by any means.
