***UPDATE - The game isn't until around 8:30 pm so I BOUGHT TICKETS! Yes, I'm going to the Baylor/UConn game!!
I must admit when my kids' basketball season was over I thought I wanted to be DONE watching basketball for a while...like, til next year. However, I have been watching some March Madness. And mad it is! There have been so many upsets. I was really hoping my Baylor Bears (the men) would beat Duke Sunday night. I had to go to church early so we were taping the 2nd half of the game at home. I stinkin' wore my Baylor shirt to church (and, like a good pastor's wife never, ever wear a tshirt to church on Sunday night) and plugged my ears if anyone attempted to talk about the game around me. They didn't win. It was a heartbreak.
But, BUT, then the Lady Bears had their shot at the Blue Devils and, in case you haven't heard, WON! With 3 true freshmen on the floor! Yes, yes, one of those freshmen happens to be 6'8" but basketball is a team sport. It was an exciting game and I watched all of it. Basketball, again. I immediately called my mom (my parents are ticket season holders to the Lady Bears' games) to check on tickets to the final four game. Jessica and I wanted to go. That is, until I realized it will be on Easter Sunday. And that stinks! However, most likely, their game will be against UConn -- undefeated for eternity. Ok, hyperbole, but they haven't lost a game in a really long time. Johnny said they have to lose eventually - someone will beat them. Why not the Lady Bears? I only told Jessica she is not allowed to wear her UConn shirt this weekend. And, I am not kidding. At all.
So, I've got more basketball in my future. If the Lady Bears do win on Sunday I absolutely WILL be in San Antonio for the final on Tuesday. I hope they win!
