Geoff, an old friend of mine sent me a pretty good joke. I hope there's some truth in it :) A win is a win in my book and things evened out after all was overturned and fumbled in the Steelers/Colts game. So, I'm sure my fellow Steeler fans will enjoy this and all I can say for those Colt fans is, tough luck.
Peyton Manning, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Colts flag in the window. "This house is yours for eternity, Peyton." said God.
My heart nearly stopped with a little over a minute left in the Steelers/Colts playoff game today. This was the kind of game that put fans of both teams through an emothional rollercoaster ride right up to the last thirty seconds.
It's an annual tradition at the Montessori Childrens House. Each year the staff interviews the kids and Amy and I are intrigued by Owen's responses this year. If you could be an animal, what would you be? A Tiger, because I like cats. If you could be any age you wanted, how old would you be? Five, cause I want to grow up. What do you like most about yourself? My brother, and playing by myself. My brother has an "rrr" in his name. Where is your favorite place in your home? My room.
Note: I lost a significant portion of this post at some point. I rewrote what I thought I had written.
I grew up in a house that always had a dog. Alphie was the first in a line of terrier/poodle mixes in our household. Clifford came next and is the dog I remember always being there waiting for me after school.
You know, on the way over, I decided to listen to a rock station to get into the mood. And I heard a line in one of those tribal passages that I thought was the keynote for this evening. "Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight."
