And in other news...

It just needs to be said that last night’s game was the best championship game—of any sport—that I’ve seen in a long time. Seriously. I’m not a huge fan of either team, although I’ve generally liked Kansas ever since my cheerleading days when I fell in love with their “Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk” chant. But I was actually cheering for Memphis—how could you not? A Cinderella-type that actually deserves to be there. Memphis, however, fell apart in the final minutes of regulation and Kansas won it in OT.

The game (along with One Shining Moment, of course) reminded everyone why we LOVE March Madness so much! It also reminded me of one of the reasons I love my family so much—we love sports! And we love them TOGETHER :-). All of us (boys, girls, parents, babies) sat there on the edge of our seats, screaming at the television, analyzing the game and saying everything the commentators said before they said it (in my dream world, my dad replaces Dick Vitale). LOVE IT.

I would agree. It was awesome. Although, I had to squint to see through the black and white fuzz of my blurry CBS reception on my 9 inch TV/VCR combo :) I knew the ball went in, but only after the announcer started yelling. Ha. You guys are great. I'm excited for your engagement. And Ashley, there is definitely a lot to fill you in about with my life, but I probably shouldn't post it all on my blog. Girls...

Okay, are you 2 the cutest couple I have ever seen or what! I am so excited you found our blog and I love yours. Are you coming this weekend? I would totally love to come get you at the airport if you need me to. You can stay here or I can take you wherever you need to go. We are for sure going to the game Saturday so you can go with us. Let me know and we'll make plans! Matt should have my email address, I know Steve left a message for him to call me about this weekend so he should have my # also! Hope to see you soon! Jodie

I also LOVE March Madness! Too bad my bracket lost every pool I put it in. :( There were a lot of great games this year. I agree, it is so fun to watch with your family when everyone is into it! That's like Klane's fam.
