A grey day here. The state song claims the "skies are not cloudy all day" but they often are up here in the northeast corner. Our basketball team is out of the tournament even though the long suffering husband and I traveled to Omaha to cheer them on in person. The seats reserved for a few lucky faculty members were within a half-dozen rows of the top of the arena, which started the event with a taste of the disappointment that was to come. Good thing we brought the new binoculars!
I have always made fun of people who travel long distances and spend big money to sit in the top rows of a venue and watch dots play basketball...a comfy chair in front of a HD TV makes so much more sense. I kept thinking Who is the dummy now? At least I got to help boo the governor when his face appeared on camera. To clarify: we were not booing his shirt, we were booing his policies and wrong-headed leadership of our state.
