Mizzou Wins!


36-28.

Damn, that was a hard-fought victory.

A belated congratulations for a great season to the KU Jayhawks. Though it's hard to believe - given my previous post - were it any other year, I would be right there with y'all. I'd so much rather see someone like KU in a championship game than someone like Oklahoma or Texas, who have seen more than their share of title games. (No offense, honey. Hook 'em, mean it!)

And, in my regrets for my pre- and during-game anxiety, I am very sorry for calling KU Coach Mark Mangino "Mark ManGINA." That was not called for. (However, it was a tincy bit funny. Might have been the wine.)

For this night only, and in tribute...Rock Chalk, Jayhawk. See you, and your badass quarterback, next year.

Now...The Man has gotten us tickets for the Big 12 Championship Game against Oklahoma next weekend in San Antonio. Wonder what we're doing with our kids?

OK, so in drunken joy Shannon tried to send Lee a text message that read "best football weekend ever." If it went through, I had no part in that.

But damn. Best. Football. Weekend. Ever.

I didn't receive it. Must have been a little too much drunken joy. :-p

You have tickets?! That's awesome. Have fun.

I'm a little down today. But what can you do?

Hi Mags,
Thanks for your promotion of the game. Wouldn't have seen any of it otherwise. I started to phone in order to thank you, but the timeout was winding down and didn't want you to miss a second of it. Anyway, we watched the entire last quarter. Mizzou (& KU) have come so far in so long a time! YOU were there for them all this time, and you so TOTALLY DESERVE this!

I will be praying to the football gods that the tigers beat the EVERLOVINGHELL out of the stupid Sooners. Hate them with a fiery passion. I am very jealous y'all are going to the game. What FUN!

Thanks for last night. Tell Lee I'm sorry about adding to the Chill factor at your house.

Tee hee.
