Watching sports makes me nervous… and I wonder what this says about me, because it is half-time of the Oklahoma-Florida National Championship and I am stressed. Of course Meg is from Oklahoma, so I am supporting her team. But really I am not that invested, since normally I root against the Sooners (while they repeatedly annihilate Missouri).
Still, twice OK – horrible initials, neither good nor bad – has had the ball inside the ten and been stopped. Once fourth and one, then an interception with only a few seconds left. Seriously, I am going to have an attack! Could you imagine what would happen if the Royals ever made it to the playoffs – or worse the World Series… my heart would explode!
Two theories: Cheering for perennial losers has left me unable to cope with the stress of success. Or for my own sake I have decided to root for a team that will never win – so my heart will not explode…
Anyhow, to be safe, I am going to bed (Tell me who won on Sunday!). And I am pretty sure it is my first theory, because I think this may be the Royal’s year (hey, look at the Falcons!)
I heard from Jeremy, who is my missionary friend in Iraq. He thanked us for the donation we raised through the Plunge t-shirts. Plus, he was able to let us know that our funds are going to help a teenager named Kadeeja. I will try to keep you updated on all that happens: when she travels, the date of her surgery, and the details of her recovery!
