Lady Vol's Biggest Comeback Ever

I got up this morning to the alarm clock (even though it's Saturday). Cheryl and I went to the breakfast buffet at Big Daddy's down the road. There weren't many people there, so we got to talk with Punky & Becky (the owners) a lot while we ate (which was nice). When we came back I set to work moving dirt into my flower bed (which is why I sat the alarm).

The dog played in the creek while I worked. She killed at least one mole for us (our yard is full of moles for some reason. She dug holes and got absolutely filthy. So When I finished with the tulip bed I brought her inside and bathed her (twice). I took a shower. Then I sat down in the recliner in the living room and contemplated a nap. The dog jumped up on me and decided to take a nap of her own.

I never got my nap. I figured out that Tennessee Women's basketball was on. They were playing Rutgers. It was depressing at first. It was almost half time and Tennessee was down 13-33 at the half. No Lady Vol's team has ever been that far behind at half time in the history of the universe. No Lady Vol's team has ever been held to just 13 points in the first half since God created time. So (like I said), it was depressing.

The Lady Vol's came out in the second half on a role and scored 11 unanswered points. I won't pretend to be a sports writer and try to give play-by-play or anything, but it was an exciting comeback. And with about two minutes left, Pat Summitt's Volunteers took the lead. They won 55-51.

Then I got out of the chair and cooked supper.
