V is for Victory!

It seemed like it should have worked out fine.

That's exactly what The Missouri Tigers head coach must have been thinking when my beloved Nebraska Cornhuskers scored 27 unanswered points in the fourth quarter of last nights game to come back and triumph over their Big XII rivals. It was a sloppy game played in a torrential downpour, but at least the good guys won.

Go Big Red!

No doubt this wasn't the post Lisa had in mine when she suggested I start a post with the first line "It seemed like it should have worked out fine," but since I got caught up watching the game last night instead of writing, this is what you get.

I have another busy weekend of flag football games, but this Saturday is also the annual Carnival at St Mary School. If you are here in Amarillo be sure and stop by between 12 and 7 for some great fun and even better Mexican food. Hope to see you there.

You're a Nebraska fan? I'm not sure how I feel about that. Though I suppose it's better than be an Oklahoma fan.

I always root for Nebraska unless they are playing Arkansas.

LSU lost to FLorida - ERGGH - our offensive line is weak, luckily our defense is strong!

I root for no one. Much to my husband's chagrin...

My husband's a Raiders fan so each week he thinks how it could have, and should have worked out... :O)

That game was a sloppy mess and I was surprised that many points were scored. Congrats on the big win, and I hope your boys are feeling better. I saw your Facebook updates.

Um,you don't know me, and this has nothing to do with sports, but I just had to say that the paragraph you just posted on Nathan's "First Paragraph Contest" thingy...was COMPLETELY, and UTTERLY the best thing I've read. Like, in forever. (and ever.)

You have my vote.

Hi! Completely unrelated, but I just wanted to say I really liked your first paragraph on Nathan Bransford's blog.

Mary said...

I too want to tell you I thought your first paragraph was awesome. Good luck

I just have to say I picked the Huskers on my blog! and I have picked them yet again GO NEBRASKA(sorry I can't so go big red because that's too much like IU)

L said...

So, on a completely unrelated subject, I had to write and say that your first paragraph in Nathan's contest consisted of man, brawn, and pure brilliance.

Brilliance I tell ya!

Being that it 's all super subjective and everything, I just wanted to let you know that come what may, you're totally the winner in my book.

Yay you!

Um, another fawning writer here, loving your paragraph. (Oh, and did you see what Lola wrote about 5 entries down from your post?) That's just too cool.

Good luck, please write a lot.
