Tonight is the Final game of the 2008 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. The University of Kansas, where I live (and where I am newly employed!) is playing in this game, against the University of Memphis. Tip off is at 8:21 pm, our time. That means the boys will be in bed, and we can watch it live, with the radio guys announcing alongside.
I am terribly nervous. Our game on Saturday was awesome, and frightening, and shows exactly what our team can do, both good and bad. We need the good to show up tonight, not the bad.
I am doing what I can to help them. I am wearing a new t-shirt today, but I’ll put the other one on before the game. That’s the one I’ve worn for each game this Tournament. The boys both have new t-shirts they are wearing (I think I have yet to see a single person today who is not wearing some sort of KU merchandise). We have our flag out front (the house came with a flag socket). I have a new hat (one that fits, yay).
It’s all I can do, except wish them luck.
