Wrapping up the sports season of a lifetime

Now that col­lege bas­ket­ball is over, I can mark the end of the most amaz­ing sport­ing sea­son I am like­ly to ever enjoy.

First the Red Sox win the World Series (again).  Then KU’s woe­ful col­lege foot­ball pro­gram pulls the most amaz­ing per­for­mance ever out of its col­lec­tive bum, ends the sea­son 12–1 with a vic­to­ry in a BCS Bowl… prob­a­bly the best KU foot­ball sea­son ever.  Then the Patri­ots make it all the way to the Super­bowl (where they lost, sure, but it was a fun sea­son to watch).  And final­ly, the KU men’s bas­ket­ball team goes all the way, win­ning the Nation­al Cham­pi­onship, and pos­si­bly com­plet­ing the best sea­son ever for KU’s sto­ried bas­ket­ball pro­gram.

It has been a lot of fun.  It’ll nev­er hap­pen again.  (Pos­si­bly because I’m trad­ing my base­ball fan­dom for a return to soc­cer.… base­ball has lost me with all the scan­dals.)
