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.)
