November 26th, 2016:
- We may be to the
point of going to a new place for Xmas Trees. The kids
are now old enough to be annoyed at the ease of it
all. There's no slide or santa or some shit to do. We
walk in, I choose the only one that will really
fit and they put it on our car. I mean, that shit
will always happen every year - but we're gonna need
to wrap it in a bit more pizazz and I now see the
attraction of those other lots that have extra
shit. You drink some cocoa, you see some
- SPEAKING OF COCOA THE GODDAMN BUCKEYES.
OK, I was gonna try and focus on the tree stuff
and save the Buckeye stuff for the next entry but that
clearly ain't happning.
DOUBLE FUCKING OVERTIME WIN OVER XICHIGAN?
OMG. Could there be anything better? No. No there
couldn't. Well shit, now what the hell is the
video?!?! I guess I'll just throw it all
together. It is simply Friday and Saturday back to
back. Hell it's all within 24 hours. Let's do that
absolute best part about this is that Talya finally
got to watch an entire game. The kids spent the night
at Oma's and Jimmy & Kaylyn were up for the tree
stuff and the four of us got to watch every play.
Talya is usually relegated to kid wrangling and even
though they kind of watch it's a 4 hour chunk of time
that is never without incident. So the fact that she
got to watch THE BEST Xichigan game of all
goddamn time without interference. So fortunate. She
FINALLY got the drama of it all. It's so hard walking
in and out of something to explain how intense games
can be, but there's no explaining the anxiety of a
double-overtime game. That was excruciating.
I mean, ever minute past regulation that that
game went... the more it meant to win it. That's what
was killing me the most. I mean, sweet jesus our
# is up with THE GAME at some point. I lived
through the Cooper years. The pendulum will swing.
Harbaugh has brought the team BACK... but the second
it went into overtime (something that has never
happened in our 100+ year history) it became the
ONE FUCKING GAME you could never lose.
By double-overtime it was absolutely excruciating.
Watching Talya jump at the end of that is so
heartwarming because she FINALLLLLLLLLY felt the power
of sports. She never grew up with it, she has been
able to get into some basketball games... but football
is such a different energy and if you don't watch the
whole game, the moments don't feel different.
With basketball you really can watch the last quarter
sometimes and it works. Football is like baseball in a
sense... you have to ride that experience the entire
way. So my biggest takeaway is that she felt
- ...I am however
just beside myself tired. That killed me. This has
already been an extremely stressful week with the
Delorean bullshit. The last entry helped (still
laughing), but the problem isn't going away (Jimmy had
to PUSH me out of the driveway, but I was
able to get that guy to Marty McFly's house) and
I can only go so long without reverse.
- But who fucking
cares. We beat Xichigan. In the greatest game of
all-time. #2 has to be the 2-point conversion game
from 2013. What a time to be a fan!!!
REMEMBER THESE YEARS BUCKEYES. This
will shift at some point. But goddamnit it's awesome
- Oh, yeah - and we
got a Christmas tree. So really, this was an entry
about the Buckeyes with the tree as a sidebar. I'm ok
