We'll Be Back

Terrence Jones after UK's loss to UConn. Terrence, we feel your pain.

Well, it's over. The Cats lost last night; no national championship game. But, I'm proud of my team. It was a fun ride while it lasted. And we'll definitely be back next year.

The local papers are reporting on all of the fans, local and in Houston, and their thoughts on the game. My favorite quote came from a young woman in Lexington, which appeared in this morning's Courier-Journal:

At the Tin Roof Bar in Lexington, Ashley Grigsby, 23, said she put off a request for a first date to watch the game instead.

"I couldn't focus on a man," she said.

Now, that's a Kentucky girl.

"Go Cats! said George H.W. and Barbara. I heard Barbara opted to leave her Kentucky blue jacket at home, so that she could at least appear to look impartial during the tournament. :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, friends. We put up a new tire swing in the backyard yesterday, so early this morning the kids are already asking if they can go out and play. Love it! And, I was very industrious Saturday, tilling flower beds, planting bulbs and putting down mulch. Not sure where the energy came from, but I'm hoping some calories were burnt. Of course, I probably canceled it out with the Dairy Queen soft serve ice cream I had later that night. Ugh, what was I thinking? I better hit the pavement for a run today.

Happy Sunday y'all!

Love how you're so passionate about the game - sorry your team lost. My kids talk and watch b-ball all the time but I don't seem to pick up an ounce of it...thought love to watch the Warriors live!
