It's been my observation that when local sports teams make it to some big championship event, let's say for example the state highschool football championaship, the SuperBowl or the NCAA Championship...people start acting crazy!
They do things they wouldn't ordinarily do like,let their employees where jeans and team paraphanelia, buy exhorbitantly priced souvenir shirts, or throw down in the middle of a grocery store over the last boxes of frozen pizza rolls and jalapeno poppers.
I'm not a sports fan. I don't really care who's playing in which game. So, living in Indianapolis this year has brought me several instances of intense confusion over all this eratic behavior. I just don't understand getting all worked up about which group is going to get the ball into the goal the most times.
So tonight while the rest of the city is glued to the game, I will be folding laundry and wishing we had two t.v.'s. However, all sports cynism aside I would like to say: THANK YOU BUTTLER BULLDOGS FOR GETTING ME OUT OF A 7:00 AM STAFF MEETING TOMORROW. GO BLUE!
I'll root for any reason to sleep in.
