For those of you who don't pay attention to such things, the NCAA college basketball tournament just wrapped up this week. The small college, Butler, a #5 seed, made it all the way to the final game.
As the tournament went on, I have to say, I started to really pull for that team. "Hmmm. 'Butler', that's my name, too!"
Against the odds, they were beating their adversaries. "Hey... Just like I'M beating this disease."
It is totally hokey, but I started to think of their successes as mirroring my own. For a non-fan, I was cheering pretty damn hard for Butler in that final game. And they played awesomely. In the end, they lost to the big powerhouse, Duke, by just two measly points. But in my book, they won. And, thus, by my highly scientifically sound theory, so will I.
Hokier than the hokey pokey, I know. I know.
