I am bummed, pretty seriously bummed, about the Spartans. I may end up in therapy over the whole ordeal. I just couldn't believe that they lost. Honestly, I was in shock. The fact that they lost in such an anti-climatic way at the end of such an exciting action-packed game was just hearbreaking, devastating really.
Anyhow, in order to help me get over it I am sitting at the McDonald's playland watching the kids play with their cousins. I am not sure if McDonald's is effective treatment for sports related depression, but we'll see. It sure beats watching television! The Daniels live about two hours away from us so when they decided to come to Fremont to meet our new neice, I decided to bring the kids so that all of the kids could burn off some energy in the playland while Miranda and Mark visit the baby. They are having a ball and it does make me feel better to see them all so happy and having such a great time. It is a little bit of a comfort, but I am still seriously sad about MSU. What is truly amazing is that I no longer consider the television in the list of options to make me feel better when I am having a rough time. Now I turn to coffee, wine, books, my running shoes and play time with the kids to get me through when times are rough. Not the television.
I was really looking forward to breaking in the BAT (Big Ass Television) in case you didnt read my post last week watching the Spartans in the Rose Bowl, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. Instead we will have to break it in watching the Super Bowl and I doubt the Lions will be representing the NFC.
