The headline should have read “From great to greater”. Every time I think about the Mississippi State women’s basketball performance at the final four last night, I start to cry. I cried right along with Morgan William last night when she was grabbed by Coach Schaefer.
I was at the car wash this morning (I only wash my car when we get a big win which means I have the cleanest car on the block these days). A complete stranger started up a conversation about the game and asked if I saw Dak sitting up front in his bulldawg shirt. The tears started just like they did all those years ago when Dak led us all the way to Number 1 college football team in the nation.
I also finally met my neighbors last night after the game. Everyone on the block gathered outside for an impromtu pep rally. I was embarrassed that I’d never met the young men who rent the house across the street. Now we’re best friends!
I never saw so many big plays in one game just when we needed it most. The girls were feeding off the energy of each other and what a comeback after last year! We spanked that U Conn team for their nastiness last year.
Do we have another win to pull up tomorrow when we meet South Carolina for the championship? My new hero – WIlliam says “Yes.” I’m going to be sitting here in my Bulldawg shirt and lucky socks at 5 p.m.. Does anyone know what network?
