Boo-Yah: Part 2

Tonight, my team continued a 5 game winning streak.

Tonight, they beat their rival on the big, scary high school gym floor.

Tonight, they won the Zone Championship.

Tonight, they came together and toughened up and pulled off something that 3 months ago, I deemed not just highly unlikely but damn near impossible.

If you had gone to Vegas and put $100 on this occurrence at the start of the season, I'd have called you a sucker. I'd also be curious as to why Vegas bookies are taking money on junior high girls' basketball. Then I would have checked your pockets for your crack pipe or begun measuring you for your straightjacket.

But they did it. Holy schnikies... they. totally. did. it.

Yesterday, I said that I didn't think I could be any prouder of a group of kids.

I spoke too soon.
