Never Say Never

I don’t think that when a person starts a blog they have a particularly good idea of what they would like to write about. They THINK they have an idea, but that idea usually shifts as they go along. That’s not a bad thing, I don’t think. To the contrary, it’s oftentimes a sign of maturation and growth. If I am correct on this one, BOY, have I grown!

Like I said, when I started blogging I didn’t really have a good idea what my blog would be about. BUT I was pretty damn sure that there was this one thing I would NEVER EVER write about: SPORTS.

But see, things happened and people get married and their husband turns out to be really interested in baseball and college basketball. He also happens to be one super articulate and very persuasive fan of the NCAA Basketball Championship. So, here I am, bringing your attention to the fact that the tournament starts later today. And that, in addition to being sort of excited about it, I have done the unthinkable: I have filled out a bracket and contributed FIVE AMERICAN DOLLARS to a friends-only gambling pool, hoping and praying that North Carolina and Florida make it to the finals in Atlanta and Florida wins the Championship.

Now in addition to playing Bulgarian scrabble and taking jumping pictures of each other, our little family has yet another favorite pastime: GAMBLING.
