I'm sure everybody in Chicago thinks I'm talking about the Bears game on Monday. The one that nobody watched after halftime because they'd already gone to bed, knowing the Bears had lost. Only they didn't.
But no-o-o-o-o-o. Not that game.
Remember that high school game I wrote about a couple of entries
ago? The one that went into triple overtime and MY team won by
ONE POINT? Of course you do.
Well, one of the columnists for the
largest paper here decided it was the best game of the year. Even
though there's one more regular season game and then the playoffs.
That's because MY unranked team knocked off a highly ranked team. Did I mention in triple overtime? By one point?
Since the score was 46-45, it was also FUN TO WATCH, in a heartstopping kind of way.
I also created a really cool ten
minute video for the team that I gave to one of the coaches to play for
them the night before the game. Among other things, there were
highlights we had shot from several previous games, laid against a headcracking
audio track from the opening battle scene in a famous movie. Awesome,
if I say so myself. Naturally, it was only fitting that I ended it with
a great line that the commanding general says to rev up his troops to
beat their enemy, "What we do in this life echoes in eternity!" The
coach handed it back to me afterward with one comment,
"Outstanding!" Somebody else said it was one of the best ones
Yeah, I'm good. In a small fish that swims in a little pond kind of way.
