sports done right


I was able to see my second cross country ski meet of the season today. There is something wonderful about all these kids from different schools cheering for each other. For the fans being fans of all the competitors, not just the ones wearing the right shirts. For coaches coaching, whether they know the kid's name or not. It may be cold for those of us on the sidelines, but I think all our hearts grow 3 sizes each day.

You have never been a grinch, my friend.

Aw, Meggie, thanks. (Although I do sometimes feel a bit grinchy when my feet get cold and I can't move my fingers properly...)

Wasn't that one of the Grinch's problems too? That his feet were too cold? :-)
I stick by my first statement, though.
