Thanks for all of the birthday wishes. Not a lot of time for my birthday yesterday as Fitsum's birthday is today (Happy Birthday kiddo!) and we we did the BOUNCE HOUSE Y'ALL!!!! which was great because you come home to a relatively clean house and the kids all get tired. There's no one I'd rather share my birthday with than him, so all is well. Plus, last night the wife and I put together a table train set. He loves trains. He needs moar trains. I think he'll love it.
So I'm very bummed about the men's and women's basketball teams. The women's team is on a slide, but they'll get to play again in the NCAA Tournament. The men's team lost a heart-breaker and it was free throws, in my opinion, or the lack thereof, that ended up getting them in the end. I still don't know what I would do for the head coach. I'm torn, and maybe I shouldn't be torn. I'm just tired of this team being in shambles and now, after reading Bob Knight's article linked below. Seems like he had/has all of the answers.
