I had thoughts about making the five and a half hour trek (one way) to and from Atlanta today to see the boys play, but my schedule (and my sanity) got the worst (or is that the best) of me. Then “Black Water” came on the radio this morning as I was driving home from a youth football game, with the lyrics “Ole Mississippi, she’s calling my name”. True story. Then I tried to convince my wife, as Kevin Costner did with Amy Madigan in Field of Dreams when he told her that he had to be at Fenway Park with Terrance Mann, but to know avail.
While the lyrics and the song was a downright coincidental and freaky occurrence, I did not have any dream of having to be at Ole Miss with JD Salinger (which would really be freaky) or Harper Lee (who will probably be watching the Auburn/Alabama game at her home today) watching a Penn State basketball game.
So instead, I sit in Atlanta wishing the boys all the good karma one can via this thread…
