Tonight is the big night! For those of you who know me I graduated from the University of Tennessee and was a Track & Field Lady Vol (it's what they call their women athletes). For those of you who might not know, the Lady Vol Basketball team is, I think, the winningest NCAA women's basketball team in women's athletics today. They have had many Olympians and girls who went pro after college. Pat Head Summit (the coach) is the winningest coach in women's college basketball. They have never not been to the "Sweet 16" and have only missed the final 8 a couple of times (if that... I know of one). They have at least 3 national titles to their name and have played in the final game numerous times.... and they were National Champions this past year.
Now for those of you who know my marriage... my husband graduated from Texas A&M and is a die hard Texas A&M fan in any sport and is one of those annoying fans who is always looking to rib someone about their team. Our teams, whether it be football basketball or any other sport don't get to play very often, but so far when they have played, Tennessee has been the victor.
So tonight Texas A&M and Tennessee women match up to play for a Final Four spot. Texas A&M is definitely the underdog going into this game because this is the first year they have made it to the "Elite 8". Tennessee is the powerhouse of college women's basketball, so needless to say my husband is having a blast ribbing me about he game tonight. And all I have to say is yes, I have been giving him a hard time, and I just hope I don't have to eat my words. :-)
