This Wolverine Mom is a Big Fan of the Huskers

Screen Shot 2013-04-08 at 9.56.52 AMI love the University of Michigan. The day I was admitted there changed my life for the better in ways I can’t even imagine. I met my husband there (while waiting tables at The Brown Jug). I received a degree there that has enabled me to work in my chosen profession consistently for the past 15 years. In my humble estimation, U of M is everything that a university should be.

And maybe you’ve heard (possibly) but the Michigan Men’s Basketball team is playing in a pretty big game tonight against Louisville.

I have to be totally honest. My love for Michigan has very little to do with sports. I like sports, especially college sports. But I have a hard time getting worked up about them. I don’t love to watch games and talk about stats. There is a part of sports that I do love, however. The part you don’t see on the field. I love the stories. I love the struggle and the heart and the coming together and the sacrifice it takes to make a team. I love that my kids play sports and I have worked hard to be a good sports parent.

Which is why today, the one day I should screaming “GO BLUE!!!” like a crazy person, I’m giving a slow clap standing ovation to one of our biggest football rivals, the Nebraska Huskers. This is clearly a team with heart and I wish them all the best. Watch the video, see what they did for Jack Hoffman, a little boy with brain cancer during a spring training game this weekend, and you’ll be cheering for them too.
