And speaking of losing, I see that Alabama lost their playoff game last night, which I was certainly sorry to see, especially as I might have caused it by glorying a little too much in Tennessee's misfortunes. But as my brother pointed out, we were the underdogs (I guess that makes UT the - is there such a thing as an overdog?) and lost to a team seeded higher. Not nearly as shameful as losing to a lower-seed team.
Since it's Sunday, I'll close with a religious quote and then get me off to church, which should make Stonewall happy.
Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance. It is laying hands on His willingness.
Richard Trench (Archbishop of Dublin, 1807-1866)
