O the Pain

I just returned from a sports bar where I, along with 30 to 40 other Stanford alums, watched in horror and disbelief as our team lost to Alabama. O God, why have you forsaken us?? Why couldn't we get another miracle buzzer beater? Now I have no reason to watch the tournament anymore, since both my bracket and my team went down in flames. Now I know what it feels like to be a Cubs fan. Every year I have so much hope only to have my heart stabbed and ripped out mercilessly in March. "You are such a dork," Maribel laughed when I clutched my chest and groaned and then hugged her. Tonight I have given up all hope on a national championship from Stanford men's basketball.
