Our nine-year old son is spending a few days with his maternal grandparents in Florida and that was where he watched the Rose Bowl yesterday. As a little boy raised in Madison and possessing an intense love for football it is not surprising that he loves the Badgers. He obsesses over rankings and has still not gotten over the heartbreaking loss to Michigan State earlier in the season. We talked to him right after the game yesterday and he was inconsolable. He told me that he just wanted to see the Badgers "win one bowl game...that's all I want." I tried to take his mind off of the Badgers by pointing out that the Packers beat the Lions and ended the season at 15 and 1. His response between the sobs was "Of course they did, they never lose to the Lions at home." He also pointed out that trying to spike the ball with two seconds left was a move almost guaranteed to fail...I have to agree with him there.
