Chin Up

Mondays after a loss are always tough. This is especially true living in Dallas where a high conglomerate of Big 12 alumns reside. It seems that everyone wants to talk to you about the game when all you really want to do is crawl into the fetal position under your desk. You can almost see heads held a little higher as they walk out of your office with the slightest of smirks on their face. When you look close enough, that Vince Young picture on your wall seems to be frowning at you. And, for whatever reason, you can't seem to get it out of your head:

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

But, then something reminds you "It's not that bad."

In 1994, Plano East played John Tyler for the 5A high school state championship in Texas stadium. Trailing by 25 points in the 4th quarter, with a little over 2 minutes left, Plano East scored and successfully recovered 3 consecutive onside kicks to take a 4 point lead with 24 seconds left in the game. The radio announcers were beside themselves as the Plano East Panthers lined up for the final kickoff having witnessed the impossible.

Then, the plot thickened...

Good Gawrsh ah-mighty...

So, the next time I am down about how the Longhorns played, I can remember that some people have had it worse.

At least our boys have the courtesy of giving those up in the 3rd quarter.

So now the powerhouse has stooped to quoting Daniel Powter lyrics. Note to Scott: sports and chick rock don't mix. It will take six months to get our credibility back.
