#277 Our Texas Visit

Last year, we started working on a plan to attend the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship in San Antonio with our Texas family. And through the generosity of friends, we secured the tickets. Only once in our previous seven men's Final Four visits did we have the pleasure of watching my favorite team, the Kansas Jayhawks, compete. But sometimes things just work out. On Selection Sunday, the Hawks received a number one seed. Two weeks later, we watched in stunning HD as Kansas won the Midwest Regional to advance to the Final Four in San Antonio.
On April 5 in the Alamodome, I watched from section 105, row 31, seat 20 as Kansas overcame a 9-point deficit in the last two minutes, hit a miracle shot to tie the game with 2 seconds remaining, and in overtime, win the 2008 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship.

Yours in appreciating how sometimes things just work out,
