My local university and employer of over 23 years, Utah, has a football team.
Going into this weekend they were nationally ranked #3 with a perfect 6-0 record.
They were to play a struggling USC team.
They lost, 42-24.
Some would see this as a tragedy. It is sad. I mostly feel bad for the players who put so much time and really parts of their souls into the training and practice that allows them to play at this level. But for the rest of us, it’s really just a game and it means very little.
Yes I want them to win every game. But they don’t and they won’t.
I still have to go to work on Monday. I would’ve had to go if they won too. My rent’s still due, my dinner still needs to be cooked, and my need to sleep remains.
It’s sad, but it doesn’t make any real difference in my life.
I hear there’s a game next week.
