Hook 'em horns
I am always apprehensive about things that everyone else assumes are a given. Call me superstitious, but last week when EVERY SINGLE ESPN predictor picked the Bears to win, I got nervous- and sure enough, loss #1. Similarly, when we went to Austin this week and learned that the famed Longhorns were playing the relatively unimpressive Kansas State and were virtually assured a cakewalk victory, I got a little nervous for the boys in burnt orange- and sure enough, they lost. There's a lesson here: if you really really want something that you think has a decent chance of happening, don't tell me about it. Which puts me in the uncomfortable position of hoping I don't get a job in the hopes that reverse psychology will kick in and I will actually get one. Figure that one out.
