Let's just take a moment's break from Wisconsin's dirty toilet of bad politics and sing some praises about our sports teams!
In two real nail biters, Wisconsin's football teams took over the limelight this weekend. The Badgers won the inaugural Big Ten Championship, defeating Michigan State to advance to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on New Year's Day. It wasn't exactly a drumming, but it certainly was a good ending to a championship season. My husband is a UW alumni, so the fever pitch coming from our den during the game was enough to send me upstairs to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" for the thousandth time. I get a little nervous when games are that hard fought and difficult to call.
The Packers advance to 12 and 0. The game against the Giants was enormously stressful, a real on the edge of your seat nail biter. The Giants played hard and fast, but it just wasn't enough, in the end.
So our sports teams take a little of the negative light off our state, and make us look enthusiastic, determined and focused on winning.
Let's hope the recall elections do the same for all of us.
