Life is funny. Just when you think you've got something figured out, it throws you a curveball and changes your whole perspective. You think it's cold-and then your power goes out for days, as mine, (and hundreds of thousands of others in mid-Michigan), did over the holidays. You think having your power out is bad, and then you hear about a very ill friend and suddenly shivering under blankets and losing food from your freezer doesn't seem bad at all.
A football season starts, and you question how bad it's going to be, and then all of a sudden a trip to the Rose Bowl starts to look possible. Your team makes it to the Rose Bowl and you think everything is great, and then your star player doesn't make the trip and prognosticators are betting against your team. Then somehow, your team shows grit, determination, leadership and talent and your star's replacement comes up big and suddenly your team is the Rose Bowl champion.
And then just when you think that the Spartans have given you the best New Year's gift by winning the game, something else happens that puts everything in perspective, (a little too much perspective), and you realize a different Spartan gift is way more important.
