There was a big football game tonight. I would probably fall well short of "super-fan" status, having fallen asleep on the couch during the game - only to wake up in overtime as my team was just about to win with the final score. I'm happy for the win not only because it's fun to watch my team win, but because of what it does to this city. For a moment, we are united in joy. For a moment, while the confetti flies, all is forgiven because there is only room for celebration. I wish life could be this way more often, on a crisp fall night.
