There’s No Joy In Mudville
Silver medals never tasted so bitter.
Get those cards, flowers and strip-o-grams coming, I need a lil’ pick-me-up.
Not because the Cowboys lost or the Rangers’ annual summer fade is in hyper-drive. Alas, my tennis team came this close to winning the USTA 3.5 Texas sectional championship and advancing to the national tournament.
Instead, we lost a third-set tiebreaker in the deciding match yesterday afternoon after a grueling weekend in which I played five singles matches over 48 hours. If you need me today I’ll be laying on the couch catching up on Cowboys-Chargers and the Irish Tiger .
Keep me in your prayers. -- Richie Whitt
