This really moved me so I thought i would share.

By William Ernest Henley
Out of the night that covers me, 
Black as the Pit from pole to pole, 
I thank whatever gods may be

football and other odds and ends

Aw, I hope the Broncos get better.  For my husband's sake.  Our family room had one wall completely covered with a mural of BSU's marching band, on the blue field.  We knew a kid in the band, had a scholarship because of it, and 3 of my husband's former students have made it to the NFL.  But don't jump on me.  I never watch any of the games.
