Early Christmas Present

So, we're sitting here with the Giants/Redskins game on mute and I start to cheer when the Giants pick off a pass: "HE. COULD. GO. ALL. THE. WAY!"

My wife looks up from her book and says: "This is a big one, right? If the Giants win here they win the NFC East, don't they?"

Shocked silence as a smile spreads over my face and I thank my lucky stars all over again.

I hope you all get exactly what you want and, if you get something else, you have the wit to recognize, as I just did, that maybe it was exactly what you wanted anyway.

Merry Christmas!

A bit cryptic but I'm pretty sure I got it. The true joy is in the surprise at the sharing of the moment?

Merry Christmas, Happy Channukah and Fabulous Festivus, RP!

What a wonderful moment. I've been teaching my son about football; watching its much more fun and enjoyable as a result because he understands the game.

May this holiday be filled with wonderous and special monents that are full of love.
