A Silver Lining

As predicted, not a whole lot went on this weekend. Brandi was getting over her sinus infection, so we spent a lot of time just hanging out at home. Sometimes it's nice to have a weekend like that, although it would have been nicer if Brandi would have felt better and thus could have enjoyed it a little bit more.

She did feel well enough for us to go out for a nice dinner on Saturday night. We went to SamB's here in Bowling Green. We don't go there terribly often, but the food is awesome. Tonight we got to sit back in a little nook that we didn't even know was there, and it was pretty cool. There were only a few tables back there, and a bar. It was pretty quiet (except when someone briefly brought a screaming baby into the room) and had a cool atmosphere.

Unfortunately, we spent much of dinner talking about the basketball game that afternoon, which the Falcons did not win. It's hard to say exactly what went wrong, and in the end, it doesn't really matter. They didn't win on Senior Day, which is really an unfortunate way for these great seniors to go out. On the bright side, they will get another game at home--the way the seedings for the tournament shook out, the Falcons got the #8 seed and will host #9 Ball State tonight. Hopefully they can come victorious out of this one and advance to the games in Cleveland. These guys are tough, and I wouldn't be too surprised to see them go on to win the MAC tournament. I hope they get that far, because I probably won't get to see them play again unless they play in the championship game. If they do, I'll definitely be in Cleveland to see it.
