After she defeated me in Hungry, Hungry Hippo, she danced around me, saying “I’m the best. I beat you Daddy. I win.”
She said that over and over again. I’m not going to point any fingers, but I have a feeling where she received her sportsmanship. I’m pretty sure my wife danced around me the last time she beat me at a board game. Obviously I need to practice my skills, or else that victory dance could continue for years to come.
Last week I went 17-8, which is pretty awful considering I was only picking winners. I was hampered by my teams not finishing, like Iowa State, which is having a forgetful year.
The Clones better gear up for this week’s contest, too, considering the Sooners are out for blood after being demolished by Baylor. There’s no bowl in the Cyclones future this year, but a solid finish can help build momentum for next year.
