Time to Cry Tuesday – 29-1

Never count your chickens before they hatch. Period.

Everyone should live by this rule. In business. When playing MegaMillions (ok, so maybe I spent a little of the 340 mil this weekend in my mind). And especially in sports.

This past weekend a young man who is very special to us (understatement) was fortunate enough to be on the other side of the chicken counting. His HS basketball team went into the state finals against an undefeated team in their division. This very cocky opponent team came into the semi-finals 28-0. They won the semis and simply assumed that the finals were theirs for the taking. So much so that they had ’30-0′ shirts made up before the competition.


In a harrowing, nail biting, moms (and dads) in tears victory, the other team came back in the second half to…

win by 25!

About those chickens. : )

(FYI, the original article about these shirts has been changed to state they were a ‘mistake’… I’d say so)

    Not that I’m a proud parent or anything, but those chickens lost by 27, not 25!! Final score 78-51. Go Mikey!

    Florin family. if you read my comment, Congratulations. I heard about this before the blog…Gary and Amy couldn’t of been prouder. Go Mickey!

  3. I can see being favored and losing a close game. I can even see someone thinking that it was a good idea to have the shirts made. Those things wouldn’t be that unusual, but I didn’t see the blowout ending coming. Wow!

    Congrats to young Mike and his team.

  4. Nice one. I so love it when an uppity bunch of wankers get what’s coming to them!
