What It Was...
Andy Griffith wasn't always Sheriff Taylor. He had a comedy career before Mayberry, and this is just one of the routines he did.
I thought of it tonight because earlier our neighbors across the street exited their house in whoops and hollers of joy - the Gators had won the NCAA Football Championship. Young men were shouting out loud in the middle of the road.
What it was... was football.
I don't get it.
Play it,sure. Enjoy watching it even. But I don't know, I reserve that sort of emotion for things like when I saw Bunny start to walk down the aisle on our wedding day, or when our sons were born...
Or when I hear, as I did Wednesday night, that someone has been reborn into new life.
Go God! Beat Satan!
