This week - out of the blue - she emailed me and the rest of the crew of Team Jackal with a short note that read -
"Watch this 2.5 minute monologue. If any of you yahoos had ever articulated it this eloquently I would have understood the fruitless pursuit years ago."
Such love and support.
Either way, the video is great - even if it did come from her favorite - and crappy - show Scandal. Love the speech this guy gives about why we fish, how anything is possible, and how there's always hope - that something will be different.
My wife will be at the Headhunt this year - after a year absence for her college reunion (unacceptable excuse) - and will be selling t-shirts while pretending to care about how close we got to winning out tournament - but didn't - again. That may change this year.
I can be hopeful, even in failure.
