Happy Boys - A Snippet

One grew up near Cleveland.  One grew up near Oakland.  The rivalry has always been intense.

One tries to be supportive, while not-so-secretly cherishing the belief that his team is superior

One knows that the only person he might consider a legitimate challenger to Michael Jordan in his personal pantheon is, right now, the best person playing basketball, anywhere on earth, and is leading his hometown to the Finals.

I sit on the couch, supportive of both, invested in neither.

They rant and cheer and groan and encourage and despair and coach from the sidelines.  I crochet.

There is no basketball until Thursday.  For these next few, blissful days, both my boys will be happy.
