I am filled with euphoria and have a skip in my step. The Houston Cougars are going to the Final Four! They just beat Oregon State in a final score of 67 to 61. I’m so proud of the Houston team. They played hard this year and truly earned their number two seed in the Midwest.
I am also biased. I went to the University of Houston for graduate school and got my masters in Reading and Language Arts after my first three years of teaching, which were a disaster. Well, maybe just that first year, but that’s another story.
Houston is a special place for me. It’s where I got my first teaching job and where I met my husband. It was also my home for 22 years before moving to Austin. And before Texas, I grew up in Michigan.
Hmmm. I wonder if Michigan will make it to the Final Four, or maybe it will be UCLA who beat my alma mater Michigan State in the First Four. Either way this weekend I will be watching the games of the Final Four and cheering for the Cougars to go all the way.
