Thanks to my friend, Dan McCamy, for the picture that says it all.
When I was a kid, my dad–who was a teacher–and I had a strategy for snow days.
In the evening, as it started to snow, I would get excited about the impending free day hanging out with my dad.
But–like Lee Corso–my dad would say, “Not so fast.”
Less than an hour ago, Corso picked the Oklahoma Sooners to beat the Missouri Tigers in Columbia this evening.
Can you blame him? Gary Pinkel’s Tigers haven’t beaten Bob Stoops’ Sooners.
Despite both teams belonging to the Big 12 Conference, they just haven’t been in the same league.
Missouri is not going to win this game against Oklahoma.
You see, when you want a snow day, the trick is telling yourself that school will be in session just like any other day. You brush your teeth, say your prayers and get tucked in. We’re going to have school tomorrow. That’s what my dad and I would work to convince each other of. Then, we’d go to bed.
I wish I could tell you all I’d see you for the snow day tomorrow, but I can’t. We’re going to have school. Missouri is going to lose.
