It's all over... for now...

Well... last night we ended our season with a 36-39 OT loss to Altus. We were CLEARLY the better team offensively and defensively... but they were the better team on the free-throw line. We had to make up a 5 point deficit with about 1:15 left in the 4th quarter, but tied it with about 45 seconds left. We had the opportunity to take the last shot, but I didn't call a timeout to set something up... they got a steal... we blocked it with 15 seconds left... and then we kept their inbounds play from working to go into OT. We made 3-16 from the free-throw line and you just can't go into a playoff game without one of your guns. I was sad for the girls, because they worked so hard this year and they have come so far this season. It was a good year, but I'm sad it's over. Glad in that I get to see my wife and kids more!
Joel made a funny tonight. He had taken off his seatbelt while we were parked and I got out of the van to put it back on. After opening the door, Joel asked me where the spare tire was. Jeanise was a little shocked about the question... and answered, "we don't have one Joel. We have runflat tires." I didn't really think much about that (it was a good point, while I was finishing thinking about where it was...), but soon after said, "around daddy's belly." That was pretty funny.

TIme to put the munchkins in bed and go watch a movie. Night!
