Corn Flakes: Basketball, Volleyball, and Football Oh My

Yesterday was the opening of basketball season. I don’t know if I’ve ever been so ready for another sport to start.

This football season (really the past eight football seasons) has been draining. It’s tough just looking for a little bit of joy, a little bit of hope each Saturday and then to have all those tiny hopes crushed over and over gain. It’s really just exhausting.

Volleyball has been what has kept me going in the sports realm. Now I have something else to look forward too. Men’s basketball doesn’t promise to be any less painful than football, but I can’t wait to see what this women’s basketball team does this year. I mean they scored 100 points yesterday. That’s impressive.

Here are your flakes.
