The Highs and Woes of Mid September

OK, so we're looking at a tentative travel date of September 15. A Friday. We're overjoyed at the possibility of having Zoe home in early October, and can't wait to get in the air.

But ain't it a kicker that Saturday, September 16 is being billed as one of the best college football weekends in many many years! I love college fooball; I'm a huge Florida Gators fan; and UF plays Tennessee on that day. Damn the scheduling gods! But more than the UF-UT matchup, there's also:

FSU vs Clemson, Miami vs Louisville, Auburn vs LSU, Michigan vs Notre Dame, Nebraska vs Southern Cal, Oklahoma vs Oregon . . . It's almost like New Years Day!

But alas, I am on a more important journey. Florida will play Tennessee yet again in 2007, but I only get one chance to get my daughter Zoe. And if the scheduling gods say September 15, then that is what it will be.

I will plan to proudly wear my Gator shirt in Beijing and yell "Go Gators" from atop the Great Wall. Maybe that will be enough to help them win the game.

Boy if I knew your were Gators...just kidding! I'm a Nole but I was nice and married a Gator. Who said a mixed family could be a challenge? We've lived that for 10 football seasons!! Go Noles!
