In order to win the KO’s, you have to make it to the finals.
In order to make it to the finals, you have to make it to the semi-finals.
This week, that little goal has eluded us, until tonight.
We have been in Bracket 2 all week, but so many teams have gone home that we are in Bracket I for the final KO that started this morning. There were 10 teams in our bracket, so they reduced it to 6 in the first round, and had two round robins in the second session, so there will be 4 teams tomorrow morning in the semi-finals, and our team is one of them. Perseverance pays off.
Mike and I played the first half tonight, then we were out so we went to play our annual game of miniature golf. Neither of us is a real golfer, so 18 holes a year of mini-golf is about enough for us.
Dinner tonight at the Texas Roadhouse, which is pretty much like everyplace else here. A waitress who asked if “y’all have ever ate here before”. Excessively sweet dinner rolls served with cloyingly sweet honey margarine. Salads from the kitchen instead of a salad bar, but pretty good. Really really good ribs. I’m not really a rib afficianado, but if you’re in Tennessee, you owe it to yourself to try them.
Semi finals at 10 Sunday morning. If we lose, Mike and I head to Knoxville, a trip to the art museum, a night at the Hilton and then an early plane Monday. If we win, we stay and play the finals, no museum. I like that plan better, how much great art can they have in Knoxville, anyway?
