Perseverance

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?
