Happy New Year!

We're celebrating the birth of 2009 with Fratelli's pizza (ah, real NY Pizza here in Central Ohio!! Thin and cheesy and fabulous!) Add to that lots of college football and the Blue Jackets vs. Anaheim later on, and it's a Happy New Year!

Spent the early part of the week cleaning out Mom's house. Filled a dumpster, and also filled up the front porch with items for donation. House was listed on the market yesterday afternoon, so if anyone is looking for a new home in Louisville give me a yell.

Took a break on Monday night for the UK-Central Michigan game in Lexington. I hadn't been back to Rupp Arena for a basketball game since Senior Night in 1988. DH, DS1 and DS3 were there with me and got to see UK Basketball in action. Best comment of the night was from DS3, who looked for me in the Lexington Center food court after getting his dinner...he said 'I looked for you since you were wearing blue, but then EVERYONE was wearing Blue. It was weird.' Ah, my people!!!! Go Big Blue!!

Yesterday was a Grand Slam!

Where to begin?

1. Kentucky beats IU 72-54. Yes, I know IU is not exactly IU this year thanks to Kelvin Sampson's leftover mess. Still, we can all remember what happened last year (ugh!), it's still a rivalry game, and for about 15 minutes UK looked amazing on their way to the win.

2. Blue Jackets beat the Islanders 3-1. Kept the home game win streak alive, Mason with yet another win in goal, and Jason Chimera with a goal and the #1 star (yes, really.)

3. Trinity beats Simon Kenton 48-0 in the Kentucky Class 6-A State Championship game. Trinity, ranked #13 in the USA Today poll, marched to their 19th State Championship and 4th in a row!!! So, the real state championship game was last weekend when Trinity beat X, as I predicted to DH!

4. Lastly, Tebow didn't win it! Tebow didn't win it! Congrats to Sam Bradford for winning the Heisman Trophy. Kid had a heck of a season and deserved the recognition. Besides, if I never hear the name Tim Tebow again it would be much too soon.

Grand Slam for this fangirl!!!
