A life lesson about sports

The biggest fussing I’ve endured in the last 10 years probably came in March of 2013.

The Anderson County Lady Bearcats had just won the Eighth Region in dramatic fashion and were ranked No. 2 in Kentucky going into the state basketball tournament at Western Kentucky University’s Diddle Arena. My wife and I packed our bags, notebooks, laptops and cameras and made arrangements with a church friend to take care of our sixth-grade daughter for what we believed would be a lengthy stay in Bowling Green.
