The House (STILL) Divided

You may remember this post, where I told about how Brian is a Kentucky fan and I am an IU fan.  I do not exaggerate when I say that we cannot stand each other when our teams are playing each other.  Maybe you think I’m kidding, but I am not.

Ridiculous?  Yes.

Immature?  Absolutely.

Stupid?  You bet.

Doesn’t make it any less true.  Earlier this year when IU beat Kentucky, we were at my parents house with the rest of my dad’s family for a Christmas get together.  What that means is that Brian was trapped in a house full of MANY IU fans.  And I know I’ve told you that my family is relentless when it comes to teasing & joking, so as you can imagine, it was a pretty rough environment for Brian.

Sadly, that is also the day that Nanner transferred her loyalty from IU to Kentucky.  She felt sorry for her daddy because everyone was picking on him.  I can hear you all now, you’re all going, “Awww, how sweet.”

Well, do you wanna know what I’m sayin’?  I’m sayin’, “WEAK!”

In case you missed it, here’s a short video of the shot that gave me one of the best moments of my life.

Anyway, if you follow basketball, then you know that Kentucky beat us in the tourney.  It’s a night I’d soon like to forget.  Brian & I get so ugly.  He hates me, I hate him.  We go right back to loving each other the next day, but I can barely stand to look at him during the game and I know he feels the same about me.  Sad but true, folks…sad, but true.

Well, my sadness soon turned to gladness when I got this video of Nanner the other day.  Her face at the end, when I tell her I’m gonna show her Daddy the video and she realizes that her mother is ruthless, is nothing short of priceless.  She may be a little hard to understand, so let me explain.  There is a common cheer among Hoosier fans that very simply goes:  HOO! HOO! HOO! HOOSIERS!

So the other day, Katie comes up & whispers, “Hannah is running around yelling the Hoosiers cheer & she’s supposed to be a Kentucky fan now.”

So, I couldn’t resist, I grabbed the camera & tricked her into doing it for me by telling her how funny it would be.  Yeah, I tricked her.  Mother of the Year, I know.  There’s not really a level I won’t stoop to in order to pull a good joke on someone.  Especially my husband.  Try not to judge me.


It’s all going to be so worth it when Brian sees this video on my blog.  BWAAHAAHAAA!!

Yes, Brian – your Wildcats may have won the NCAA Championship, but at least I will always have the above video and also the image below in my mind to bring me comfort. 🙂

      I’ve been trying to leave you a comment on your blog all day, but for some reason it doesn’t want to let me. Anyway – just wanted to say I’m so glad you don’t need surgery & I hope your PT goes well!

    Love it! We are all about jokes here too. Guess it runs in the family. We’ll have to tell you some
    time what we did to your uncle on his birthday.
    We are divided here too. Been on the east coast too long!
    We would’ve loved to see Brian’s reaction.
    Thanks for the laughs.
