“My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.”

-Rascal Flatts “My Wish”

As I sit down on the couch, snacks in hand, getting ready to get caught up on the latest sports action, I flip the TV channel to ESPN. Top plays of the week are coming on, one of my favorite parts of the show. After I get my daily dose of “Man Medicine” I decide it’s time to hit the hay, been a long day. When I start to turn off the TV something catches my attention, so I decide to stick around through the commercial break and see what this is all about.

So how many times has your favorite team won a championship? The most recent that I remember is this past college football season where the Alabama Crimson Tide won the National Championship (Roll Tide!). Now when the final seconds ticked off the clock, when the game clock showed nothing but zeroes, when the players were celebrating, trying on their new shirts and hats, I can honestly say that the first thing I did not think about was, “Hey, lets go burn something”. “Lets go flip a car over and catch it on fire” did not come out of my mouth. It never crossed my mind. So WHY does it happen all the time!? Someone out there has to know the answer. Why is it that when a team wins a championship riots break out and people start destroying everything in sight. Isn’t this supposed to be a happy time? I know I was happy when my beloved Crimson Tide won the Championship, but “so happy” to destroy and burn everything in sight? Nope. That’s not how I roll I guess. I guess I enjoy the simple things in life. Like being happy after a victory. Maybe I’m just weird.
