I know that soon, maybe not tonight. Maybe not tomorrow night. But soon I will get very very excited about college basketball. I can feel that it's coming. But it's a little like that feeling of getting one of your favorite band's new cds. You loved their last album. You listened to it every day, maybe even twice a day, and it made you feel magnificent and free, even if you were just driving to the grocery store. And then you go and you get their new cd (or you DOWNLOAD it, whatever, you know what I mean) and you're scared. Are you going to love it as much as you loved their last album? Will you even like it? What if you hate it? Can you even put it into the cd player? Yes, yes you can. Trust. Trust that you will love it. Trust that they will not disappoint.
Okay. So, maybe that analogy doesn't work as well as I thought it would at the beginning of my post. But the point is that, I'm going to trust that I will get back into college basketball and that I'll survive without football. Just like I'll keep loving The National with every album that comes out, because they're an awesome band, and that's the way it works.
