So, today we found out that we're having a boy, which I'm totally stoked about. I would have been thrilled with a girl too, but it's our first child, so naturally I wanted a boy first. The great part is, that during the game Saturday night, my wife (A Notre Dame grad) made a bet with m.e After Notre Dame scored the go ahead touchdown with some thirty odd seconds left, I said Michigan still had time to at least tie this game. So high in her revelry was she, she told me that if by "some miracle" Michigan won, I could decorate the baby room any way I so chose, boy or girl. I had been jokingly threatening to decorate the room in Michigan colors and such even if it were a girl for months. The topper, was that I had made a comment that I was going to make a Bo Schembechler baby mobile above her crib. That every time it spinned, it says "The Team, The Team, The Team". Having no clue if something like that were even possible, she agreed. Turns out it is possible! I have a few engineering friends that I graduated with from Michigan that say it's easily doable. All we have to do, is find little stuffed toy heads of Bo, which aren't easy to find, but I'm sure we can do something.
Her face when Michigan scored was one of biblical hatred, Which was made it even better, when my friend informed her that the Bo Schembechler baby mobile was indeed possible. Her only consolation is that I told her I wouldn't hang a picture of The General, with the caption "To Hell With Notre Dame" at the bottom.Glorious night, Go Blue!
