I am now asking myself if apparating is a real word…or is it a word from Harry Potter? Hmm…I do not know. But the point I’m trying to get across is that this beanie appeared out of no where!
I, being the best wife ever, agreed to cheer on my husband’s team this evening in the mountains of Virginia freezing my tail off. I will be taking a bus this afternoon and will arrive before kick-off. I will be taking a bus three hours back and hopefully get into my nice warm bed by 4:00am. Lucky me!
However, last night as I was gathering the warmest clothes I own, I realize all of my hats or beanies were in the garage. No big deal, I’ll just grab the opener and find them. Well our garage is detached since we are in an apartment complex. So the only way in is through this little bitty opener. And where is that little opener? Oh that is right…locked in my husband’s car all the way on campus. And he was in Virginia. Ugh.
Well that is ok, if I time out my schedule just right I can make a quick stop at Target to grab a new hat on my way to meet the bus. And as if my husband was standing in the living room as I was sharing this thought…a UNC beanie, that I have never seen before in my life, appears on my kitchen table! All. by. itself.
It’s like the ghost of Keith Heckendorf was telling me “Woman, do not step foot into a Target. Here you go. Use my beanie.”
Well ghost of my husband…thank you for taking care of me…and thank you for blocking my trips to target…I think?
There are many ups and downs to the football profession, a career path my husband chose. But when I came across this video early this week I was reminded of all the things I love about football, number one being the sense of community and the way the game brings strangers together to cheer for one goal.
So on this Football Saturday morning, I’d love to share this video with you and wish the best of luck to all the teams you’ll be cheering for today!
