Home Runs and Hail Marys - Barbara A. Anderson
As the heat rose outside to 102° last weekend, I chilled in front of my T.V., cheering on my four home teams: The Dodgers, Angels, Trojans and Bruins (Los Angeles, Anaheim, USC and UCLA, respectively). All four teams lost in stunning defeats. I am still in shock as I write. Sure, my teams suffered what were for us, heart-breaking losses. But by the fourth time I watched a team battle against the odds and win, I was not only depressed. I was inspired.
