Superbowl Recap & Sasha's Surgery
As MA natives (well, actually, no one in my family is, but we lived there for ten years), we're pretty avid Patriots fans. Here in CT, our town is almost equally divided between the Pats and the Giants, so it made for some interesting Superbowl hype.
Needless to say, we were all tearing our hair out at the end of the game (although admittedly, I don't understand football, as many times as I ask my dad to explain it to me.) My dad and Kristian were especially depressed. Sasha, however, was completely ecstatic. I SO wish I had taken a video- seeing her react to the end of the game was absolutely the most hilarious thing I've ever seen. Responding to the cheers of people in the stands, she began to run across the room and back incessantly, only stopping to dance and spin in a circle. She started clapping and screaming "YAY!!!!" over and over- this lasted for a good fifteen or twenty minutes. The fact that there were commercials made it even funnier though. At the breaks, Sasha would stop and patiently watch the TV, only to resume her passionate enthusiasm when the football came back on. All the while, my brothers and dad were sulking, and Kristian was close to tears. We, of course, had no idea what a huge Giants fan Sasha was until now, but then again, what would make her want to support the Pats? Unlike the rest of us, Sasha has never even been to Massachusetts.
On a different note, I just wanted to mention that Sasha needs to have heart surgery this week for a heart murmur. There is nothing to be concerned about at this point, but please keep her in your thoughts as we hope for a seamless recovery.
