While other Hucksters weren't thrilled about gearing up for Christmas I gotta say New Year's Eve doesn't do it for me.
Could be too many disastrous New Year's Eve dates when I was single. Could be that I don't like change. Could be that it's hard to decide how to celebrate when your kids range in age from 10 to almost 20.
Whatever it is, I just wasn't feeling festive--- until the last half hour of the Humanitarian Bowl. I'm not a U of I grad, but my oldest brother is and though he's serving with the U.S. State Dept. in Tel Aviv, I could could feel his Vandal pride across the miles.
2010 is on the way with a blue moon to boot.
So I'll raise my coffee mug to all you Hucksters and advise you to make the most of the last day of 2009! And do yourself a favor and give this a listen.
