Currently I'm about 22 hours into my self-allowed one week of misery after every tough loss. In other words, I'm in the thick of it and my students can tell you, it isn't pretty. Also, I slept for about an hour and a half last night and had to teach second grade for nine hours today. So, it was not. a. good. day.
This afternoon, though, it got a little bit better when I saw this photo. These are the crowds of people standing in the cold at Gillette to welcome the team home from the Superbowl today. I'm proud to be part of a fan base that welcomes their team home, win or lose. No matter how far away I live, I'll always be a New England girl.
