I've definitely lost track of the number of Ohio State football-related books on his shelves - a million, give or take! - so I thought maybe, just maybe he'd want to dive into one of the other half dozen sports bios I'd had under the tree for him this year first. HA! This book - focused on last year's championship season (and all of the great memories it holds for my husband) headed to bed with us Christmas night (I'm thinking about instituting a "no reading past 11pm" rule), and each night since I've been "treated" to a summary of the latest insights, situations, etc. from yet another OSU book he's devouring like it was a steak dinner in front of a man who hadn't eaten for a month. Urban Meyer really does seem committed to living a more even-keeled life, more mindful of his health, while re-committing himself to his family and finding terrific ways to encourage/inspire/motivate the young men who call him "Coach", and my husband's really enjoying this latest offering. I had to kid him last night though... "Now Hon, is this the SAME guy you couldn't say enough negative things about when he was coaching the Gators?" ;-) Hey, as far as I'm concerned, Coach Meyer and the team had another terrific season this year (I actually hate it when our favorite teams are ranked #1 right at the beginning of the year... can't imagine what kind of pressure that puts on players and a coach, with every opponent coming in ready to "leave it all on the field" against the top-ranked team.)
Really think this book is helping to take the "sting" out of the late season turn of events this past year, and now my sister and I need only to survive New Year's Day (with her hubs being as big of a Notre Dame fan as mine roots for OSU)... I think one of us is going to have a much easier time of it than the other! (GO BUCKS... PLEASE!!!)
