    Have had the pleasure of getting to know Meg this past year. She embodies Zag Nation!

    Very good stuff.

    IT's not just the winning, some of us here were there before the winning. She seems to sense that.

    Wonderful. Thanks for posting.


    Ironically, I was asked by two different people (here in Missouri) this past week about WHY I was such a zags fan. It's always SO tough to answer, because you can't really understand it unless you EXPERIENCE it, and you experience the family atmosphere of a zags game and the players/coaches, etc. You can't really put it into words.

    I think you just did explain it, quite well.

    Great piece by "Meg." I like her style... a lot. Love is the right way to sum it up too. <3

    As for her feeling that this year is different, I couldn't agree more. To quote one of our generation's greatest fake heroes, Bruce Wayne said it best: "Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded."

    This year is our reward. I feel it, just as Meg does. Go Bulldogs!!

    "But there comes a point when you realize that being a fan and caring so much isn’t really a choice..."

    I know what you mean. Great stuff, Meg.

    Reminds me of the Dickau quote "Great place, with great people." Or is that "special place, with special people" ?
