Chirp, Chirpy Chirp!

Great goodness gracious! The Arizona Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl!

I'll be the first to admit that I'm even less than a fair-weather fan, since today's game (well, the last 5 minutes of today's game) is all I've watched of the entire football season.

What makes me feel so warm and fuzzy about this win is that the biggest Cardinal fan I ever met, one of Mr. Wonderful's dearest friends and former roommate DJ, passed away unexpectedly last year. We've thought about DJ often throughout the planning our wedding, as his absence as a groomsman is sorely felt.

Mr. Wonderful loves to share stories about DJ with me, as I was just getting to know him when he passed. One of my favorite tales was about how much of a die-hard Cardinals fan DJ was, no matter how poorly they did (which was quite often). DJ would call people to wake them up on game day and just sing "Chirp, chirpy chirp! Chirp, chirpy chirp!" to the tune of the Ukrainian Bell Carol.

I'd like to think he's chirpy-chirping up there in heaven right now. This win's for you, DJ!

Aw, that's so nice! And I'm happy because I have had a crush on Matt Leinart for about 6 years now!

so when I was in Madison LBP said "who the heck ever thought Arizona would host the NFC Championship???" And tonight I got a text "who the heck ever thought Arizona would be in the Superbowl???" Would love to be in AZ right now, you??? I know that DJ is cheering up in heaven, for sure! xoxo Lu!
