Better than winning

Philip and I (Emily) have known each other for a little over 5 years and been married for a little over 4 and 1/2 years. He was made known about my love for Mississippi State University early on. And although he has adopted that affection, he is still learning some of the intricacies of what it means to be devoted to the Maroon and White.

This past Saturday, Mississippi State played basketball against our bitter, in-state rival, Ole Miss. Mississippi State has not had a stellar basketball season and we weren't anticipated to beat Ole Miss this weekend in Starkville (the home of Mississippi State). However, the Bulldogs pulled out a 73-67 victory against the Bears!

The next morning, as we were getting ready for church, I asked Philip if he wanted to wear his brown or maroon sweater. He answered, "The maroon one to celebrate Mississippi State's win!" His enthusiasm was right on and I gladly pulled out that maroon sweater. However, I did have to correct him on this one small point: "Honey, beating Ole Miss is better than winning."
