I don't know what happened. CJ has no real interest in sports -- either playing or watching. But, after our visit to Boone *and* the fact that her fourth grade teacher is an ASU graduate, she has suddenly become a mountaineer fan.

I promise you it has nothing to do with ASU's amazing three-peat. She has no idea about that and if she does, I believe she has no idea what that means...she has NEVER FOLLOWED ANY KIND OF SPORT BEFORE.

But last night, as she was flipping through channels, she stopped on a basketball game. Well, she passed a glimpse of the game and I heard her say "Wait" and went back to the basketball game. I was a little confused. Did she think this was a women's basketball game and she was looking for a particular player (we are going to a women's game in January and this has been discussed at her school's PE class)? She watched for about three minutes before she said, Oh, I thought Appalachian State was playing, then changed the channel.

Today, while browsing at the local Omega Sports store, she told me to be on the lookout for Appalachian State stuff. I thought she must be buying something for her teacher. We found some sweatshirts and she said "I want one for me!" Tim and I couldn't resist. Yes, it's close to Christmas but we caved -- and we had a coupon! So my little girl is running around the house with her Appalachian State University sweatshirt.

And I couldn't be prouder. :-)
