I will take a break from the broad brush of the Happy Society to note a specific happy thing in our little world: the Centre College football team has been invited to play in the NCAA playoffs in Division III (the most sensible division, I think). This is the first time the team has ever been in the NCAA playoffs, since the last time we were invited to post-season play - the 1955 Tangerine Bowl - came before the NCAA division system was in place.
Kickoff is at noon in our own stadium against Hampden-Sydney. I will give an update after the game.
Go Colonels! Play with dignity!
