One season ends, another begins
Well, tonight's the final performance episode of this season's So You Think You Can Dance, and here in Shelby County, Ohio - HOME OF KENT BOYD - we've been watching with great pride as our little hometown boy has overcome the perceived "disadvantages" of growing up in a small town and attending a small local dance studio as his only training. He's certainly given us reason to be proud, hasn't he?
I haven't voted for the past few weeks - though when things started, I was putting in between 450 and 500 votes each week. I'll be back to dialing tonight for sure!
There's a parade planned for Kent this Saturday, as he'll be returning home to Botkins - presumably not for long. The kids and I will be attending. What an exciting development for our little corner of the world!
Naturally, also in my mind and boosting my adrenaline levels is the start of the Premier League season this weekend. I got to see that great 3-1 win over Chelsea in the Community Shield, and that particular match-up is always my favorite. It more than the top two clubs battling it out - it's a replay of the very first match I ever saw.
The first Manchester United match isn't until Monday, but fortunately, that's my slow day at work (no Tuesday paper), so I'll be leaving early and home in time for the match! Glory, glory Man United!
And Go Kent!
