|So...yesterday was senior day for our Wisconsin Badgers. We played the Iowa Hawkeyes and lost in overtime. It was a good game to watch, plenty of excitement and a lot of cheering for the home team, of course. Rae played great and I'm am constantly amazed at this young lady's energy and enthusiasm. It's contagious to everyone around her. It's always nice to win your last home game, but an overtime loss means the effort was there.
Have you ever had someone from the opposing team in front of you at at game on your home court? Having been on both sides (home and away games), I can say I respect respectful competition and cheering. It's part of the fun. So last night, this Hawkeye fan turns around and tells me "I know you love your team and everything, but you're hurting my ears". So, it's not like this guy sat quiet in his chair and didn't cheer, he was as loud as anyone around, as were the people around him. I hardly knew what to say AND I was watching the game!
So it got me to thinking afterwards, about how rude this guy was. I think truly if I had been a male, he would have said nothing. Maybe I wasn't prim and proper enough for a woman. For those of you that know me, you know I am not an obnoxious person, I love my team and I enjoy cheering them on. Because my voice isn't low and tenor, I shouldn't cheer?
I guess I should be honored that the tone of my voice carries out onto the court when the Badgers need the energy, right?
So I leave you with this: Let your voice be heard no matter how large or small.
And of course Go Badgers! Next game Purdue at the Big Ten Tourney on Friday.
