How The Mighty Have Fallen
It has taken me a couple of weeks to let it sink in, but I did not win the recliner in the local prep football contest. I am sorely disappointed. The paper ranked me as finishing in 4th place, but that's a dirty lie. There were only two people ahead of me, the winner and one other. I finished 3 points out of the lead. The winner garnered 135 points, a sports reporter for the paper earned 134, and me, myself and I brought up position #3 with 132. The person after me had only amassed 131, so tell me, please, how that puts ME in 4th place. If only two are ahead of you, isn't that 3rd? That's what I'm calling myself, anyway. The bronze medal winner of the prep football contest.
