half time

A few members of the marching band came down to the sidelines at half time in tonight's volleyball game to entertain us - or at least to try and keep our anxious spirits up.  After last night's rout of Stanford, tonight's game against Cal (Berkeley, to those outside the US who aren't familiar with that little sporty abbreviation) was a nail biter - but we did, in the end, win in the fifth set.  I'm not sure that my nerves can take much more of this season ... but at the same time, I have been so deeply grateful for it as a preoccupation that - this time last year, say - I couldn't possibly have guessed would come my way.
