We spent the morning at Laurie's, and prepared to watch the Michigan/OSU basketball game. It began in the most miserable fashion imaginable. Ended with hope - came close, but no cigar. We were bummed. This is their first defeat this season. They are now 16-1
U-M Unable to Complete Rally at No. 15 Ohio StateDylan went to at tennis clinic with Cyrus at Martin Downs from 12 to 3. He was wounded when he got home. He fell on the court - skinned his left arm rather badly, scraped his left hand, and has a big bruise on his left side. He also had a sight fever and wasn't feeling too well to begin with - so he's really out of it this afternoon. I just hate it when he doesn't feel well - but he gets lots of care and attention, of course.

Next U-M Event: Thursday, Jan. 17 -- at Minnesota (Minneapolis, Minn.), 6 p.m. CST (TV: ESPN)COLUMBUS, Ohio -- After trailing by as many as 21 points in the first half, the University of Michigan men's basketball team (No. 2 AP/No. 2 ESPN/USA Today) rallied to tie the game in the second half at 46-all but could not take the lead from Ohio State (No. 15 AP/No. 14 ESPN/USA Today) and suffered its first loss of the season, 56-53, on Sunday (Jan. 13) inside Value City Arena.
After the basketball game (boo) Laurie, Andi and I went to the movies to see Silver Linings Playbook. I was really impressed with Jennifer Lawrence's performance - it was such a different role than the Hunger Games - and she did both of them admirably. The story is a fun story, even though it sounds a little strange to have bipolar disease be part of a comedy. We all enjoyed it, except some of the hand held photography made Andi a little queasy. We all agreed afterwards that if that couple marries, they should never have children!
We got to the movie too late to stand in line for popcorn, so when we got back to Laurie's we had popcorn for supper while we watched still more football...
At the end of the day, back at Loch Lane, I watched the latest episode of Downton Abbey - Yay!
