Underdogs Unite!

UnderdogsUniteI almost typed Underdogs "Untie!"-- which would have been quite the Underdog move to do.

For those of you who are old enough to have enjoyed the old cartoon as much as I did, I hope you'll get a kick out of seeing this little guy in my sidebar.

My friend Kate from The Big Piece of Cake created a site for those of us who may not be at the top of everyone's list or even always at the top of our games, but who keep writing, and who keep showing up.

We are people who love to blog and who appreciate YOU every time you stop by. Kate suggested I join after she read of my delusions of grandeur last week.

Having gone to an Underdog high school and then returned to that same school to teach, I have always had a soft spot for Underdogs-- in sports, in history in dating, in life.

When a former boyfriend met Tom shortly after Tom and I started dating and said haughtily to me, "He just doesn't seem to be Anna See material," --whatever the heck that means-- ding! ding! ding! my Underdog radar went off and that ex did more to help win Tom this fantabulous example of womanhood than he will ever know.

If proclaiming ourselves Underdogs gets us any more recognition in the blogosphere, super, but if not, I'll always be proud to be an Underdog.

Yeah! Everyone loves an underdog. At least I think so.

Thanks for joining (even though I made you join - it still counts!)
