What seemed like a good idea, wearing orange to support our iconic women’s basketball coach, took an unexpected turn Friday. As it turns out, the event was too popular and too well-received. When Pat stepped out to be embraced by her loyal fans, she was stricken with temporary blindness due to the overwhelming sea of orange. Also, in retrospect, it was decided that everyone dressing exactly alike might cause additional confusion to someone suffering from dementia.

[author’s note: I love Pat Summitt, and I’m just as distressed as everyone else about her health news – I just got sick of orange yesterday.]
