It may be that faith is no more and no less a choice between the words “it may be so” and “I will live as if it is so.

This whole thing is great-as is the entire Pro Basketball Prospectus 2010-11-but I especially love the comparisons.

I think I have some great news, financially, even though I still have no job and few prospects. Driving ten hours by myself out of the last 44 gave me the time to remember some important things. Of course, it didn’t help my fantasy football performance. That part of my life is still in shambles.

Chinua Achebe must have been thinking about what the fall of 2010 would look like for me when he decided on his most famous book title.

Indeed they do.

I know, I’ll go sub and save money and then move to Chicago.

Except that I won’t be able to sub, so I won’t make any money.

I know, I’ll look for other jobs in the area.

Except I decided to coach-a good decision, I still think-and that starts every weekday at four and means I’m gone every weekend, which takes out some possibilities. Oh yeah, and except that I’m starting to look at jobs that would be tough for me to feel good about leaving once I’ve made enough money to move to Chicago

OR

Except they’re too far away from where I’m living now to actually be feasible, so I’d have to move, but then I’m not living rent-free anymore which defeats the purpose of leaving comfortable old Roseburg and means that Chicago is even further away (again).

I know, I’ll wallow in self-pity for a little while and wish that everything in life was quick and easy.

Except I don’t really want that…
