A quick little story...

I sent an email to the Ohio State Cheerleading program a couple of weeks ago with a picture of Kylie in her OSU cheerleading uniform. This is what I sent:

Good morning,

This is quite possibly the least important email you’ll get today. It also might be the most fun.

My name is Matt…I live in the suburbs of Kansas City with my wife, Jody, and our 23-month old daughter, Kylie. Jody is originally from NE Ohio, so she’s a Buckeye fan. We were in Ohio in late July to take Kylie to the Cleveland Clinic to see her neurologist (long, long story). While we were in Ohio we stayed with Jody’s day during our stay, Kylie’s grandpa decided to get her an OSU cheerleading uniform. We put her in it for the first time this weekend…and she absolutely loved it. Here’s a pic of her jumping on the couch.

For a little background on that “long story”…

I was hoping for, but not necessarily expecting, a response. I just thought it was a super-cute picture that I would share with the Buckeye's cheerleading program. Well, much to my surprise, I checked my email on Friday and had this waiting for me:

Hello Matt,

She is so cute – can you please send us your address – we would like to send Kylie some Buckeye stuff.

She is in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you for sharing.

I looked her up and she is indeed the head coach of the Ohio State Spirit Program (aka Cheerleading). Seriously. How awesome is that!?
