In (American) football, victory formation is used when the quarterback takes the snap and immediately kneels to the ground, ending the play on contact. Typically, it’s run when a team is winning and just needs the clock to run down, in order to preserve the win.
After almost 26 months (!!) we are running victory formation in our household.
Today is the day Dave presented and defended his thesis (and received an “A – Excellent” mark, I might add). He is now a Master of Viticulture and Enology.
Today, we celebrate. I’ll write more about my thoughts on this whole adventure later, once I wrap my mind around the fact that it’s coming to an end and that we (he) did it.
For now, I’m just going to let the clock run out on our European adventure and enjoy victory.
