The night before last week’s final round I watched the movie The Hunger Games and noticed a resemblance between Maddie and Jennifer Lawrence in the heroinic role of Katniss Everdeen. I mentioned this to Maddie that morning and concluded that all she needed was some collagen lip injections to complete the transformation as she already possessed the tenacity displayed on screen by the character. As we finished our warm-up and headed to the practice green, I continued the theme with this one line pep talk. “Let’s go get ‘em Katniss”. And she certainly did.
Her contact info on my cell now reads Madeleine Katniss Sheils.
