We were sitting around the table eating dinner with
friends by 1:30 pm.. on Sunday... with the Seahawk
and the Green Bay Packers playing in the background.
None of us are real big football fans.. might say
occasional fans. No real big favorite team.
But as an Northwest resident, we lean toward
the Seahawk.. but mostly just like a good close
After dinner we started to play a game called
Mexican train. With a few remarks about the
team. Me, talking about our neighbor's son,
who lives in Colorado, who is a die in the
wool Green Bay Packer fan... and how he must
be in his glory and rubbing it in to his Seahawks
friends... and others who must be greatly
disappointed in their Seahawks going down.
After a few games of the Mexican train, we
were checking again on the score.. had been
16 to 0, last time we check.. thinking maybe
the 3rd quarter..now the ending of the 4th quarter
and remarking like it was as good as over for the
Seahawks, when all of a sudden the Seahawks
made a touch down.
But knowing it was a long way to catching up.
Next time we see the score 19 to 22.. and then
22 to 22 and over time.. AMAZING, as they had
done this in 3 minutes.
Our game stopped as we watched the game on
the television that just got to be really interesting..
and then it came to an big bang up end..
The announcer yelling THE SEAHAWKS ARE
GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!THE SEAHAWKS
ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!! THE
SEAHAWKS ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!
Our little group went from a little amusement at
the game, to wow, they are gaining. Holy cow they
have a chance to ...THEY WON.. and this is
from 4 occasional football watchers and one
"I don't like football and the Super bowl is a
waste of time", guy. All a sudden my husband
the one who doesn't like football, became a
expert on the game... and how Green Bay
gave it away... He thought about calling the
neighbors son, to rub it in.. but thought, he
is probably in too much misery to pick on...
So you don't have to be a real football fan
to enjoy a good game.
Now the Patriots and the Colts was a bore,
and we quickly abandon the game, with a
game of 45 to 7.. well, it just didn't measure
