Maybe Next Year

Way back in September I blogged about my hopes for a great football season. It was great, and now it's over. There are still a few more games ahead of us, but the teams Chad and I watch are done until 8/09.

The Tide fell to Florida for the SEC Championship, and then again to Utah in the Sugar Bowl. The Florida game was great, and Alabama did great. Sugar Bowl, not so great. Let's say the losers creed together: "Maybe next year"

I wasn't sure what the Panthers were gonna be able to do this year, but I was hopeful. And then after the season got underway, and Mohammed and Smith were in great sync, I was really hopeful for at least the NFC Championship, and maybe just maybe the Superbowl(wow, what a sentence). Well, they too let me down on Saturday evening. It was a pitiful game. I have been a Delhomme fan for a while now. Defended him and his quarterbacking abilities to my husband. After Saturday, I think I might need to rethink my official position. It really was a pitiful sight. What to do? I don't know. It was just sad.

Then, on Sunday we caught just a few minutes(and I mean less than 15 of game time) of the Giants and Eagles game. I got to see my first safety ever. I've heard talk of the safety, but never realized the potential of sacking the QB in the endzone. I was very excited to get to see that. So then, I was hopeful that Eli Manning(the Manning's fascinate me, I don't really know why, but I find them interesting) could lead the Giants to the NFC Championship, and maybe the Super Bowl for a 2nd year. Not happening.

I'm beginning to think it's me. I seem to be the common denominator.

The Loser's creed, all together now:

"Maybe next year"
