So it seems that I can pick a winning football team in the playoffs. In fact, from the looks of today’s scores I am able to pick two.
Both of the teams that I chose to win today did and at the same time I got to inflate my over-inflated ego yet further. I was also able to celebrate the fact that two very close friends of mine were going to be elated at their team going to the big game. Throw in the fact that my man, Kurt Warner, gets to go back to the Super Bowl and life today was all sorts of good.
My friend Mike is a huge fan of the Cardinals. He has been for years. Since I am a huge fan of Kurt Warner I was totally able to cheer for the Cards during their furious first half of scoring. I was also able to worry during their third quarter meltdown and cheer again when they pulled out the win.
My best friend Ray is a die-hard Steelers fan. I swear if he cut himself he would bleed black and gold. Yes, he loves the Steelers. And since he is my best friend I do too. So it was easy to cheer for them in their victory over Baltimore. The game was a snooze-fest, but Palumalu’s interception for a score late in the fourth made it worth watching.
So I am patting myself on the back right now. I have not been able to pick a winner for my life this post season. Until today. I am a little proud of me right now. Hopefully two weeks from now I will be able to say the same thing.
