What a game!
Too keep it interesting my husband and I decided to root for different teams. We both love the Patriots but he decided to go for the Falcons. We drove to Palm Springs to enjoy the game with friends, loads of Mexican food and snacks galore…and drinks of course.
We were surprised that everyone (10 of us) wanted the Falcons so we rooted for our beloved Patriots. Things were not going so well but we figured Brady would rise to the occasion so we took the jabs and barbs and there were plenty of them. I said things like, Brady doesn’t get sacked as I watched him getting beat up quite a bit and by the end of the second quarter I was starting to make excuses for Tom! Maybe the Falcons should win, it’s their turn and The Patriots dominate and have won so many times, how many rings does Tom need?
By the end of the third quarter I was giving in to the masses, Brady was going to go down, but my dear husband said “It’s not over yet” never count the Patriots out. Secretly I was hoping Tom would ring up Erin Rodgers and ask him to mentally orchestrate one of his famous last minute Hail Mary’s, he would need three though…..the odds were not good.
Then the last quarter was upon us and something happened….
We all sat in stunned silence, it was crazy…I actually was thinking good thoughts for the Falcons who certainly had nothing to be ashamed of. I have a weakness for the underdog and it was beginning to show….and just when I said “It would be nice for the Falcons to win…that darn wonderful Brady and his team…did it again!
Best game ever!
