What A Game!
What a game and I watched all of it! Wow! First of all I really don't watch football but I enjoy hearing it and seeing the guys watch it. It gives me warm fuzzies inside. :) Also reminds me of fall (favorite time of year) and my uncle and aunt and my time living with them at the lake house.
My husband and younger son went up to older son's to watch on larger screen TV. Then husband came home at half time to go to bed because he gets up early. I was busy but started thinking that since it is a home team that I would put it on to see how they were doing.
I came into it with 4 minutes left. I was happy to see that the Giants were winning 10 to 7 and I was thrilled when they got the touch down giving them 14 points! Then...I realized that New England was wearing the blue Jerseys! YIKES!
I was riveted to the game. I can only imagine how all you football die-hards were feeling.
My husband woke up and came out when they were stopped on 10 seconds left in the game. I told him to hurry up to come in watch because the Giants were now winning with 10 seconds to go. We are all happy about the win. :)
Wow...the Patriots were 18 and 0 and the favored ones. Both teams played hard but only one can win in the end. Then when I heard that someone from the Patriots had been secretly been filming other teams practice sessions which is cheating and illegal and that the coach was fined 500 thousand dollars for that...it made the victory sweeter still. I don't know anything about football...but if they were able to learn competing teams secret signals etc., that is like reading their minds and CHEATING! Maybe they aren't really as good. Maybe they had inside information. Too bad things like that happen, whether secretly filming another team or pumping up with steroids...it's cheating. Therefore any win is not a REAL win. It also hurts the players that do have real talent...on many levels...not to mention the whole idea of sportsmanship in the first place. I have never understood the cheating mentality. Really...I do not get it! Even if no one knows... you didn't really win because you cheated and YOU KNOW! Where is the victory there?
GO Giants!!! :)
