Dealing With A Loss

I should know better than to write about my sports teams.  This isn't a sports blog.  But, as I mentioned in a post from a few days ago, I take my sports fanaticism very seriously.

My Pittsburgh Steelers were playing a Divisional playoff game today against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Steelers were heavy favorites.  Unfortunately, the Steelers got behind early, and it snowballed from there.  The score is not indicative of how badly they played, and the Jags got the victory, eliminating the Steelers, 45-42.  The Jags go on to play the New England Patriots next week in the AFC Championship.  The Steelers season is now over.

The second game today, between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints, went down to the wire, with the Saints getting a late, come from behind lead, but, with 10 seconds left, the Vikings scored an incredible touchdown as the clock expired to pull out a win.  I imagine, as bad as Pittsburgh fans feel today, the New Orleans fans feel a lot worse.

Anyway, given the loss and feeling crummy already due to a bad cold I just can't seem to shake, I'm going to skip writing a full post this evening.

Have a great evening, everyone.
