You win some You loose some
Well, we made it through regular season beyond expectations after the curve ball the off season threw us. We battled through the play offs to make it to "The Greatest Show on Earth" but we did't make it out on top. The English following this blog may not be sure what I am referring to but any American will know, I am speaking of my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers and the Superbowl last night. Excitingly enough the game was televised on BBC 1 for the 4th year in a row. May be American football will catch on here. Once again my husband and I stayed up beyond 3am to watch the action. We were down from the early minutes of the game, and although a valiant effort to come back brought us to within 3 points, we couldn't keep it together. Anyone from Pittsburgh always speaks as if they were on the field as well. We take our football (American football, not soccer) seriously and we bleed black and gold. We love our guys win, loose, or draw (not that we will stop at a tie, that is what overtime is for!) It is disappointing to be taking down our Terrible Towels knowing there is an "L" in the books for the final game, but we are already looking forward to next season and the excitement it will bring. A few less nail-biters of games might be nice!
