I admit, I was surprised to learn last week that the Seahawks had made the playoffs with a losing record. It did not sit well. I do not follow football very much, unless the team actually does something significant. This qualifies.
My friends have been buzzing about the football game all week. I am not sure how many actually went. I had no intention of dealing with the monstrous traffic leading anywhere near downtown and Qwest Field. I get irritated after just a few minutes of traffic. I would have likely been dealing with hours of it had I tried to go anywhere near downtown today.
But I listened with a slightly curious ear as the the football game started. Mom came down at one point to announce that the Seahawks were ahead. And then, the game was over. The Seahawks had surpassed my expectations. You see, I have been telling myself all week that the team might very well get stomped by the Saints. That way, if they did lose, I would not be too discouraged. But they won. And I am sitting here with a goofy grin from ear to ear.
Good job, team. I hope you can keep it up.
