I know many of you are not football fans, but I gotta give kudos to the Seahawks for a nail-biting amazing game on Sunday. When we got to the fourth quarter, I thought for sure we were done. As in done done. Not going to get to do a repeat and play in the Super Bowl again this year.
Boy was I wrong.
So very wrong.
Going into halftime with a deficit of 16 points didn’t boost any confidence in the final outcome of the game, and as we crept towards the final minutes in the fourth quarter, I wonder how many people at the game had already made their way to their cars figuring the Packers were the ones going to the Super Bowl.
It’s always astounding when literally the last few minutes of the game determine the final outcome. Total edge-of-your-seat as you watch every move made, and acknowledge that the opposing team were definitely playing a great game and fighting their hardest to win.
To have a playoff game finish out in overtime is nerve wracking. But the celebration that transpired after the final touchdown was insane – We. WON. Super Bowl bound again – so exhilarating.
This was one of my favorite meme images that floated around Facebook afterwards:
And the fans were, as they’re wont to be, extra crazy loud – so much so, the seismic meter was going insane:
While I’ve always been a Packer’s fan because my best friend is one, my blood does run blue and green. Now who’s having a Super Bowl party we can come invade? I’ll bring wine.
Not a lot of random this week because I’m still in Seahawk’s victory mode and don’t want to babble on too much, especially since I’m hopping on the bandwagon again this week with Rory Bore’s Tuesday Chat – I had so much fun checking out the other chatter’s posts last week, and look forward to more fun this week, too!
This week’s prompt or question is:
If you could learn any one skill in the world without trying (like Matrix learning style), which would you pick?
That was a tough one, because I have the ability to pretty much do anything I set my mind to – or can figure out how to do something I don’t know how to do.
That being said, however, I think it would be awesome to learn how to do Kung Fu – just have it downloaded in your brain and you’re good to go with some cool moves like this:
The other thing I’ve always wanted to learn, but haven’t made an effort to do so yet, is speak French. I think it’s such a sexy language, I’d love to spout off nonsense sexily!
That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. And that means even if you don’t have a specific Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel post posted, you can still link up, I’m not picky. You don’t even have to add the badge, just link up so I can come harass you on your blog. I promise to play nice.
Link up your Random (or not) here:
I’ve also decided to adopt Xmas Dolly’s idea of adding an additional linky just to encourage more followers where you need it most. We can all use more followers, right? So feel free to link up any post on the first linky, and a follower linky on the second one. Let’s see if we can party like rock stars! Link up where you need to gain more followers here:
Keeping the random alive (barely) – feel free to snag a badge and play along – one for my wino friends:
And one for my non-wino friends:
