I'm still in my Denver hat today.
So yeah. Yesterday was brutal. When the second half started with Harvin returning the kickoff for a touchdown...it almost got comical. I mean, I had to laugh, otherwise I'd cry! Or start kicking things and screaming profanities. In front of the children. That wouldn't have been good. I think I said outloud, "I don't think it can get any worse." And it was like the football Gods laughed in my face. Bwahahahahaha! YES, IT CAN! When Manning set a record for most completions in a Super Bowl...but we still lost by 497 points?? That was comedy. Black Hearted Comedy.
As heartbroken and surprised as I was to see the game go down like that, the Seahawks played an amazing game and deserved to win. This morning at dropoff, one of the Dad's of a boy in Wyatt's class said to me, "That's a bold statement you're making with that hat today. You are brave." "Not brave," I replied. "They're just my team."
As much as yesterday sucked, that doesn't mean I don't still love them.
Today I will mend my broken heart with leftover cupcakes and focus my craziness elsewhere...like The Bachelor is on tonight, and my current book is getting zombie apocalypse good, and it's only 17 days til I see BG really close up. February...you started out with a kick in the gut, but I am ready for you.
