Well, it had to happen. At some point in my life the Patriots would have to make the Superbowl against the Seahawks. My beloved team (ok my team, I don’t know if i would say Beloved since I haven’t followed them my entire life etc) beat the Colts last night (in a wet wet thumping) and now play against the Seahawks (who beat the packers in a pretty epic game to be honest) in 2 weeks time. Now how do you handle a person who has been a Seahawks fan all her life, lives in Seattle, breathes Seattle and is die hard. Well I just have to.
But this post really has a history stemming back to the start of the season, Heidi & I put down a bet that had to do with our teams. If either of our teams make the superbowl, then that person could have a new jersey ready for the superbowl if they want. However there was a 2nd clause. If either person’s team won the superbowl, then the other party in the marriage had to have a jersey of that team. This could get very interesting, as now that both of our teams are in the superbowl, 1 of us is getting 2 new jerseys, it is just going to be a matter of who gets an unwanted jersey 😉
To ensure safety and sanity in our household for the next two weeks, Heidi & I have banned all football talk, so this will be the last from me in regards to this game. Heidi & I both want to make sure we come out of this in one whole piece and intact with sane minds. But I know we can do it! I am not going to spend the next two weeks throwing the patriots out there, I will be respectful (since I like my life in one piece) and I will only talk about the game unless someone approaches me about it. That way I don’t have people saying I am the one starting stuff.
I will end with one thing.
