That was worth staying up late for, and dragging it out of bed with even less sleep than normal.
When all hope was just about lost, and when the season was on the line in game 5, the Brownies pulled it off. They beat the undefeated Super Bowl champion New York Giants. I collapsed on the floor and sobbed.
Whether or not the season falls to crap from here on out, or if we’re relegated (once again) to saying, “Meh, maybe next year” come December, this one will still have been fun. The Browns have stunk up the joint on national TV for several years running now; it was nice to see something positive for a change.
So shines a good deed in a weary world.
I can finally, maybe, be free of my dad’s constant chant of “Brady Brady!”
I hate the Quinn and am a huge Anderson to Edwards fan. I also like Heiden better than Winslow. (Come on now. Winslow can catch, but Heiden can catch AND block.) I also didn’t think the defensive secondary was as bad as the media made it out to be. Imagine this team once you add strong safety Sean Jones, Joe Jeruvicious, and Kellen Winslow to what they did last night. They’re back to being the high flying, loose cannon offense they were last year with an improved defense. Time to get excited, folks!!!
Oh, and by the way… GO RAYS!
Good for you, girlie. Having been a California Angels fan (yes, they USED to be the California Angels) since the late 70’s, I know what it is to love the perennial underdog, and wait several lifetimes for them to finally come through.
Enjoy the moment in the sun!
@ Stein – Time to get excited indeed! They got some much-needed momentum Monday night – especially without Winslow and Jurevicius. I hope they can go to Mary Land this weekend and keep it going.
@ PK – Hey friend! Seems we both have decades-long membership in the “Maybe Next Year” club. Thanks for the good karma – and hey, aren’t you ready to register for Fall II???
If anyone really wants to be a member of the “Wait til next year” club, you have to beccome a Cubs fan. :((
Yeah, I know RD…seems we both get an awful lot of practice saying that phrase!
