This is a day I’ve been dreading for a week.
This was supposed to be our day. We were supposed to be playing for the right to go to the Super Bowl at Texas Stadium. Just imagine how we’d be feeling right about now; so much energy and expectations we’d be busting out of our skin. That was supposed to be us today. Instead, that right belongs to the Giants. And to the fans of the other three teams. We just weren’t good enough to get it done.
Enough of the pity party, this is sports and this is what happens. If you didn’t have the heartbreak, then the highs wouldn’t mean nearly as much.
I told my bud DCFanatic that I wasn’t going to watch the games today, especially the NFC game, but I knew I’d breakdown. It’s still football, and with so few games left to be played until everybody’s offseason begins, I got to get my football fix.
This is an open thread for the Conference Championship games today.
