Winning is a beautiful thing

And that was a beautiful game by the Saints.

Well maybe not the first quarter. I was a little stressed. My husband brought me over a bottle of tequila and a shot glass….after that second touchdown by the Lions the tequila didn’t help me much.

But then those all mighty Saints turned it around and put on offensive clinic for Detroit.

They are just flat out insane.

So thrilled that my boss let me go home early today so I could watch the magic happen.

Stoked to see the Saints take on the Niners next week….seeing as how San Francisco was the nearest team as I grew up. Bring it!

By the way, next door neighbors and people who live under us….I’m sorry for the screaming, yelling, banging and stomping. It won’t happen again. Until next week. 🙂

Welcome to Wild Card Saturday!

I wish I could say I was in for a fun filled day of some serious football watching but sadly I can’t say that because I will be at work for both of today’s games.

So I am predicting victories today for Houston and for New Orleans.

Oh how I wish I could watch the latter of those two games.

I’m not going to even attempt to predict the scores because I just suck at that but I think it’ll still be a great day of football, and more fun to come tomorrow!

What about you? Like my picks? Any score predictions?

My mother just nearly gave me a heart attack….

She called me. And mind you I’m three hours ahead of her, so it’s just after 10 p.m. my time.

Mom: (enthusiastically) Are you watching your boys???

Me: (confused) ummm….no?

Mom: Why not?!?!?!

Me: Are they even playing?

Mom: Yes! They’re playing the Lions…it’s almost over…..

Now I’m bewildered because I assume she’s talking about the Kings – now I’m really lost…..

Me: The Saints?

Mom: Yes, the Saints, and there’s only six minutes left.

Me: No! They don’t play until Saturday….I know this because I’m going to miss most of the game because I have to work and I’m pissed.

Mom: No seriously, they’re playing now…..

Me: Are you sure it’s not a replay? What channel are you watching? Is the score roughly 31-17? Because I think this has already happened.

Mom: The NFL channel. No, it’s on right now, you’re missing it.

So my darling husband hears my panic that I just might possibly be wrong and actually did miss the game so he turns it on to see that yes, it is on, but it also says it aired 12/4/11. I knew I wasn’t crazy.

Then she continues with her madness….

Mom: So did you see who the Kings hired as their new coach?

Me: Not yet, who?

Mom: Phil Jackson.

Me: (horrified, terrible silence) Uhhhh you’re joking right?

Mom: No, they announced it today.

Me: No. You can’t be serious.

Mom: Hahaha. No, you’re right. They said Coach Smart is going to take over head coaching duties.

Me: That was just mean.

Mom: (still laughing) Yeah, your dad just said that was pretty mean of me too.

Sigh. Thanks for the near heart attack mom. Love you too.
