I feel very happy that we won but I'm happier for the coaches and players than I am for myself. These guys battled for all they were worth in order to pull out the win. I'm still amazed that we won and in the last 15 seconds as well. Heck of a season.
I agree 100%, Bubba. I've endured so much disappointment and heartbreak, through the years, I'm still having a hard time believing it's true. That's the kind of games we used to lose all the time. It was like it was unfolding in slow motion for me. My first thought was "oh no", he's trying to pass? Then when he let the ball go, I figured the db would intercept it. After Ali caught it, I was saying to myself make sure you have control and don't fumble. Then, for what seemed like forever, after they signaled touchdown I kept waiting for the announcer to say hold everything we have a flag on the field. I figured we'd get flagged for holding. Even on the last play, I figured something would happen and they'd score.
You and I must be made of similar cloth because I was feeling pretty much the same feelings. When your first two offensive plays end up with two 15 yard penalties, it looked like it was going to be a long day for the Cats ... and it was. I took a break from the computer after our game and besides letting the wife talk me into going out New Years's Eve I've been watching bowl games and basketball games. I've seen so many close games and comebacks in both sports, I'm in an overload state of mind.
