Me too after Pack loss yesterday. I’m like a stunned zombie.

A last minute field goal, if you please. They got the ball back on their own 45 and did have a chance. As slim as it was, it was well within the realm of possibility. They had one play to make field goal range. Didn't do that and had the Hail Mary, which failed miserably, but the ball did make it to the endzone.

Good to learn about sports disappointments early. There are many in life. I’m just bummed we won’t get to see Wilson again. I mean, what’s more boring than watching Matt Ryan play?

Poor kid - Falcons did all they could to give the game away, too.
I was about 10 years older than her at the time, but I felt the exact same way Bills vs. Giants Superbowl XXV - Scott Norwood final kick - wide right. Tell her to look for it on youtube.

Seattle lost cuz:
The coach went for it on 4th down instead of kicking a field goal early in the game.
Coach calling a crappy play that ended up with a sack and running out of time in the 1st half - when they coulda gotten another field goal.
Coach calling a timeout on the last-second Atlanta kick [it went wide-right], giving Atlanta another kick [it sailed thru the uprights].
Just sayin’ ...

I react the same way every season. It’s hard being a Vikings fan...
I almost wish they would have overturned the last Seahawks touchdown, so they could have run a little more time off the clock, or at least to force Atlanta to use up their timeouts.

Did you hear the one about Roethlisberger, Manning, Romo and Cutler walk into a bar?

As a Falcon fan, tell her the pain will ease.
The Falcons broke my heart by blowing a lead in a playoff game against the Cowboys in 1981.
Today made up for it so tell her it only hurts for 31 years. :)
That’s how I felt when I was 10 and I saw the refs steal the ‘84 OU-Texas game from the Sooners with several horrible calls; the ‘Horns managed a tie with a last second field goal.

It’s always interesting that there just happens to be video camera set up and running in these situations.

1. Folks need to learn how to lose gracefully. (and not claim that you *didn't* call timeout, when you clearly did)
2. I wish I saw this much emotion about stuff that matters.
