Game Of The Year

Indianapolis played New England today. Did you know that? Yeah, well, they did. Did you know they were both undefeated? Because they were. And it was the game of the week. Nay, the game of the year. Big time important.

If you're a true football fan you'd know that already. You'd also know that if you accidentally planned a trip to Sea World the same weekend as the game of the year and your husband loves football and insisted on getting up early so you could drive home in time for the game of the year kickoff.

When he initially told you his plan, you probably thought he was kidding. And when he literally rolled on top of you and started bouncing the entire bed bright and early that morning, you probably still thought it was a joke. But I'm pretty sure you knew he meant business when you got out of the shower and found all the blankets folded and the bags packed.

Everybody knows the game of the year can only be watched alone in your bedroom with the lights off. During halftime it's okay to use the bathroom and ask your wife how she feels about pizza for dinner. But then you need to get back to the game because the halftime report is on and watching that is kinda sorta critical to an overall understanding of the game. And let's all get it through our thick skulls that we need to keep our yaps shut and not get in front of the television.

Game of the year, Care Bear, game of the year.

I'm stopping by on my way to commenting on as many NaBloPoMo blogs as possible as part of the NaBloPoMo commenting challenge. :)

Somehow I think y'all could have stayed in the hotel - the game was being broadcast to the whole country (except for Houston & Cleveland), so I don't think you could have missed it that easily. :)

Oh contrare. The game didn't start until well after checkout time at the hotel. It was just bad timing. Although I did't really mind getting on the road early. I just thought my husband's brisk pace in the morning was amusing considering he's normally slower to get going.

Ok, so, I don't know who you were pulling for, but hubs and I were NOT happy with the results.


We *heart* The Cowboys. ;-)

I was about to say "I hope your husband is a Pats fan" but then I clicked your link and am guessing he's not. So, eek, sorry.

Technically, my husband was rooting for Indy. But he's not really a fan of either one. He just loves football and that was a truly great match up. He felt bad for Peyton after the game but declared it a great game and was very glad he got to see it.
