Super Bowl XL – Extra Large Disappointment

I would say that the Seahawks are my favorite team. Maybe enough time with more seasons like this year will sway me. I mean, I’ve never lived in a state before Washington that had an NFL team so I basically latched onto a team that was close.
But last night during Super Bowl XL was a disappointment. Yes, I’m happy our team won the NFC championship, but things seem to fall apart – especially in the last half – and our team started playing like last season’s team. We dropped the ball numerous times and our placekicker missed two field goal attempts that could’ve won us the game if we hadn’t let Steeler’s Parker through like a hot knife through butter, or if our last drive in the 4th quarter would’ve landed us a touchdown.
To add insult to injury the calls seemed very one-sided. Save the false start call against the Steelers in the first quarter I don’t remember another call against them. No one’s that squeaky clean. And I don’t care if there isn’t a foul for it or not, Steeler’s quarterback Roethlisberger was dirty cheater when the bawl landed short of the end zone and he moved it into the end zone after it was down thinking he wouldn’t get caught. After review he still caught it but it was difficult to tell if the ball broke the end zone line or not. Being that Roethlisberger’s arm was masking the end of the ball I don’t see how the ref could’ve given it to them. He seemed to have it out for us (not that every call was bad, but certainly a couple were).
It was just a night of disappointment. Congratulations for winning the NFC championship, though, Seahawks’s. Do it again next year.
On the plus side many of us at our friends’ house in Kenmore were enjoying the non-stop playful (most times) fighting between Suzie and their little beagle Charlie. It’s a good thing they were just playing – Suzie’s not a very good fighter and spent more time on her back (even by her own action).
