I never expected much of the Steelers this year. Not really. Young team, with a brand new coach, and I kind of assumed that we’d be lucky to go better than 8-8. Biut the boys surprised me a few times and low and behold we won our division and were in the playoffs.
I never expected us to do well in the playoffs. The team just wasn’t ready. I knew we’d be losing to the wildcard team.
But then we took the field and came out fighting. I had hope. At half time that had all but gone away, and I said as much when I posted more locker room pics of Sarah during the middle of the game.
But right after I posted, the mounted about the most impressive 4th quarter comeback I’ve ever seen. Not only mounted, but amazingly we even ended up ahead for a moment. I began get excited.
But it was not to be. At the end of the day it was not to be. There is no joy in Mudville.
I guess I’m putting the jersey away til fall.
