Polimom -among many others, I'm sure - is an avid Saints' fan, but as of this writing ... 2 pm on Monday, February 8, 2010 ... she has posted not one single word about the game yesterday. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What's THAT all about? Is she in a comatose state after their win? Is she ill? Is AC or someone else in her family ill, had an accident, or in the hospital? Has my son-in-law forbidden her from publicly crowing and screaming to the skies, "YESSS!" What's going on there, anyway??
Her lack of saying anything, particularly considering her last post in re the Saints in the playoff picture, has me nonplussed.
Did any of you watch? My sessions in the Regional tournament ended well before game time and I could have taken in the whole thing, starting with the kickoff, but I had some errands to run beforehand and then Stargate SG-1 came on.
However, I want all y'all to know that I was listening on the radio when the Colts were held - on their opening drive - to a field goal. I called Polimom and said, "I think that's a good sign." She agreed.
I called again after some extensive shopping, said I was on my way home and asked what was happening. Not too much, I was told. The Saints had been able to muster very little offense and the Colts had scored a touchdown on one of their next possessions.
By the time I got all of the groceries unloaded from the car and put away - television on the whole time, of course, so I could keep up with what was going on - I learned that the second quarter belonged almost entirely to the Saints. Hmm!
I sat down to watch for a bit. After all, SG-1 wasn't due to come on for a while yet and there'd been a time in my not that distant past when I was a football 'maniac'.
I called my son-in-law to try and tell him the Saints should have gone for the fullback up the middle when it was first and goal from the three-yard line. However, he misunderstood what I was trying to say and thought I was predicting the next play call. Noo, I wasn't.
I watched with absolute and utter glee and delight when the Saints led off the second half with an onside kick whose outcome - for several minutes, it seemed like - was undecided. I thought that was one of the funniest things I had ever seen, and hope they (my daughter and her family) were able to tape it so they could play it back again and again and again. Hilarious!
I called Polimom, who answered the phone with, "Hahahahahahaha!"
Later, during a commercial break for SG-1, I had the lucky happenstance to catch the interception that was run back for a touchdown. That was exciting!
Then today, while driving back and forth from the eye doctor appointment, I had sports talk radio on. Interesting, the comments. They varied greatly, depending on whether or not the caller was a Saints' or Colts' fan, as you might imagine.
What about you? Did you watch?
