So football yesterday sucked. The Chargers lost. Then the Packers lost. That would've been a FUN Super Bowl, y'know? Chargers vs. Packers?!? Le awesome. Now we're all reduced to rooting for the Giants to spoil the Patriots' perfect year.

The Packers had chances but didn't capitalize on them, and they didn't play as well as is usual. Defense, particularly against the pass, was uncharacteristically sluggish, and special teams were a bit off on returns (and punting, dear lord). Too many 3-and-outs. Maybe the defense was tired by all their time on the field (though if I had to play in -1 to -4 degree weather with -24 windchill, I'd prefer to be on the field, getting "warm" through exertion!). They were truly lucky that Tynes missed those field goals in regulation. I couldn't *believe* he missed that fairly short one at the end of the game. What a relief!! A short-lived one, of course, since he had to go and *redeem* himself in overtime (the nerve!).

It was a great run though--13-3 and through 2 of 3 weeks of playoffs.
