“I hope @BikerChick57 heart has been restarted.”
That was Dan’s tweet to me on Sunday when, for the second week in a row, my beloved Green Bay Packers won in overtime. By a hair.
Considering that they were playing the 0-12 Cleveland Browns (now 0-13), the game should have been over with by the third quarter. But this is the way the season has been since quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sidelined with a broken collarbone in mid October. His backup QB is still learning how to be a prominent player in the NFL and that doesn’t come without slip-ups and interceptions.
My response to Dan was “Geezuz, Mary and Joseph.” (My apologies to the big guy.)
Dan understands because his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers have had a few close calls this season. We’ve had one or two “Are you still breathing?” tweets after a game. Thankfully, the response is always, “Yes.”
It’s difficult being a die-hard football fan because it doesn’t come without pacing, anxiety, more pacing and heart palpitations during many of the games. Seriously, these two teams should be handing out defibrillators and respirators instead of cheesehead hats and terrible towels.
