SO CLOSE!.... yet so far....

The "Nail Biter!"

This is my family.... and we like football!Some of us more than others.....

My mom......
..........and meet my aunt Melanie.These ladies LOVE football!Throughout the game... I noticed that these 2 dedicated fans expressed themselves in VERY different ways. Whether the call was good or bad (as you will see) my mom chose the "Focus. Breathe and focus and don't pee your pants" face. Even if she changed locations...
Now Mel on the other hand.... favored the "What the! Are you serious?! UGH! OOH!" face. Observe. (note the vein bulging out of her neck. normal.)Melanie always makes it very entertaining! However... we all had our own reactions to when Fitzgerald put us ahead with that last touchdown in the 4th quarter!!! We thought we had it! :(2 fans. 1 dream. hahaha I've never seen them happier.And then it was all taken from us.Little Jake was in tears....

Garrison tried to offer words of comfort..."Jake think of it this way. If the Cardinals would have won, we would have been able to say they won the Superbowl. What good would that do?"... Not his best argument I must say. haha Good game.

Hahahaha leave it to Garrison! I was alerted of Fitzgerald's big run thing when my whole family screamed as loud as they could while I was sleeping. They even woke up the baby - and that takes a LOT to do! :)

I can't believe you were taking pictures through this, but thanks to you we have documentation of the most excruciating event of my life.

I'm still weepy. :(
