Well, I just put my furious 8 year old to bed. I can hear him kicking the bed upstairs. I'll go up in a few minutes and attempt to "talk him down" again, but I wanted to drop a line over here to Cheese Head Nation.
Congratulations on a great game. Your defense frustrated the Steelers enough and your offense drove us batty. I'm not a whiny "we beat ourselves" fan or ref-blamer. You won. Straight up. Hell of a game. I sincerely want to kick your asses next year, but you're a class organization and seem to be great fans as well. If there was an NFC team I wouldn't be upset to lose to, it's your team and Atlanta. Enjoy the ride, it's the finest narcotic there ever is for a true fan.
I now need to tell my son again that the Steelers can't win the Bowl every year. Again.
