Late Losses

I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home from work on Friday. Dad had something to do early this morning and was gracious enough not to subject me to rising early, which was nice because I got to bed so late the night/morning before. I did have to wake up at 8:30 to cover the phones for about an hour and then went back to bed for a while. I didn’t do much of anything the rest of the day.I was at home all day Saturday watching football. Tulane played this evening and there were some other big games going on that night. I moved my TV into the living room so we could watch the Tulane and LSU games at the same time. Tulane played at Army this evening. Speaking frankly, they have a pretty lousy team and we should have win, and nearly did. With three minutes left in the game, we had a 17-7 lead. Army managed to tie the game with a one-in-a-million hail mary catch on the last play of regulation. We held Army to a field goal in the first possession of overtime. Army’s defense held us and we missed the field goal, ending the game with a humiliating defeat. That wasn’t the biggest upset that evening, though, as Stanford defeated USC this evening.On Sunday, Dad and I went to the Saints game with my co-worker Bianca. She had some spare tickets because her husband was out of town. Like the Tulane game, things were looking up until the end of the game approached. There were a couple of critical interceptions that kept the Saints from pulling ahead. Carolina scored a tie-breaking field goal on the last play of the game. The Final was 13-16, sinking the Saints to 0-4.
