Man, the Falcons loss was tough for us. It’s sad to see the whole city, and the crazy-serious fans so sad about it. Tough to be the losing city. Scott took the loss hard, and he NEVER does! Rhett went to bed at Halftime, and it was sad this morning to tell him the Falcons lost. He started tearing up a little bit, so I changed the subject quick. I’m a sports fan, yes, but I never get too emotionally invested in any of it. I feel like I would be sad and let down all the time if I did. It’s a defense mechanism 🙂 I was definitely sad about the loss. I had told Scott before the game, unless the Falcons are up by 40+ points, I will not feel secure against the Patriots. I just didn’t feel good about their lead, even when it was pretty big.
I seriously had flashbacks and similar feelings to election night. Very similar feelings and experience. The ramifications and seriousness aren’t quite the same, but the feelings were.
So ready for baseball to start! Not expecting the Braves to be good at all, but looking forward to the fun of it.
The Falcons are getting a new kick-ass dome stadium in 2017, which I hope to be able to see eventually. The Braves are supposed to open in their new stadium in mid-April, but it doesn’t look close to being done. Crazy to see how they pull it all together so fast.
