I watched alot of the second half of the UT-Texas Tech game Saturday. It was one of those times where you have to slow down and watch the car wreck. When UT came back and took the lead late in the game, I began to recover from my own shock, and not be worried about all of the Longhorn fans, family, and friends. However, as you probably know, Tech went down and scored a last second TD to beat the then-#1 Longhorns.
Geez, I was really worried about Longhorn fans then, especially my brother-in-law. That was the type of shock that causes fans to hop of bandwagons for the season, if not forever, and some to swear of sports altogether. Thank God there weren't any reports of students jumping off the Congress bridge and people seem to be dealing with it. The therapists in town will probably see a financial bump. At least somebody is these days.
Speaking of shock, the Bucs about did me in Sunday. They had no business winning a game they played so poorly in. All I could say for the majority of the game was WTF is going on. KC isn't that good and they were whuppin' the Bucs in all phases of the game. Luckily, they were able to turn it around and get some drives late for scores, including a late 2 point conversion pass to Alex Smith. His knee really seemed to get twisted there, so hopefully he'll be ok. That had to be one of the weirdest Buc games I can remember. It was definitely a big win to keep close to Carolina, and one we can definitely say was stolen.
Congrads to Coach Gruden for becoming the Bucs all-time winning coach with his 57th victory. Here's to hoping #58 doesn't take very long or be a rough as this past weekend one was.
