Game Two

7:06 Why do I have the feeling I'm going 0 for 2 this weekend? What a strange TD.

7:18 1st and 20 for the Colts. Touchdown knocked out of the air. Good defensive play.

7:26 End of first quarter. Pats: 7, Colts 3

7:37 Clutch 4th down conversion! And now a Corey Dillon (former Bengal) TD. Wow. I got it all wrong this time.

7:42 And away the Patriots go, like Paul Revere's night ride. TD Pats. 21 Pats 3 Colts

8:07 Colts have a critical 3rd down here.

8:15 So no end zone and they are how many qtrs without TDs? I'm thinking the Pats feel very comfortable, if you ask me.

Halftime

Unfortunately, it looks like game over to me and I will have to remember that I should always pick according to what I believe about who can win, not who I want to win.

8:32 Here we go. Can the Colts make some tracks?

8:41 So the Colts got that one. One down and one more to go to catch up. Pats: 21 Colts: 13

8:58 Colts TD and why are they going for two?

8:59 Oh that's why. :) Game is tied.

4th qtr

Current score: Pats: 28 Colts: 21

Manning on the move.

9:23 I have never seen so many fumble-type TDs in the history of football! Tied!

9:49 FG good - Tied at 31

9:54 FG Pats... glad they didn't score a TD. Gives Colts a chance...

The biggest come-back win in play-off history!

Final score: Colts 38 Patriots 34

fortune smiles on the Pats!

Ampersand said...

BTW, boogieman is my hero. He took me back to our store, in the snow, to get my extra AC adaptor so I could watch and comment on my laptop.

True love.

julieunplugged said...

Yes, well they're both fun to watch. I won't be sad if the Colts lose. I enjoy the Pats.

julieunplugged said...

Oh tell him he is my friend now too. That is so nice of him! I'm tyring to finish grading very poorly written essays. Ugh.

Ampersand said...

Definitely a game of inches so far...

Ampersand said...

Hey, did you see the commercial for the Buick Open? We can get our Tiger fix next weekend!

julieunplugged said...

I did just see that! Nice that it's scheduled between play-offs and Superbowl. I miss Tiger.

Ampersand said...

Wow, 4th and six, they have some big cahones. And they get it.

And they walk in for the TD.

goodness...

julieunplugged said...

Yeah, walking all over them, more like.

The Colts have to find their defense to beat the Pats. I tell you what, the play calling is amazing.

And I can't help but like Tom Brady.

Ampersand said...

Wow. I got it all wrong this time.

Lot's of football left, tho.

(Not that I want to show any mercy to the Colts!)

Ampersand said...

ohhhh, maybe not so much football left. that's gotta hurt the psyche.

julieunplugged said...

Don't you find it amazing that the Patriots were ignored for most of the season and that Belichick was criticized for his player trading.

If they win this whole thing, they are the best ever.

Oh no! Sack at the 5!

Ampersand said...

It is amazing. They are good even when they are bad. Top notch leadership and coaching.

I love how they don't have any big-egos. Redskins could sure take a page out of that book.

It is such a mental game and there are none tougher than the pats.

julieunplugged said...

It's just odd that the game seems so unbalanced so quickly.

Now see, I picked the Pats last week when most people didn't becaue I think Brady is the guy to count on. It looks like that is the truth again here.

Manning said Brady in the post-season is not the same animal as in the regular season. Wow.

Ampersand said...

ruh-roh third and 21...and a sack..could the colts get some life out of this?

julieunplugged said...

They sure hope so!

julieunplugged said...

But remember, they have, ahem, several TDs to make up.

Ampersand said...

colts have a pulse...

julieunplugged said...

There we go! Hanging on for a 1st.

julieunplugged said...

Phew. They have to score a TD. They have had a drought and now's the time to do it. Before the half.

Ampersand said...

that's a good call, I think.

julieunplugged said...

Yeah, of course you think that. :)

Do you kick the field goal or go for the TD?

Ampersand said...

Well, it's done now, but I agree with getting the three.

It was a good call, tho ;-)

Ampersand said...

we got ourselves a ballgame here...

that was a great series by the colts.

Ampersand said...

killer hit, i heard that from here!

colts gots some fight in em

Ampersand said...

I am getting a little worried...flu, cramps,...ruh-roh

julieunplugged said...

Aha!! They are better than I thought. Wah, wah.

Ampersand said...

facegaurding...never heard of it...wow, learn something new...

colts go for two?

julieunplugged said...

Did you see that huge guy catch that pass? Ballet, I tell you.

Ampersand said...

I'm not feeling so warm and fuzzy anymore...

julieunplugged said...

I bet you are now. Wow. That run back was ridiculous! Just when I think they've got momentum...

Ampersand said...

hmmm...80 yard return...feeling a little better.

julieunplugged said...

C-R-A-Z-Y!

Come on D!!

Ampersand said...

Remember, I have to live with boogieman if he goes two and oh.

julieunplugged said...

Ah did that poor guy drop da ball? Boo hoo. NOT!

Ampersand said...

how did he drop that, oh the agony.

Ampersand said...

Touchdown, baby!!!

julieunplugged said...

Was he out of bounds when he leaped? Of course he was.

julieunplugged said...

Not so fast, sweet-heart.

Ampersand said...

dreaded red flag....i don't see how you can tell if he was out of bounds before the catch ?!?!

Ampersand said...

nervewracking!!!

julieunplugged said...

I don't really get why pushing out of bounds is not okay. Do you know why?

julieunplugged said...

Here it comes: You happy girl.

Ampersand said...

a-very-big-exahale-here...

Ampersand said...

if he is pushed out of bounds in the process of jumping for a catch and he would have landed in bounds then it is ruled a catch...is that what you mean?

why? because the football rule gods have deemed it that way. O guess it would be awfully easy to defend on the sidelines and endzone if not for that rule.

julieunplugged said...

Okay, Back to breathing. Manning has to get the job done. That's how it works.

Ampersand said...

sorry about the injury, but nice rest for the Pat D.

julieunplugged said...

I hate injuries.

Ampersand said...

hmmm, you are a much kinder, gentler football fan than I...

julieunplugged said...

I noticed you crazy thing. I guess it's the left over from Carson's knee injury. We had to hear about every incremental step of recovery he made. Play-off injuries are especially painful, doncha think?

Ampersand said...

Peyton is cooperating with you Julie...keep coachin him up...

julieunplugged said...

Yes, well... he knows I can't go 0 and 2, right?

The Pat D looks exhausted.

julieunplugged said...

TD!! Woo-hoo! right back atcha, they say.

Ampersand said...

Well, I do hate if a player misses the superbowl to an injury.

another crazy-fumble-touchdown...man this game has it all...

julieunplugged said...

Kim, we're up to like 55 crazy comments! I love having you over for the game. Ha! Ha! (Those were chest bumps)

Do you love the diet pepsi commercial? I love it.

Ampersand said...

yes, but if the Pats lose, I'm 0-2 :-(.

And I will not be able to live with the Peyton superbowl hype.

I will have to go live in a cave.

Thank God for NASCAR and the Daytona 500. I still have that to look forward to.

Ampersand said...

This is a blast, Julie...

We will have to watch a game together IRL someday!

julieunplugged said...

Next time we'll have to set up an IM chat. Makes more sense, don't you think? Love this.

Ampersand said...

yes, how crazy will these comments seem to others, after the fact, LOL.

Ampersand said...

It's not possible that you are still grading essays, is it?

julieunplugged said...

Well, I think I'm going to take it down when it's over. A bit silly. But so much fun! I'm grading all at the same time.

julieunplugged said...

I really am. They are not super long and the comments are starting to repeat themselves. I do one every couple minutes. :)

Ampersand said...

oh, if you are going to take it down then I can start using my full repertoire of swear words ;)

julieunplugged said...

Ha! Guess what essay I just opened? One written by a student about Paul Brown and the Bengals! :) How funny is that?

julieunplugged said...

So did you pike your voo-doo peyton doll in the thumb? He's injured. :(

Ampersand said...

>_< maaaaybe

Ampersand said...

how could he drop that?

julieunplugged said...

That was ugly! I'm so happy.

julieunplugged said...

No flag. I honestly can't figure out when it's pass interference.

Ampersand said...

just a little contact there, crap!

Ampersand said...

ok, now we can see what is up with peyton's thumb..*stick, stick, stick*

julieunplugged said...

You're back ahead. but I don't think that was what they wanted. Can Manning throw? Would it be the deepest irony if he has to sit out now?

julieunplugged said...

I say: Play through it Peyton!

(that has a nice ring to it)

Ampersand said...

uh-oh

must stop them from scoring...

Ampersand said...

whew, stopped the TD.

julieunplugged said...

Not again! Why run it on 3rd and five? But come on! They need a TD. Well, Vinateri better be as good as he's supposed to be...

Ya know, that's a couple of shaky ones.

Ampersand said...

that was a near Romo

Ampersand said...

oh good lord, that was great...

julieunplugged said...

Good grief. Can they stop a single receiver?

This makes NE's drives too easy.

Ampersand said...

Hey, I'm sorry I messed up your live blogging posts with all these silly comments...but, thanks for letting me have so much fun!

julieunplugged said...

In FG position AGAIN! If the Colts lose it will be because they are always playing catch up and never leading.

julieunplugged said...

You haven't messed up anything! It's been a blast.

julieunplugged said...

I'm liking 3rd and 10

Ampersand said...

heavy sigh of relief

Ampersand said...

Pats need a turnover!!!

Ampersand said...

very large exhale, very large

julieunplugged said...

RATS!!!

Taht sucks.

julieunplugged said...

Another 40 yard start for the Pats. That could be the game right there.

Ampersand said...

boogieman is a bit worried

julieunplugged said...

8-0 when games are decided by 7 pts or less - pats. Wow.

Ampersand said...

now that's not helpful, damn.

Ampersand said...

great defense

i'm not sure i can make it through an overtime!

julieunplugged said...

Good grief! Can you believe this breath holding game?

Ampersand said...

oh my, this could be it...they could score...#$$%^^

julieunplugged said...

My heart just stopped!

julieunplugged said...

half the distance to the goal!!!

julieunplugged said...

Here it comes. Peyton may have it in him yet.

Ampersand said...

boogieman is a little excited right now...i mean in a football way...

julieunplugged said...

They better score. i can't do an OT. I have so much grading to do but it has stopped. I can't breathe, move or think. And this isn't even my team! What a game.

julieunplugged said...

LOL! we're up to 100 comments.

Ampersand said...

i'm prepared to turn off all sports talk radio until after the superbowl!!

julieunplugged said...

3rd and 2. 1:02

What a game.

julieunplugged said...

I can understand that. :)

julieunplugged said...

When the Bengals lost, I was the same way for a week.

julieunplugged said...

Even better!!!!!! They did it!

Ampersand said...

oh, shit...

julieunplugged said...

Hey those Pats could easily get the game typing FG with 60 secs.

julieunplugged said...

Oh wait! We're up by 4!

Ampersand said...

LOL

Ampersand said...

i needed that laugh!

julieunplugged said...

Set your sights on NaSCAR dear. :)

Ampersand said...

sigh, Tiger and NASCAr, yes, this too shall pass.

julieunplugged said...

Aha. One down.... down.

julieunplugged said...

Oh I can't believe this.... danger, danger.

julieunplugged said...

The perfect ending!!!!!

Ampersand said...

*extends hand* good game!

julieunplugged said...

Hi five top you too.

You made the whole thing the most fun ever!

Have a great night.

Ampersand said...

have fun with those papers! i'm off to give boogieman a good slug in the arm ;).

Thanks for doing this...most fun I've had lately!

Ampersand said...

i can only imagine what this did for your pageviews stats on sitemeter...

julieunplugged said...

I'll certainly do you the honors on the next game. :)

Dave said...

Wow that was so exhilarating! My heart was pounding, my pulse is just now returning to normal.

What a great, unforgettable game. This was a great day of football - none of the teams have anything to hang their heads about. The NFL put on quite a showcase today.

SusansPlace said...

I did a doubletake when I saw "121" comments. Man, you and Kim were burning up cyberspace today. Looks like y'all had fun. ;-)

Boogieman said...

Ahem...

"Pats himself on the back for going 2-0 this football weekend..."

Ampersand said...

"Pats himself on the back for going 2-0 this football weekend..."

Aww, Boogieman, please don't say "pats."
