What cheers me up is that by the beginning of next month, the Seahawks will be 0-2 in the Superbowl. This happens, their fanbase/bandwagon falls apart (it's fragile), cause unlike the 49ers, Seattle goes home with nothing to fall back on. No memories to make it better, no past trophies in the case, no Huey Lewis & the News.
49ers have now had 15 Championship appearances (tied with the Steelers), 6 Halas trophies, 5 Lombardi trophies, and we're also tied with the Steelers for most home playoff wins in the Superbowl era.
3 straight NFC Championship appearances, I don't even know what to be sad about anymore.
That's a pretty good way to look at it...sure you can dwell on the fact the Niners have ended the past 3 seasons in absolute gut-wrenching fashion, but then again, you could be a Browns or [insert long-suffering bad team] fan. And I REALLY do hope Seattle loses.
I was still feeling a little sorry for myself Monday night, and since I'm now on my kick of no football-related media AT ALL, after helped kids with homework, everyone to bed, etc., instead of usual sitting down to watch NFLN or ESPN, just started flipping around and came across "Independent Lens" on PBS, a show where they feature films/docs from small/indy filmmakers. Anyway, it was "Blood Brother", docu about this 20-something American "kid" who ends up living in India with and caring for HIV-infected orphans...from the cinematography to the story itself, it was amazing. Not to wax too philosophical about it, and I realize there's hurt and suffering everywhere, but to see what this dude, and especially those kids have to endure, it really made me feel pretty stupid still pouting about my football team losing. That's not to say people shouldn't feel some pain when their teams lose, but just one of those reminders for me to keep some perspective.
