Now I Know How Soccer Fans Feel

Rams vs 49ers

Something happened in the NFL Sunday that hasn’t happened since 2008.  The St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers played to a 24-24 tie.

The last time that happened was when the Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals played to a 13-13 tie.

Both the Rams and the 49ers had a chance to win it in overtime, but their field goal kickers each missed.

But what about us fans?  Those of us who gave you a good part of our Sunday afternoon.

I felt like I had gone to a fancy restaurant and ordered something I really like – only to have the waiter come out with a small, minuscule portion – “Hey, where’s the rest?”

That’s how I felt after watching the game end in a tie.  I wanted – scratch that – needed someone to win.  Things don’t end in a tie, especially football games.  Someone always has to win.

I’ve always wondered how soccer fans could follow a sport where ties are common place.  I don’t think I could handle it.  I need my weekly dose of winners and losers.

I can only image how fans at the game must have felt.  You ride this incredible roller coaster of adrenaline for four quarters – only to leave the stadium not knowing who won.

So here I sit, Monday morning, starring at my computer…and I‘m still hungry dang it!
