It’s a day of mourning. And no, I’m not talking about the presidency or the protests. I’ve grown weary of those topics.
No, I’m talking about something much lighter.
I’m talking about the National Football League.
And despite Meryl Streep’s derogatory comments about the NFL, some of us still enjoy the sport. But with that said, rather than watching the Dallas Cowboys playing in the NFC Championship game this weekend, instead I’ll be working in the garage.
This was almost a great season for Cowboys’ fans. For the first time in years, there was enthusiasm and optimism. Even more so than two years ago when the team finished with 12 wins for only the second time since winning the Super Bowl in 1995. This year was different. It was unexpected with new players rising up to take the reigns.
And this year was just fun to watch.
But it ended last week.
And while you can say, “there’s always next year,” when it comes to the NFL, you never know what will happen in any given year.
Injuries, salary caps, free agency, and luck all impact a team’s performance. Check out how many games are decided in the final two minutes of the game.
But that’s why we enjoy the game – not knowing what will happen week-to-week.
And while it is unfortunate for me that the Cowboys are no longer in contention, I do have a confession. I will be in my garage working, but there’s a television in there. So I will also be watching the game (or at least have it running in the background).
Have a great Sunday!
