Thats what I told my Hubby yesterday afternoon after watching the Seattle Seahawks come soooooo close to winning, only to ultimately lose the game and chance at the Superbowl. That hey, they had an amazing year...and finally gave Hawks fans something to be proud of.
He said....No. It doesn't work like that in sports.
I said that is dumb! :)
I like to find the good in it all. Even a loss....hey they played an amazing second half and came back and made a great game of it.
And really, altho heartbreaking that they lost, it really has been fun this season to have the Hawk fans back to happy and good again. Its been fun to check in on FB the day after the game and see all the people so excited and on board. Its fun. ITs suppose to be fun...for us. More serious for the players...but fun for us fans.
And I am glad to see that the Hawks coach had the same idea and was speaking out in support of his team and the year they had.
See? I am not the only one who looks for the good in sports...
HEre is what Pete had to say:
- Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll hailed his team's never-say-die attitude after they fell just short of an extraordinary playoff comeback against the Atlanta Falconson Sunday.
"I can't imagine that anyone expected that we had a chance to get back in that game except for our guys in the locker room and they felt it the whole time," said Carroll, whose red-hot Seattle team carried a six-game winning streak into Atlanta.
"I don't know why they think that way but they do - and we got back in it and got ahead in great fashion."
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson ended his unexpectedly excellent rookie season by throwing two touchdown passes and running in for another during a 385-yard passing performance but it was not enough to beat the top-seeded Falcons.
"There are a million things you can ask about it but all in all it was an extraordinary game an exquisite comeback," Carroll said after his team's 30-28 loss.
"The quarterback was incredible and everyone who made all those plays as we came back. We put ourselves in a position to be back for another game next week but we couldn't finish it with the couple of plays they made."
