I’m starting to wonder if the Mayans were at least in the right ballpark on the date of the whole end of the world thing.
Last night my beloved and perennially hapless Seahawks destroyed the the San Francisco 49ers, currently the #1 team in the country, by a score of 42-13. And this comes on the heels of huge victories by margins of 58 points against the Cardinals and 37 points against (sorry, Mark) the Bills.
And they’ve managed to beat Tom Brady’s Patriots, Aaron Rodgers Packers, Adrian Peterson’s Vikes, and a Bear’s team that usually kicks them to the curb as if they were practice dummies. They’ve already clinched a playoff berth, and because of this they won’t have to wait until the last few games of the season to see if enough other mediocre teams tank their last games badly enough to let them squeak by for a one-game-and-out post-season appearance.
You should probably start praying to your respective God or deity. I’m pretty sure this is one of the seven signs foretold by John in Revelations.
A pretty damn great way to go out, though.
And, what the heck – it’s Christmas Eve! Consider this Football or general open thread…
