[Insert Missed Field Goal Cliché Here]

Of course I watched the Steelers/Jets game. Yes I was feeling sick in the stomach. And the terrible towels did make many a twirl in my family room. I know that I don't actually play for the team, but my body doesn't seem to get that particular message. I do feel somewhat responsible for the interception that occurred between Jets' field goal misses, though, as I called it happening about 2 minutes before it did.

A new week will bring a new game, and luckily the Steelers will be playing in it. If Doug Brien made one of those field goals, the headlines this morning would be quite different. Instead, the NY media had to go through every missed field goal cliché possible. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette came up with one telling the Steelers side of things.

"Whew!"

I couldn't have said it better.

Just as in golf, only the final score shows up on the card and every game is a new game.

Have you any predictions for this weekend? This deep into the playoffs, there are no underdogs. The only thing that would surprise me is a blowout for either side.

I've been taking a couple of tums before bed every night to start settling my stomache in advance. Game day remedies may not suffice if this weekend is anything like the last one.

I will be sporting my Steeler's gear starting today. Hannah will wear her Steeler cheerleader outfit and "little steeler fan" bib on Sunday, hopefully not for the last time.
