This is not going to be a sports intensive post. Still, we have to acknowledge that this was one of the big weekends in sports here in the US. Wild card Weekend is when 8 of the 12 playoff contenders meet in a win-or-go-home football game while the four teams who had the best regular season records get to sit in their collective living rooms and watch as next week’s opponents were determined. If you’re not a football fan, you’re hoping I don’t give you a recap. If you are a football fan, you don’t need the recap. Let me just say this:
Paying attention to football, even when your team isn’t playing, precludes serious thinking about things.
The good news is that JusJoJan is running, so all I had to do is get up early and finish this. It turns out, it’s an easy finish, thanks to the prompt from Jill at J-Dubs Grin and Bear It. :
“Your prompt for JusJoJan January 6th, 2020, is ‘possibility.’ Use the word ‘possibility’ any way you’d like. Have fun!”
In the four games that were played on Saturday and Sunday, the underdogs won three of them. Two teams ranked 6th beat their 3rd ranked opponents and one 5th ranked team beat its 4th ranked opponent. The only game where the “better” team won, went into overtime. All the underdogs played away games in their opponent’s home stadiums.
“I guess they came to town aware of the possibilities!”
Otherwise, it was wet and cold here. A great weekend for watching others play, but not so good for playing.
