What You Think Doesn't Matter Today
Tonight my wife received an e-mail from a family member in Virginia congratulating us on the big Seahawks 41-36 win over the Saints in the Wild Card game. But it was not without a caveat. He didn't believe 7-9 teams should be in the playoffs. While we regularly forgive him his allegiance to certain New England professional sports teams, I am sure he shares this view with many other Americans, including some Saints players recovering from wounds suffered in Marshawn Lynch's 67-yard touchdown run that iced the game. You see, in the playoffs it doesn't matter what other folks believe, it just matters that the underdogs believe.
