Exciting Football Games

 

What  fun  it  has  been  to  watch  some  tremendous  football  games  in  recent  weeks.

My  favorite, of  course,  was  Oklahoma’s  stunning  upset  of  Alabama  in  the  Sugar  Bowl.   The

Sooners  were  16  1/2  to  17  1/2  point  underdogs,  and  I  predicted  the  Crimson  Tide  would  prevail,

35  to  10.  Oh,  ye  of  little  faith.

How  about  the  national  championship  duel?   Florida  State  and  Auburn  trading   three

touchdowns  in  the  final  4  1/2  minutes  and   the  Seminoles  scoring  the  winning  TD  with  only

13  seconds  remaining.  Great  drama.

Texas  A&M-Duke,  Missouri-Oklahoma  State,  Clemson-Ohio  State,  and  Michigan  State-Stanford

were  also  thrillers.

On  the  NFL’s  Wild  Card  weekend,  we  almost  saw  a  rarity.  If  Kansas  City  had  not  squandered

a  28-point  lead  at  Indianapolis,  all  four  ROAD  teams  would  have  been  victorious.  New  Orleans,

San  Diego  and  San  Francisco  achieved  victories  in  hostile  environments.

My  choices  for  the  Super  Bowl  are  Denver  and  San  Francisco.

    Why did I have the funny feeling you would be most pleased about the Oklahoma game?
