PANTHERS WIN!! Playoffs, Baby!! Bestbirthday handsdown!

by Solstice22 on December 22, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I walked out of the house to meet a friend just when the Panthers made a touchdown with 23 seconds left to play!! 23 seconds!! They aren't called the Cardiac Cats for nuthing! It was 4th Quarter and the Saints were ahead. The 2 minute warning was called.

I thought, ok, this is why my not being competitive is good. I can handle a loss. It was a good game, my beloved Panthers played well. Nothing to be ashamed of! Then, a Panthers timeout was called and I thought, "aha, they are going to try something. Those Cardiac Cats!"

I actually screamed! Loud! A happy yell or else my neighbors would have come running because the quiet lady never makes a peep!!

This has been the best birthday! Seeing the Nutcracker! The nice Sixer messages and good wishes and sixer parties for me! And a win in the last 23 seconds, Ohmygosh!!

Thank you everyone for sharing my joy with me today! You all are the best!!! :D
