Um, guys, WE WON THE GREY CUP!!!
Here is our 41 year old (!!!) quarterback winning game MVP (he was league MVP last year)
And let’s just ignore the silly mounties in the background who are apparently not allowed to crack a smile…so cheesy Canadian! lol
It was THE MOST INSANE GAME EVER. We went in as the COMPLETE underdogs against the Calgary Stampeders who were practically undefeated this season. By halftime we were up 27-7. But then, in true Redblack fashion, we completely threw it away in the third quarter and by the end of the fourth quarter, Calgary had tied it up 33-33 and we were GOING INTO OVERTIME!!!
I could barely breathe I was so nervous!! How did a 3 year old expansion team make it to their second Grey Cup in a row and THEN IN OT against the, by far, strongest team in the league??
And then we did the impossible. We won 39-33 in OT.
Ok, so that was the end of my week but I absolutely needed to talk about it first!!
Let’s see…last week…
I got my winter tires put on my car…using the BEST SERVICE EVER – a mobile tire guy who COMES TO MY HOUSE, changes my tires in about 15 minutes and charges $30.
I’ve started dabbling in some crossfit…in order to be allowed to actually take the classes at the gym near my house, you have to go through 6 individual sessions with the owner…I don’t have any pics because I’m literally just getting my ass kicked for an hour. Last week I had a 1 hour session on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’m hurting.
On Tuesday & Thursday I ran with my team…easy 6 miles each day…with some planking in the middle lol
Thursday night, The Giant was in town and we made Ham & Cheese Sliders
And then we relaxed and watched GOT…
Saturday morning was field hockey…we didn’t have any subs…I could barely breathe by the end.
I tried out this new recipe Saturday night…Taco Past Salad
Sunday morning was a 10 mile run in “warm” winter temps…longest run I have done in FOREVER…it kinda killed me. lol
Xmas lights went up
And then Banana Chocolate Chip (with peanut butter) muffins…
While I was literally on the edge of my seat for the entire game, this is how excited Abby was…literally, these are the positions she was in for the almost 4 hour game.
