Still Reeling from Last Night (Superbowl Sunday)

| 6 Comments

I’m not even a Seahawks fan and I’m “stuck in a moment,” in the words of U2.  I went to bed thinking about that final second down play and woke up thinking about it – that decision to pass 1 yard and 20 seconds away from a near-certain win.  Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

I think we love games in part because they are just like life, but without the boring parts.  In particular:  some split-second decisions have profound consequences.  Please stop in at Bacon tomorrow for an interview with Nashville author Adam Ross, in which we discuss choices and consequences.  I’m hoping to be functional again by then.
