Sweet Melissa!

Headline in The USA Today online reads: Panthers clinch NFC bye on final-second FG vs. Saints

To my friends on the island, Wreggie is happy.

His home National Football League team the Carolina Panthers defeated the New Orleans Saints today by kicking a field goal in the last 6 seconds to win.

They are now the second seed (second best team in the NFC (National football Conference not to be confused with the AFC, American Football Conference)) and Carolina will have next Sunday off (a bye).

Carolina gets to play at home again the 10th or 11th of January and Wreggie gets to tailgate again one more time.  

That was a lot said in that headline, huh?

That's exciting news! I'm sure you're aware that my home team did well today too with a last second field goal: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/29/sports/football/29giants.html

I had to hear the big news from my son. I don't watch football.
