Ha, know how you feel. I called in sick to watch the Hawks play in the AFC Championship only to watch them get embarrassed by the Raiders. I felt for years afterwards that I had jinxed them. I also used to pretty much hold my breath during the Holmgren years, particularly in the playoff run to the Superbowl. As a Hawks fan you get used to waiting for the other shoe to fall. My Dad (who's WAY more pessimistic than I am) just said something like that before the last game.
But naaaah. We aren't that team anymore, you can see that. I told my Dad to have faith, and felt confidence while saying it. A new feeling, really! Even though I KNOW the Rams are a damned good team, what's going on right now is special, and something that can be sustained. I'm not going to let my fandom be hesitant anymore. We've already exceeded my hopes for what I thought we could achieve a year ago and all the rest is gravy here on out.
