$*%&...Coach Fuller was there?...wish I had saw him so I could have said hi.
I was actually drinking this game (first time in 3 years) since it was my last game, so I don't think my eyesight was as good as usual. At least the beer took a little sting out of the loss, if I was sober I would've been throwing chairs onto the field after the game or something...oh wait, that's been done before...would've had to come with something new instead.
Score was 3-0 (Beef got a field goal on their first possession) all the way until less than a minute left in the first half. Let me repeat that...in this indoor football game...the score was 3-0 with less than a minute to play in the first half...not first quarter, first half. Amazing. With less than a minute left to play the Beef were in the Storm's red zone, but stalled after some bad plays on their part (but good D on the Storms part). The Beef ended up kicking a field goal to go up 6-0. With still less than a minute left, the Storm drove down the field before half ended and got a TD to lead at half 7-6. I though both defenses played great in the first half, obviously if there was only 3 points scored for all but a minute left in the half. I thought the Beef missed many opportunities to take control of the game in the first half...credit to the Storm. The crowd in the arena was the smallest I've ever seen for a Storm home game, might've been because of the weather (heavy storms and streets flooding, etc). Since the house wasn't packed, I felt the Beef let slip an opportunity there, since there won't be that many times in the playoffs you'll go to Sioux Falls and not have a packed house and have to fight extreme crowd noise. So many things the Beef had an opportunity to do, but didn't.
When the second half came, it was pretty much all Storm the rest of the way. The Beef kept it close for awhile, but in the end they just fell apart. The Storm defense kept playing great and finally the Storm offense was able to generate plays and the Beef defense was either spent or just not ready for it. Credit to the Storm for playing so great...again.
I'd like to say that I wish the Storm continued success in the playoffs, but I really don't. They already have 4 titles, are the best team in indoor football history, etc, etc, that I feel they've had enough and I want some other team than the Storm to win it all. So I will have to root for whoever is playing the Storm from here on out, unless it's Rochester.
I saw Stormtidalwave when he came over to the Beef corner (where all visiting fans get shoved in to...the far corner), then said hi again at halftime (he sits in the front row next to section O). Bouncer was entrenched in his seats, but I got to wave at him. Mr. Clean (that's what Hawkeye, T-Bone, and I like to refer to him as) was ever vigilant telling me each time I ventured to Section O (2 times), to basically get the f uck out of there...lol. I just ignored him. He said something as I was leaving the second time that I didn't catch (and could care less) and I just said have a great game each time he went to say something. He definitely has a stick up his @ss, but it doesn't bother me any...makes me laugh. Bouncer was able to come by the Beef corner and I got to say hi to him then, thanks for coming over btw.
After the game there was some hot girl that evidently worked for the Storm, dressed in a black shirt and black pants who was organizing the post game signings or something, who knows what she was doing (was also playing catch), but she sure looked hot whoever she was, with her black hair and ....everything else.
Got to talk with Stormtidalwave after the game, he confirmed that the Steelers s uck basically, which I already knew. Jeff Sprowls indicated that he'll be back with the Beef next year, as did Sankey, so I hope that's the case.
Probably forgetting a ton of stuff, but that's all I can recall right now.
Great win Storm. Get them next year Beef.
