ManCat Monday

Never try to out stubborn a cat. - Robert A. Heinlein.I've got the end of my bungee toy, mum is on the other end. Sooner or later she will give up and just let me play with it on my own.

Packer game was EXCITING. I was the second coldest game in Packer history, after the Ice Bowl of 1967. It went into overtime tied at 20 at the Ginormous team missed a field goal as time expired. But then in OT, old Brett threw an interception the the Ginormous team finally got a field goal to win 23-20.

Mum, I and my furiends watched from the warmth of our couch. You can see all of us below. If mums jumping, shouting, cheering, cursing and used of many bad words and loud voice scared anyone, I pologize. She certainly scared me at times, she isn't normally that loud and she kept coming to me to pologize for being loud and scaring me and the others.

I was joined by my lovely Princess Mia Bella, Beau Beau and Angie, Opus and Roscoe, Parker, Momo and Sassy.


Momo and Sassy led the cheers for the team and we cheered. But I think that Opus has his eyes covered there. Must have been at one of the tight spots in the game. I look like I was sleeping, but I think I couldn't watch at times too! It didn't end up the way we Packer Backers wanted but we did have a good run this season. All I can say now is GO PATS! Now let's have a few niptini's to drown our sorrows!

Lots of purrs to Caesar's family. He went quietly to The Rainbow Bridge Saturday night. May he live on in your hearts.

We're sorry your Packers didn't win. We wrote a cheer for Momo and put it on her post, but guess it didn't help. Did you see it? We thought it was pretty good. So the Packers should have won.

Oh I am sorry that your Packers didn't win.

MoMo said...

Oh gee, didn't win, darn! At least your Packers couch was comfy and your room warm. Don't fancy getting a frozen butt out there at all.

I am sure Packers will be better next time :)

I am also miss Caesar so so deeply.

MoMo said...

So what's next, are we barracking for the Pats? That's the only kitty team left!

Parker said...

What a game! It was a bummer that the Packs lost. I had a ball at your place!
We are very sad about Caesar too!

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

We wanted your team to win Derby & Mum. Those people at the stadium sure looked cold.

Monkee said...

Sorry to hear you're a Packers fan Derby. We're all Giants fans over here (though Mom really likes the Pats too). She was very happy the Giants won even though she thought there was no chance in hell that they would win.

The Crew said...

Hi Derby, sorry we haven't been around for a while. It looks like you had a nice gathering for the game. Too bad all our cheering didn't help them win!

PB & J said...

We're sorry that your Packers didn't win, but it wasn't for your lack of cheering!!! It looks like you al lhad fun anyway.

Jan said...

How could they lose if your mom was yelling louder than Momo the Cheerleader? We even wrote a cheer for them cause we knew they were going to win. You said so. Weren't those guys LISTENING?

Jan said...

Oops. We got that backwards. Momo was yelling louder than your mom and you said your mom was yelling loud!

Poor Momo. She must be even more disappointed than you are. We'll have to go see if she can still talk.

It looks like you guys had a great time watching the game!

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Did your mom get you good snacks during the game? Looks like you all had a ball! My mom is weird and doesn't like football...although she does shout loud and cuss sometimes about other things so I think she'd make a good fan.

Tybalt said...

It sounds like it was an exciting game! I'm sorry it didn't end the way you wanted it to, but it looks like you had a great time anyway!

Boy said...

Yes, even though Caesar has gone over to the Wainbpw Bwidge, he'll never weave us.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Wow, you had quite a big bunch of cats over to watch the game! Looks like a great time was had by all :-D

jenianddean said...

Sorry your Packers lost, but like you said, it was a good game and a good season. Can't pull for the Patriots, though, since I'm a Colts fan. (And not a fan of anyone being undefeated...)
