How cold was it? Lambeau frozen in time
GREEN BAY, Wis. - The NFL championship games started c-c-cold and ended with a frigid overtime thriller. Lawrence Tynes kicked a 47-yard field goal to give the Giants a 23-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers in the frosty NFC title game Sunday night after the New England Patriots topped the San Diego Chargers 21-12 in the AFC game. As soon as Tynes hit his kick, he bolted from the field. "I just wanted to get out of the cold," Tynes said.Well, it *was* fun to watch, anyway--at least until the last couple of minutes, when I spent more time hiding my eyes behind an afghan, unable to watch Tynes' field goal attempts. Two misses, but he nailed the one that really mattered. Dammit. As a slight consolation, we do have *this* little tidbit from Wisconsin's favorite QB, though:
"For me, I kept thinking how many opportunities are we going to let slip away," said Favre, who now will contemplate retiring or returning to the youngest team in the league. "It felt like everything had kind of fallen into place. I was disappointed that the last pass I threw was intercepted."He just can't retire on an interception. Can he? And, for all you Monday Morning QB's out there.....
