WHEW! More #content hitting you soon, but this was just an emotional log we kept to track this very volatile ballgame.
Opening kickoff returned for TD
JOYOUS. A full-throated and deep laugh
The first time Donovan made a great tackle and DIDN’T get ejected for targeting.
Hearty guffaw. I knew this was our day at this point. NOTHING ELSE COULD EVER GO WRONG IN THIS GAME, I thought happily
Sternberger knocking the Arkansas DB’s helmet off and talking shit.
Yeah, that was funny. Snort and chortle.
Mond’s first interception
A guttural and deflated groan
Mond’s second interception
Kick in the gut and sit down immediately for a very audible WHOOSH
Missed FG/entire last few seconds of first half
A series of sputtering rage-utterances, laced with mild obscenities.
Small’s second missed FG off the upright
Silent, but both hands immediately went to the forehead with the timeless posture of collapsed hopes. The clangs echoed in my mind over and over...
Trayveon 4th quarter TD
Massive wave of relief: a barked “yes” followed by contented sigh.
Arkansas long TD pass in the 4th
FUCK, shouted emotionally at the window curtains next to me, glancing back at them seconds later with a trace of regret...
