THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2017 Page 7 By Kevin Skavhaug What if... There are a few things I've missed out on in my life- time. The initial public of- fering of Microsoft, the last four deer gun openers, a 1969 GTO Judge and most recently, the amazing come- back that took place during Sunday's Super Bowl. Yeah, I'll admit it, I checked out early in the second half. But I'm probably not the only one. The score had just turned 28-3. Atlanta's looking good and New England looks beat- en. To the hot tub for us and deep inside I was glad that the Patriots were finally go- ing to lose badly. But in the time it took to wrinkle our fingers and toes up real good, something pret- ty amazing must have hap- pened in .Houston. Mary got out first and in a couple sec- onds, opens the door and tells me I better get out here because the game's about to go into overtime! What? No possible way! Way. For those of you that watched it, it must have been great. For the Patriots, it must have been better than great. For the Falcons, a lot of what ifs. Yes, there have been some good Super Bowls and over the years there's been some bad ones. This one will go down as probably the greatest. I hope I've learned my lesson. Never give up on a game in which Tom Brady has something to do with it. In a few days I'll look on- line to see the highlights. Maybe I'll check out a Mecum auction docket to see if there's a bright orange Judge for sale somewhere (just to see it mind you). I guess it's always sort of fun to wonder what-if. Unless you're an Atlanta Falcon fan this week.
