Greenbay 28 Seahawks 23

The Seahawks’ ability to turn a 21-3 halftime deficit into a one-score game late in the fourth quarter was a testament to the grit and resolve this team showed all season. Also, as Sunday’s game showed, having a really good quarterback helps.

The Seahawks fell to the Packers 28-23 in the divisional round playoff game at Lambeau Field, but as disappointing as the result was, Wilson’s play served as a good reminder that as long as he’s on the team—and he just signed a contract extension in April—the Seahawks will be in almost every game they play.

“I thought Russell was phenomenal tonight,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “He did everything he could have done, and I just thought his courage and his toughness showed up. His resolve to find ways was all over the field, running and passing, the throws that he made, the runs that he made, the escapes that he pulled off. And just always going to win is what he was doing. It was awesome. It was awesome to watch him be a part of this. I’m really proud of him and the rest of the guys that fought for this.”
After completing 6 of 13 attempts for 105 yards in a first half in which the Seahawks were held to a single field goal, Wilson and Seattle’s offense caught fire in the second half. After throwing an incomplete pass to open the third quarter, Wilson completed 15 of his final 17 passes—and one of those incompletions was dropped—for 172 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing for 48 yards on five second-half carries. With 64 rushing yards in the game, Wilson led the Seahawks in rushing for the second straight playoff game.

“I can’t say enough about him, man,” left tackle Duane Brown said. “He’s the best. These aren’t the kind of games you want to be in out here, where you get down a few touchdowns, a few scores. In this environment against that kind of defense, you become one-dimensional, that’s not the kind of game you want to be in. But with him, you always feel like you’ve got a chance. He’s a phenomenal talent, and I’m just glad to be on the same team with him.”

With the Seahawks trailing by 18 points at halftime, Wilson’s message to the team was, “We’re going to win this game.” he said. “Unfortunately, we didn’t. The belief was that we were going to find a way. That’s the thing we have been able to do all year.”
That belief Wilson has in himself and the team being able to overcome just about anything is one of his best traits, and one that nearly led to a memorable playoff comeback. It’s why no one was surprised when Wilson led touchdown drives of 69, 84 and 79 yards to turn what could have become a blowout into a one-score game in the fourth quarter.

“It’s because the mentality that he has,” Carroll said. “He always believes—no, he always knows he’s going to win. He knows that. And so he can’t think anything else, and he can’t function in any other way, and that’s not just like, oh, sometimes when he has a good feeling or a good day. That ain’t how it is. It’s forever. It’s been like this since the moment he walked in here. I didn’t teach him nothing, I didn’t coach him on any of that. I’d love to show you—I can’t take credit for any of that. This is him, and it goes back to his mom and dad and the way they raised him. The only way he can think is he’s going to get it done. He’s just going to make it happen. And he’s proven it so many times. He did it again.”

Spurs 0 Liverool 1

Liverpool extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to 16 points with victory at Spurs on Saturday – and Jurgen Klopp’s side still have a game in hand.

The result sends Liverpool into the record books, also. It’s the best start to top-flight season in Europe’s top five leagues: 21 games, 20 wins and a draw. And while 1-0 scoreline at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was hardly a reflection of Liverpool’s superiority, with the league leader’s content to hold Spurs at arm’s length for most of the match.

That’s not to say Spurs didn’t have their chances, though. Heung-min Son was guilty of missing a golden opportunity to level the match in the 75th minute, but blazed over the bar after Georginio Wijnaldum was caught in possession. In truth, the majority of Spurs’ sparse openings game from odd lapses in concentration from Liverpool, but when it mattered, their class shone through. And it came with the winner on 37 minutes.

Jordan Henderson won the ball and headed it through to Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian turned Davinson Sanchez in the penalty area and found Roberto Firmino.

The Brazilian, on the left side of the box and up against 20-year-old Japhet Tanganga – who impressed on what was his Premier League debut – epitomised Liverpool’s class this season. Fimrinho allowed the ball across his body with a twist akin to Neo dodging bullets in the Matrix, before rattling the ball past Paulo Gazzaniga. Just like that, the Premier League leaders, led.

Spurs improved in the second half – notably after Christian Eriksen made way. He was jeered by the home fans as he left, with presumably both parties hoping that will be his final outing for Spurs. The Dane looked disinterested throughout. Giovani Lo Celso, his replacement, provided more threat in 20 minutes he was on than Eriksen achieved in the 70 before, but Spurs couldn’t find a goal their fans wanted. Lo Celso went close at the end, but Liverpool ran out deserved winners.

Dan Kilpatrick’s final thoughts: “Spurs slip to another narrow defeat to Liverpool but they were unlucky not to get at least a point and there’s plenty to take from the performance, particularly after half-time. For Mourinho, it’s a vindication of his claim that Spurs would improve once he had a free week on the training ground.”

Twilight

Just on the border of your waking mind,
There lies another time
Where darkness and light are one,
And as you tread the halls of sanity
You feel so glad to be unable to go beyond
I have a message from another time.

The visions dancing in my mind
The early dawn, the shades of time
Twilight crawling through my windowpane
Am I awake or do I dream?
The strangest pictures I have seen
Night is day and twilight’s gone away

With your head held high and your scarlet lies
You came down to me from the open skies
It’s either real or it’s a dream
There’s nothing that is in between…

Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, I gave you time to steal my mind
Away from me.

Across the night I saw your face
You disappeared without a trace
You brought me here, but can you take me back?
Inside the image of your light
That now is day and once was night
You lead me here and then you go away.

You brought me here, but can you take me back again?

With your head held high and your scarlet lies
You came down to me from the open skies

Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, Twilight, Twilight, Twilight.

Livin’ la Vida Loca

Draco Rosa Desmond Child

La reina de la noche
La diosa del vudú
Yo no podré salvarme
Podrás salvarte tú?
La tela de la araña
La uña del dragón
Te lleva a los infiernos
Ella es tu adicción
Te besa y te desnuda con su baile demencial
Tú cierras los ojitos y te dejas arrastrar
Tú te dejas arrastrar
Ella que será
She’s livin’ la vida loca
Y te dolerá
Sí, de verdad te toca
Ella es tu final
Vive la vida loca
Ella te dirá
Vive la vida loca
She’s livin’ la vida loca
Se fue a New York City
A la torre de un hotel
Te ha robado la cartera
Se ha llevado hasta tu piel
Por eso no bebía
De tu copa de licor
Por eso te besaba
Con narcótico sabor
Es el beso de calor
Ella que será
She’s livin’ la vida loca
Y te dolerá
Sí, de verdad te toca
Ella es tu final
Vive la vida loca
Ella te dirá
Vive la vida loca
She’s livin’ la vida loca
Te besa y te desnuda con su baile demencial
Tú cierras los ojitos y te dejas arrastrar
Tú te dejas arrastrar
Ella que será
She’s livin’ la vida loca
Y te dolerá
Sí, de verdad te toca
Ella es tu final
Vive la vida loca
Ella te dirá
Vive la vida loca
She’s livin’ la vida loca

Winter usually brings the rain
The season of good will passed quickly
Now its raining only sorrow

Translated to Japanese

冬は通常雨が降る
善の季節はすぐに過ぎ去る
今雨が降るだけの悲しみ

It usually rains in winter
The good season will soon pass away
The sadness just rains now
