    I don't know how to do a poll, so I'll do it this way - I'd like to know when you guys were able to relax during (or after!) the game - and if you have any specific reasoning, I'd like to hear that too:

    1.) After the Nelson TD?

    2.) After the Pick Six™?

    3.) After Jennings' second quarter TD?

    4.) After Jennings' fourth quarter TD?

    5.) After the FG?

    6.) After the Steelers' failed on fourth down?

    7.) After the last kneel down?

    8.) "When I saw the Gatorade bath."

    9.) "Huh? I was always relaxed."

    10.) "I'm still not relaxed."

    11.) Other.

    P.S. Okay, now I know how to do a poll! I'll do it next time.

    I was way way more relaxed for the entire game than I was for the bears game. I couldn't sleep before that game. This one was just another game, but I didn't truly relax until the 4 and out to finish it.

    I'm realizing how much of an effect my paranoid father has on my game watching experiences. All of you were relaxed, my dad made me feel like we were down by a score instead of up for the entire game. It still wasn't as nerve-wrecking as the Bears game, I'll give you that.

    Oh my goodness, you just described game day throughout my entire childhood. Though he loved the Packers, my dad was the ultimate Packer pessimist, the King of the Karma Pick. He ALWAYS, without fail, bet me a buck they would lose.

    I made a lot of money off my dad when I was little. :smile:

    Did you grow up in Wisconsin?

    I was really relaxed but excited when the game started because i was very confidant the Packers would win. I got concerned when DD and Shields got hurt, but any real sense of doubt started when I saw Woodson going in to the locker room before half.

    I made a diamond necklace shoving coal up my *** the second half and didnt relax until #6 the 4th down in completion.

    Then I was all 0:43:happy0005:with my hanky and stuff!

    I wasn't that much in with the alcohol,..but I do know it had ZERO effect on the nerves... anyone know the tally that 12-85 pounded?? lol

    My son was the same way!!! Felt like we were behind with his stomping and yelling...eeesh!!!


    oops forgot to answer the poll... like I think Sarah said...I'm still on edge...still surreal!
    But during the game, I think I actually took a real deep breath on #7 ..when 12 took the knee!!!

    unbelievable game to top off an UNBELIEVABLE season!!!!

    I was feeling a little more relaxed after getting up 21-3 but as soon as the Steelers scored my heart was pounding so hard for the rest of the game I could actually see my shirt move.

    I am gonna go with 11. Other.

    I started to relax a couple days after, I had loads of anxiety the night before, so I didn't sleep. The night after I was so busy replaying certain downs in my head I didn't sleep lol. By Tuesday night I crashed hard and woke up feeling happy.

    Crazy what this game can do to you!

    I think I just relaxed this weekend...

    One would think that when a football game becomes so excruciatingly nervous, it's time to do something else for entertainment.

    But then again, the Green Bay Packers are not just entertainment...
    But it sure takes a toll.

    I didn't relax until Tramon knocked away that 4th down pass to Mike Wallace.
    I totally expected them to convert and move the ball closer and closer to beating us.
