Although I will be forever scarred by last year's Monday Night Football experience, I still allowed myself to get a little excited about the Bills playing the Browns last night.

It quickly became clear, however, that the Bills--who began the season with a 5-1 start, but have since fallen to 5-4--would soon be falling to 5-5.

Three interceptions thrown by Edwards in the very first quarter = bad news. I'm convinced that he only sucks now that I bought his jersey.

Somehow, the Bills managed to hold on and actually took the lead in the 4th quarter, with only two minutes to go. Unfortunately, I had a bad feeling that this would not be ending well. As predicted, the Browns marched down the field to quickly score a field goal, taking the lead.

And instead of answering with a good drive of their own to get into comfortable field goal range, the Bills coaches played too conservatively and put all of their confidence into the kicker to seal the deal with a 46-yard field goal into the strong wind.

Stupid, I tell you.

And "WIDE RIGHT" came back to curse the Bills once again. Our pretty reliable kicker hooked it to the right of the goal post and the game was over. Another loss.

Annoying. Disappointing. But typical.

On a more positive note, we had most excellent Monday Night Football food:

Baked Tostitos + leftover chili + melted cheddar cheese = MNF chili cheese nachos. Yum.

As for the Buffalo Bills... there's always next year (as Bills fans have been saying for the last 10 years). The bastards.

Damn! Next time I will have to make chili on a Sunday to have chili nachos during MNF. What was I thinking!

My husband is a Cleveland Browns season ticket holder and they were there for the game Monday night. Even though you guys lost (and we did NOT deserve the win either), he and his friends LOVE the Bills fans. Apparently you guys are awesome :) Don't worry...we suck this year too. Way worse than you guys.
