A Victory That Wasn’t

February 3, 2020 at 6:50 pm Leave a comment


Ahead 20-10 and 11:57 minutes left in the game, the 49ers intercepted the Chiefs QB Mahones for the second time.

It looked like game over for the Chiefs. This led some 49ers to run to the end zone and celebrate what they thought would be an imminent victory.

But it wasn’t meant to be. Although the 49ers had Mahones on the ropes, it proved that he still had more in the tank to bring his team back to life.

Down two scores, he performed his magic and rallied his team to three unanswered touchdowns in a span of six minutes to beat the 49ers 31-20.

“Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched,” according to Aesop. It’s one lesson that we can learn from the last Super Bowl. The other is to have heart, never give up, and fight to the end as excemplified by Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, who eventually emerged as the champions.

The 49ers are a young team belonging to a class organization. Perhaps they can be forgiven for this undue exuberance this time around? I’m sure they have realized that it was plain childish and that it won’t happen again.
