^ Well, these are the ultimate high risk high reward games. Fewer things feel like a bigger kick in the gut than watching your team lose to a big rival in a conference championship game. Then again, fewer things feel better than watching your team beat said rival. I'm going to watch the game but I'm definitely nervous for it. I'm rooting hard for the 49ers in the second game today so that I can have someone to root for in the Superbowl no matter what (cannot imagine rooting for Peyton Manning or Pete Carroll).
