Couldn't have said it better myself

This is sort of a "Heard" post, but it's more like "Read" or "Received," because it was not verbalized so much as, you know, text messaged to me. From B, who was all the way in yonder Seattle during last night's uber-harrowing game.

9:58 PM: Trailing 23-20 with 2:24 to go, Ben Roethlisberger and Santonio Holmes have completed three passes for 40 yards, progressing from the Pittsburgh 12-yardline to the Arizona 6.
B [via text]: !

10:00 PM: Second and goal on the Arizona 6, Roethlisberger lofts one into the corner and Holmes lands--barely--with two toes in the end zone. TOUCHDOWN! Or was it? Officials's good! The Steelers regains the lead, 27-23, with 35 seconds left, and I about have a heart attack for the fifth time in 20 minutes.
B: !!
Me: That's an understatement.
B: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
