If you're looking for silver linings in the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs are not in the 2012 Super Bowl, look to Brian Waters. The former Chiefs guard and now New England Patriots offensive lineman is going to his first Super Bowl.
Waters was asked about his emotions after the game and said:
"I'm overjoyed. This is an unbelievable deal. This is probably the most excited I have been in a long time, since the birth of my children probably. God knows this has been unbelievable and I have been truly blessed. I appreciate my teammates and these guys welcomed me here and just gave me an opportunity to do something special."
Incredible. Gotta feel good about Waters getting his chance (at least I do). Makes it slightly easier to stomach the Chiefs missing out on the playoffs.
So, if the Patriots win this one and Waters gets a ring, we're just waiting on Tony Gonzalez to get one, right?
