House money is a good way of looking at it in truth. I felt the exact same way last year when we went to Seattle and then we came this close to pulling it off. Sometimes the house does lose and if you show up with the right cards you just never know. I actually felt last year we matched up better with Chicago than Seattle or New Orleans. I thought if we could get past Seattle by hook or by crook. Turns out the crook may be a Seattle ball boy. Watch 'em like a hawk.
