A “subdued” celebration

I’m not going to name any names, but here is what I am told about tonight in Kansas City.
“There was an appropriate level of celebrating and knowing OK, this part of the job is over but the next part of it starts tomorrow.”
The team will pick up the tab on “one or two drinks.” Some players will be going to the Seahawks game tomorrow after the team lands in Seattle.
Said unidentified person of the match: “It was one of those games where I was nervous because we weren’t finishing our chances. That usually comes back to bite you in the butt.”
This type of celebration seems in line with the business-like approach the team has had all season. The only time the guys really cut loose was the U.S. Open Cup win. So far, anyway.
