Super Bowl XLV- It's PACKER Time!
To say that this is the game of games, is an understatement. Green Bay Packers have been my team ever since I was a little girl and took an unlikely interest in football.
How many little girls do you know that like, let alone understand football?
I raised all three of my boys to be Packers fans too. The only thing that could make this game sweeter is if my boys were all here to watch it with me. At least they'll be cheering our team on to victory.
We decided not to go to any parties this year because:
1. It's my team & I want to watch it...when you go to parties you end up visiting and missing a lot of the game.
2. My hubby, Anthony, is getting ready for a BIG job interview for a crew chief position for the City on Tuesday. We've been working on interview questions (mock interviews), and he's been studying so he'll be completely prepared. He has school on Monday night so not much time left for his preparation (prayers for him on Tuesday please!)
3. My back is still ridiculously sore and I have to lay down all the time (x-ray on Monday).
So this year will be a chill, kick back at home Super Bowl, and once they win, I can take the Packers helmet off the top of our t.v. (vowed not to remove it until they win), so it's been a part of my decor since playoffs started.
LET'S GO PACKERS...they've overcome adversity, fighting their way from a wild card team to the Super Bowl. The Packers have been on a roll, winning game after game, behind Aaron Rodgers (who obviously learned a lot from Brett Favre, by the way he's been playing.) With Clay Matthews attacking Ben Roethlisberger, play after play, you will see one frustrated Steelers QB.
This should be just one more game on the road to bringing the Lombardi trophy home.
I'll end this post with quotes from the great Vince Lombardi:
“If you’ll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.”
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.”
“If you’re lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he’s never going to come off the field second.”
“After all the cheers have died down and the stadium is empty, after the headlines have been written, and after you are back in the quiet of your room and the championship ring has been placed on the dresser and after all the pomp and fanfare have faded, the enduring thing that is left is the dedication to doing with our lives the very best we can to make the world a better place in which to live.”
“Winning is not a sometime thing…it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while…you don’t do the right thing once in a while…you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit.”
“Mental toughness is many things and rather difficult to explain. Its qualities are sacrifice and self-denial. Also, most importantly, it is combined with a perfectly disciplined will that refuses to give in. It’s a state of mind – you could call it ‘character in action.’” “Mental toughness is essential to success.”
It's PACKER TIME!
