In just a bit, the New England Patriots will play the AFC Division Championship game vs Indianapolis Colts. 2013 has not been a great year for me, lots of family passed away, including my Mom. But for the Boston sports fans, it was a crazy ride for the Red Sox, who unexpectedly made a championship run out of a bunch of bearded guys. Now the Patriots are making an unexpected postseason appear because of suffering so many injuries to so many key players.
The grit shown by these teams should inspire all of us to try our best no matter what. Nobody likes lazy whiners who complain about this that and the other thing. There’s always someone worse off than you, for the most part. If you’ve lost your job for 6 months, there are others who have lost it for 24 months. If you had a health issue, someone else is certainly facing something worse. The bottom line is that you need to face your life with courage and strength, and try to remain positive. Good things will come to those who work hard and give their best at all times.
Let’s hope the Patriots give it their best this evening. Judging by what we’ve seen this season, they will give it their best shot.
