Pretending to Be…

The Only Correct Super Bowl Prediction…

The Best story, in my opinion, from media week:

The NFL can be a very cold business. Ask Cardinals punter Ben Graham. He was with the Jets to start this season, and the day after New York demolished the Cardinals in Week 4 in the Meadowlands, Graham was getting ready to take part in the Jets 2008 team picture. But not so fast, Ben.

“I was walking toward the locker room to get changed for the team photo and I got a tap on the shoulder,” Graham said Tuesday. “I went upstairs and was told I was being released. So I actually left the building walking past my teammates getting their photo taken as a team. That was tough.”

Graham was signed by the Cardinals and now here he is in the Super Bowl. No word on whether he made it to Arizona in time for the Cardinals team picture.

Good for Ben Graham being in the Super Bowl.
And that’s a microcosm why the Jets are in a mess right now. No class at all.
From Don Banks’ article in Sports Illustrated Tuesday January 27, 2009

Pittsburgh wins it 27-24, with Big Ben throwing the game winning TD to Hines Ward.
MVP: The first player in the history of the game to win two Super Bowl MVPs as a receiver, Hines Ward.
You heard it here first.

Does this Look Familiar???

Saw this Nike Commercial.. I love Football commercials; something about the whole romanticization of muddy practice in the rain, vein-popping screaming during the last rep of the last set of bench-press, bone crunching hits during scrimmages, and the eruption of skirmishes after the whistle. Its not far from reality, but its the underlying fantasy that football purist and people who know nothing about football all imagine it being.

The preparation for a Football season, no matter at what level, is to see how far you can push yourself physically in order to achieve new heights of success.

The hardest workers in Football are usually the individuals who can succeed at whatever they attempt in any and all aspect of life. Its not about being a good or bad player. Its about not giving up and working at it till the end. Its not about whether you won or lost the game; its about whether or not you played the game to the fullest extent of your ability, whatever level that may be.

I think that’s the most important thing I learned while playing Football.

The Giants sucking right now has Football on my mind, when the last of my finals should be.

Let me just say that this man transcended football. You couldn’t but help to root for this man in all his endeavors. I can not think of a person more revered and more respected in the NFL since Walter Payton was toting the ball for the Chicago Bears. Peter King, the best sports writer in the country, (that is fact people not opinion) says it best in his favorite memory of Brett Favre. (read the article, its worth it)

“You’re kidding!” I said. “You had that penny in your sock all game?”

“Of course,” he said. “She said it’d be lucky.”

In 50 years I will be proud to say that I had watched Brett Favre play the game of football.
