1). Blog Entry: Life Lessons - Never Give Up
This past weekend was full of football, as Thanksgiving weekend always is. I enjoy watching the games, but it was tough on Friday when the Huskers lost to the Hawkeyes and ended their season. Last night, my favorite NFL Team, the Broncos, were going up against an undefeated New England Patriots in primetime. Our star quarterback is still on the shelf so we started our backup against arguable the best quarterback in the league, Brady. Within the first few possessions, the Patriots had already scored two touchdowns and looked like they were going to roll. I considered turning the game off and focusing solely on putting up Christmas decorations, but instead I decided to keep watching. I'm so glad I did. My team slowly but surely caught up, and won in overtime. It was a huge victory, and one that I almost didn't even see. LIFE LESSON - Never Give Up, you never know what could happen.
