But, my rooting and hooting fizzled out about 8:30am, and I went to bed.....I know, I am a Super Bowl Dud....
I should have stayed AWAKE, because my "boys" turned the tables on the Colts and WON!
Hubby was nice enough to show me the video replays of the game, and it totally reminds me of that children's story The Little Engine That Could.
According to Wikipedia, the story of the little engine has been told and retold many times. The underlying theme however is the same - a stranded train is unable to find an engine willing to take it on over difficult terrain to its destination. Only the little blue engine is willing to try, and while repeating the mantra "I think I can, I think I can" overcomes a seemingly impossible task. After that task was completed, it congratulated itself by saying, "I thought I could, I thought I could."
"QB nobody wanted becomes player who outdueled Manning in Super Bowl..." That headliner grabbed my attention and I read the article on msnbc.
The author of the article wrote, "The Saints have several players whose original teams let them go. The Saints took them in and gave them a chance to succeed. And most of them went through the Katrina aftermath, sharing the pain and the loss and the struggle to come back."
Then, the author quoted Brees as responding,
“You use it as motivation. You use it a strength,” Brees said. “That’s what molds you. That’s what gives you that mental toughness. Going through those hard times is what gives you the opportunity to do something like this.”
He is my kind of guy!
