Are you going to watch the 'big game' today????? Where will you be and what will you do???? George and I will be at home watching the game on our big screen TV. Since my team (Tennessee Titans) didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year, I am not really as interested in the game as I am in the COMMERCIALS. I always enjoy seeing all of the new commercials during the Super Bowl. Do you???? And I'm usually for the underdog team, this year being the Arizona Cardinals.
Football and food go together---so what are you having for dinner or snacks tonight??? We'll cook some Kielbasa on our outdoor grill and supplement that with a baked potato and salad. That's about it for us!!!
I recently got one of those email 'forwards' which go all over the internet. This one caught my eye because it talked about the Arizona Cardinal's Quarterback, KURT WARNER. AND--like so many things on the internet, the article wasn't totally true. BUT--it did say enough about Kurt for me to do some research on him. The more I read, the more I liked that young man and his life--and what he stands for. Wow!
Kurt Warner (pictured above) has become known for his commitment to his family, his clean-kid lifestyle, and his Christian faith. He and wife Brenda live in St. Louis with their SEVEN children. He is the founder of the First Things First Foundation. Kurt feels that he is where he is today because of his belief of NEVER giving up. That is the message he wants to get out there to others. He is living proof of the importance of having a strong faith in God, in himself and in his talents. His formula for success is putting first things first---FAITH and FAMILY.
If you go to the Warner's home, you will not see anything about the father being a professional football player. The home is not a shrine to athletics but a tribute to a family at work and play. The family wrote "Eight RULES for being a Warner Daughter or Son". One of these rules is that when they dine out at a restaurant, the family agrees on which strangers' meal to pay for. Isn't that incredible????
SO---that is why I am 'rooting' for the Arizona Cardinals tonight... GO Kurt!!!
