God asks Peyton Manning first: "What do you believe?" Peyton thinks long and hard, looks God in the eye, and says, "I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends. I believe ingiving. I was lucky, but I always tried to do right by my fans."God can't help but see the essential goodness of Manning, and offers hima seat to his left.
Then God turns to Tony Romo and says, "What do you believe?" Tony says, "I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor are the fundamentals of life. I, too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I've always tried to be a true sportsman, both on and off the playing fields." God is greatly moved by Tony's sincere eloquence, and he offers him a seat to his right.
Finally, God turns to Brett Favre: "And you, Brett, what do you believe?" Brett replies, "I believe you're in my seat."
Tonight the 10-1 Packers take on the 10-1 Cowboys in one of the biggest match ups of the year. Most people assume that the Cowboys are the better team but I'm hoping the Packers play passionately and smoothly and pull it out. I haven't anticipated a non-playoff game this much for quite a while. It has been an amazing season for Favre and the Packers and I hope it continues.
The only bummer is that the game is being shown on the NFL network which is currently a exta $ channel with Comcast. So I'll have to go out tonight to watch it. I do hope it spurs some complaints about the cost of specialty channels and the need to have national sporting events available to the public. In the meantime, Go PACKERS!
