"The record would have meant nothing if we had lost this game," said Favre, who engineered his 38th career fourth-quarter comeback. "I am so glad we won, that I could care less about the record."
What record you ask.
Brett Favre just tied Dan Marino for all time career touchdown passes.
They both have 420.
But, he really isn't motivated by records.
He just loves to win football games.
And we love to watch him win football games!
It's like he has a little bit of Vince Lombardi in his soul.
"If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?"
"Winning is not a sometime thing: it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while; you don't do the right thing once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing."
"Winning isn't everything--but wanting to win is."
~Vince Lombardi, legendary football coach
It has been a delight watching that boy/man play for seventeen years!
Pure gridiron delight.
You still there?
You'll have to excuse me....sometimes football is the most exciting thing to happen around here :o)
Yesterday on The Well Trained Mind board someone asked;
What is the best book you have ever read?
I couldn't write just one down.
So I wrote down five.
These are the five books that I have in my long, long life....
shoved at my family and friends and said, "This is such a great book, you have to read it!!"
My books are:
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
The Princess Bride by William Goldman
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
Exodus by Leon Uris
(The best book, in all the world of course, is the Bible.
But it is in a category all by itself.)
What books do you consider to be your top five books?
I can't wait to see your favorites!
