For those of you who have checked out my blog over the last two days, you know that two days ago, I posted a pessimistic post, and yesterday, I posted an optimistic post. Interesting fact: My pessimistic post got twice as many views as my optimistic post. That’s a little disappointing. Now, I will admit, the pessimistic post had a better shot of being read when everybody was off work on Sunday (because it was posted Saturday night). The optimistic post, on the other hand, was posted on Sunday night, so more people were at work and less likely to read it on this Monday. I might have to monitor that, though. I hope my optimistic posts can get more views in the future. Keep the pessimistic post views coming, just increase the optimistic post views.
Well, Clemson did it. They took down mighty Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship by a score of 35-31. The victory included a game-winning TD with one second left on the clock. I was cheering for Alabama, but it was a phenomenal game. I hope you all had a chance to watch it. Congrats Clemson! You earned it. You proved me wrong for all the times I’ve said that you were overrated.
I talked about New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr punching a hole in the wall of the Green Bay Packers’ visitors’ locker room, yesterday. Well, he wasn’t the only Giant that handled the loss poorly. After the team departed their plane from their flight back home, the next flight on the plane was delayed for TWO HOURS for cleaning. Despite the cleaning, many passengers on that next flight complained about the smell of booze and the crumbs of food and tobacco on their seats. The Giants were so distraught, they trashed a plane. I confess, I’m very disappointed to be a Giants fan right now. I can only imagine the fines if Tom Coughlin was still the head coach…
Speaking of Tom Coughlin, he was one of two hires by the Jacksonville Jaguars today. He was hired to work in the front office, while Doug Marrone was promoted from part-time, to full-time head coach. Congrats to the Jaguars! I think this will be a great thing for the franchise. They now have Coughlin’s discipline, and a capable coach in Marrone, who almost fixed the Bills before his departure by his own will. But, as always, time will tell.
It’s the final countdown. The final countdown until the next big moment and/or decision in your life. Whatever that decision and/or moment is, be ready for it. Take advantage of it. Every moment and decision can change the course of your life forever. So, make the right choice. Don’t shy away from the right choice for any reason. Believe me, you will regret it if you do. But, if you do make a mistake, stay positive. Every time a door closes, AT LEAST one more opens. Stay happy. Sing, dance, laugh, clap, etc. Whatever it takes to lift your spirits and the spirits of the people around you. Everything will be just fine. Only you can bring yourself down. And only you can keep yourself up. Do what you want to do. The sky is the limit. Believe in yourself and be who you want to be because nobody can bring you down, slow you down, or take anything from you if you don’t let them.
