10.7.2022 – even though ugly

even though ugly
belief gets created when
find way get job done

Football player sans peur et sans reproche Tom Brady got some attention on Wednesday by talking about, of all things for once, football.

NFL football.

A game he has played professionally for the current century-to-date.

Mr. Brady said, “I think there’s a lot of bad football from what I watch. I watch a lot of bad football. Poor quality of football. That’s what I see.

Mr. Brady is about as close to a King Midas in sports that we may ever see.

Somehow, almost everything he touches turns to gold.

The day after Mr. Brady said, “I think there’s a lot of bad football from what I watch. I watch a lot of bad football. Poor quality of football. That’s what I see.”, the NFL proved Mr. Brady right by playing one of the worst games in NFL history.

YAHOO Sports reported that, “The Thursday night game between the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos was awful. Irredeemably, comically, surreally awful. Four quarters and an overtime of self-inflicted gut punches.

The Colts and Broncos combined for 15 penalties, multiple injuries including a scary concussion, 12 punts, 10 sacks, six fumbles (none lost), four interceptions and zero touchdowns despite six (six!) red zone trips.”

How bad was it?

It was so bad that at one point, in this game between Denver and Indianapolis, the Referee announced, TIME OUT SAN DIEGO.

used without permission – gonna get sued

Announcer Al Michaels said, “Sometimes a game could be so bad, it’s almost good. You know what I mean?”

Commentator Kirk Herbstreit’s responded, “No.”

Winning Quarterback Matt Ryan (one of the two Super-Bowl Alumni quarterbacks in the game that failed to lead their team to a touchdown as all scoring was by field goals) tried to find some redeeming value to the game said, “… there’s belief that gets created, even though it’s ugly. There’s belief that gets created when you find a way to get the job done.

I liked that.

There has to be a positive spin.

Right?

Dig down and find it.

As Frank Reich, the winning coach said at the end, “Isn’t it awesome that you can have a game like that and still win.

Got to give Coach Reich a sticker on the helmet for scrapping the bottom of the pool and coming up with that one.

I go back to Mr. Brady (why does he always seem to be right?) and say I think there’s a lot of bad football from what I watch.

I watch a lot of bad football.

Poor quality of football.

That’s what I see.
