NOT THE CHAMP…BUT THE 49ERS CHUMP

Posted by Mike Foster:

Yesterday was a great day for NFL football lovers. Four great teams battled like maniacs to go to the Super Bowl.

Unfortunately, both games ended with all the attention being put on 1 players HUGE mistake.

Billy Cundiff from the Baltimore Ravens missed an easy field goal that cost the Ravens the game. Kyle Williams from the 49ers became the goat by fumbling…twice…once in overtime allowing the Giants to win the game.

It’s not fun being Billy or Kyle right now. This one hurts a lot!

Sometimes when you’re the chump their isn’t a lot you can do. Nothing you can change or take back. You’r stuck with…history. And the replays. And the ESPN commentary and trending topic on Twitter. You’re stuck with the fact that millions of people just watched you choke.

These NFL players may not be able to do much but their teammates sure can.

This was demonstrated most clearly by the San Francisco 49ers who came to the strong defense of Kyle Williams.

Tight End Delanie Walker said, “We all lost this game…We play as a team — it’s 45 of us out there. It’s not Kyle’s fault, so don’t go over there and act like it is. Cause it’s not.”

Josh Morgan, another 49ers receiver stood at Williams empty locker and told reporters:

“I’m talking for Kyle,” Morgan said. “You have any questions, ask me. He’s not talking today. I got it.”

They had Kyle’s back. When it was easy to throw the chump to the wolves, their teammates stood their ground in support…and acted like true champions.

And that’s the way grace and second chances are suppose to work.


PRESIDENT OBAMA IS POTSC

So let’s put ugly politics aside for just a minute and deal with this beautiful truth:

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS POTSC.

This week he placed a phone call to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie thanking him for giving Michael Vick a second chance.

While on vacation in Hawaii, the president gave a virtual fist bump to Lurie for sticking his neck out for Vick after the dog fighting scandal.

Lurie told Sports Illustrated reporter Peter King that Obama said, “So many people who serve time never get a fair second chance,” and that the President was “passionate about it.”

He congratulated the Eagles owner for “doing something on such a national stage that showed our faith in giving someone a second chance after such a major downfall.”

The White House verified the statements and the conversation.

Maybe this is why Barack Obama was just voted the most admired man in the world.

He certainly has my admiration on lending his platform to the message of second chances and giving support to Michael Vick.

Thanks for being POTSC Mr. President!


TIME FOR SOME NFL SMACK TALK

I walked into a pool hall the other day with some friends.

I almost cried tears of joy when I saw that the TV had a NFL Football game on.

I couldn’t believe my luck! I haven’t seen a single game since living in Bangkok.

It was the last 2 minutes of the 4th quarter. My heart was overflowing with gratitude. I love football!

Then the TV announcers said their was another game coming up. I was super stoked!!!

The 4th quarter ended and then….they cut to…a FREAKING SOCCER MATCH! I cried some more.

I’m a huge San Diego Chargers fan. I’ve got the Jerseys. Replica Helmets. Flag. SD Charger Chip and Salsa Helmet. Mini football. I’m full on baby!

Jud is a Cowboys fanatic. (Pray for him.)

So who is your team? And are you a smack talker when it comes to football?
