What impressed me most about the post game celebration was the tweet that their quarterback sent out after the game.
Only 11 characters long:
Yes, that is right. For those who don’t know, Cardale Jones is Ohio State’s 3rd string quarterback who started his first game in the Big Ten Championship game last month after the 2nd string quarterback, JT Barrett was injured in the Michigan game. And, JT had played in that position all year because the first string quarterback, Braxton Miller injured his shoulder before the season began and everyone thought Ohio State’s season was OVER before it started!
So, when I think of all the reasons I give to myself and everyone else for not getting something done with excellence, I stop and think about my buddy, Cardale, aka 3rd String.
OSU had all the reasons in the world NOT to advance to the biggest game in college football. But they did. Led by their third string quarterback, they crushed Wisconsin to get to the Sugar Bowl.
Then, everyone (well, many people) said that they would never beat a Southeastern Conference Team, especially the powerhouse, Number 1 ranked Alabama.
Led by their third string QB, they did just that.
Bring on Monday night, I say! It’s the Bucks versus the Ducks – let’s see what they Can Do! (On a side note, I will be in Dallas on business but not going to the game. Not that I did not try, but the nosebleed tickets start at $550! Alas, Cardale, I will cheer you on from my cousin’s home, about 10 miles away! So close, yet so far… Go Bucks!)
So, what have been your excuses? What has held you back from achieving – even working on – your dreams and goals? What is stopping you now?
