The Strong Man Submits

Speaking of the Green Bay Packers (see below), here is an interesting quote from defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila. His playing time has been reduced, and he is not that pleased with that situation. However, notice how he has responded.

“God tells me to submit to the authorities in my life, and that’s Coach Sherman and Coach ‘Slo,’ ” he said. “Just like in my household. Me and my wife talk about what she wants. Ultimately, I make the final decision, and she supports that decision.”

“I may not know what’s best for me. That’s why they’re the coach and I’m just a player.”

Which is more remarkable: a professional athlete submitting to his coach or a wife submitting to her husband?

It is all up to Brett Favre….again.

It seems like the nation is bracing for Tuesday. Kerry and Bush are still trying to secure votes while a lot of Americans are getting their home ready for an Election Night party.

However, maybe everybody should be paying attention to Sunday’s National Football League game between the Washington Redskins and the Green Bay Packers. Apparently, in presidential election history, if the Redskins win, the incumbant also wins on Tuesday. But if the national capital’s team loses, his opponent wins.

Since I do not believe in any of this stuff, I will, as usual, root for Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers. And if Kerry wins, I will not blame the Green and Gold.
