Another great play by Green Bay! The players’ talent is undeniable but I always look to the coaching. McCarthy is an impressive coach by any standard, even one following in the footsteps of a legend.
Poetry in motion
Wow, what a game today! Watching outstanding football plays is like watching poetry in motion. With more yelling and spilled draft beer.
While the Cowboys are nothing to sneeze at, I hear myself cheering for Green Bay. Is it because of Aaron Rodgers? Sam Shields? Eddie Lacy? No. It’s the legendary Vince Lombardi.
Leave no regrets on the field
Arguably the best professional sports coach in history, Vince Lombardi was also very eloquent. My favorite among his quotes is, “Leave no regrets on the field.”
The full quote is:
His greatest fulfilment to all he holds dear is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious! Leave no regrets on the field.
Shouldn’t we all live like this?
What would our lives look like if we left no regrets on our fields? Whether we’re a pilot, courier, bookkeeper, dog walker, chef, framer, rodeo cowboy, makeup artist, landscaper, tour guide operator. What if we worked our hearts out for our own good cause?
Glorious on our fields of battle
At the end of the day, the close of the project, the conclusion of the deal, the championship final — we’d lie exhausted on our fields of battle knowing we couldn’t have given anything more. How glorious.
If we lived this way, no matter the outcome, we’d have no regrets. There can be no better way to live.
Stellar coaching for a beautiful life
Luckily for us, we have the greatest coach of all-time in our corner. How can we lose?
