First, I'd like to say that being named "Colt McCoy" automatically makes you awesome.
Last night was the college football national championship game. The game was supposed to feature some close competition between the University of Texas Longhorns and the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. But instead, the star quarterback of the Longhorns was injured just a few minutes into the game. In his last game before he graduates from UT, this was Colt McCoy's childhood dream. Instead he watched from the sideline as his team could not win the championship without him.
But here's where it's intriguing enough to be on the blog. Listen to what he says in the post-game interview:
"I always give God the glory...God is in control of my life...Congrats to Alabama. Tremendous football team."
I love this. And I've gotta admit, if someone sticks a microphone in my face and says, "Hey, Eli! It's been a little under 3 hours since your 20-year dream was crushed! How does it feel?" I'd probably use my good arm to snap the mic in two before I walked away ('cause I'd be that strong if I were a football player).
The fact that it's a football player or a soldier or a factory worker makes no difference to me. I want more of this attitude in my life.
