Today is Super Bowl Sunday. For me, it’s always been a great day. This year is extra special because the team that’s woven into my DNA, the Kansas City Chiefs, is playing for a chance to win their second straight Lombardi Trophy.
The Super Bowl is a celebration of the game of football. Football has become America’s Game. Rightfully so.
It’s the perfect modern American Game.
A contest is scheduled.
Fans, coaches, and players prepare. They can even talk some trash before the game.
The game is played. The teams tried to bash each other’s heads in for four quarters.
One side wins. One side loses.
At the end of the game, we shake hands, go our separate ways, and then get ready for the next game. It’s play the game, enjoy it, and get back to work.
See what I mean? It truly is America’s Game.
A lesson staring us in the face about what we need to do as a nation, as the United States of America, moving forward into 2021 and beyond.
It’s easy to get sidelined by things outside of our control. It’s easy to become caught in a loop of emotion and lost in confusion. It’s easy to lose sight of what’s vital and important.
Enjoy the Super Bowl today!
Cheer and scream for our team. Eat, drink, and be merry. Most importantly, be safe and be true.
When the game is over, shake hands, and wish your opponent well. Then wake up tomorrow and get back to the business of being a good American. We need teamwork to put the greatest nation on Earth back on the right track. We need each other.
America’s Game is asking for you to chip in.
