Good guys DO win!

Congratulations to Tony Dungy and the Indianapolis Colts! It's nice to see the Good Guy win! Tony was fired by the Glazer family (owners of my Tampa Bay Buccaneers) because he did not take the Bucs to the "next level", never mind that he took a team that was the joke of the NFL, turned them around and took them to the playoffs, and NFC championship game. He was too laid back for them, too calm. They wanted someone who would scream at the players, rather than offer calm counsel. Someone who would curse and make faces, rather than lead by example. Someone who would work long hours rather than make time for his family. So, they fired our beloved Tony, and hired Jon Gruden. We got our Super Bowl the following season...I still say that was Tony Dungy's team that won us a ring. It was great to see Tony's team win last night, and it was even greater to hear him stand up and talk about being a man of God, and how proud he was of his team. How proud he was to be the first African American coach to win a Super Bowl, and to not follow the norm, but doing it "God's Way". Amen, Brother. What a wonderful example for all to follow.
