“He just sets the example…”

An interesting comment from a guy on an ESPN article on Tim Tebow (specifically in regard to Tebow’s overt Christianity):
“There’s a guy who doesn’t waiver. What I haven’t heard from Tebow is a demand that you live like he lives. He just sets the example and hopes others see the benefits. I’m not a religious man, but that’s exactly the way it should be done. Lead by example.”
I’m an unabashed Tim Tebow fan. I have no idea how he continues to win games while completing less than 50% of his passes, but I think he is an overwhelmingly positive role model.


Miles To Go

When I am weary and feel nearly overwhelmed by all the things I have to get done, I draw encouragement and resilience from my favorite Robert Frost poem:

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Here’s to keeping the promises and traveling the miles!


Not So Fast

The stories coming out of Penn State concerning former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky’s sexual assault of multiple boys and the subsequent cover-up by the university have been shocking and sickening.

I came across the following picture and caption today:

“State College artist Michael Pilato paints over the portion of his mural that shows former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky in downtown State College, Pennsylvania, November 9, 2011. REUTERS/Pat Little”
I thought the picture was more than a little ironic—it’s only natural that Penn St. fans would like to paint over Sandusky and pretend the whole thing never happened, but isn’t that the same feeling that led to the cover-up?

Here’s the deal: Sandusky’s sick actions, and especially the ensuing cover-up, tainted the entire football program. Either leave the mural the way it was and try to convince yourself that the on-field success isn’t tainted by Sandusky and Co., or whitewash the entire wall.

That is all.
