It was hard this past week to be interested in the Super Bowl since the Steelers were not in it, but it was difficult to get away from ads, conversations and just plain curiosity of the Colts and Bears playing for Super Bowl XLI.
So Sunday, I was honored to watch the game with the Hess', Alicia of which is a HUGE Bears fan. She even showed me the Super Bowl Shuffle video of long ago when the Bears won their first Super Bowl. I secretly was rooting for the Colts (go AFC!) but I did root for the Bears when it seemed they would make a comeback.
After the game and during the trophy presentation, as I was gathering things to leave, my ear caught these remarks by Colts coach, Tony Dungy of winning the Super Bowl. I had alot of respect for the man prior to the Super Bowl and this only sealed the deal even more.
I'm proud to be the first African-American coach to win this...but again, more than anything, Lovie Smith and I are not only African-American but also Christian coaches, showing you can do it the Lord's way. We're more proud of that.
That made me smile.
It still does.
