To all my sports fans this month I’d like to pay tribute to those teams and individuals that won a championship ring or brought home the gold! The road to championships is a winding road with many curves and obstacles. Take a look back at Auburn’s come back wins in 2010, and Alabama’s close calls in 2009. The truth is that winning comes down to a matter of inches and seconds. Many have come up short or let time pass them by. Winners are immune to adversity and adversity is something every champ has faced. As your favorite team take the field this week, take a moment and reminisce on how fun it was watching them be successful!

“Remembering A Champ”

They have knowledge only the strong would know,
They went on this journey long ago.
With grit and wit as they hit with incredible pride,
They took us all on an unforgettable ride.

Just as wave after wave won’t batter the shark,
The brave never cave it’s a matter of heart.
When they were hurt they proved their worth, because they understood the pain.
Their code was play with soul and now a banner hangs.

They shared a common goal… to win a ring,
Today it is an honor to commend supreme.
A team is not a team when they first enter camp,
This is the reason and the season to remember a champ.
