football, etc.

Hello. I don't have very much tonight, but I thought that I would go ahead and send it before I get behind again.

The first article is about why Colts head coach Tony Dungy, a Christian, should be Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year. Here's a good quote about him:

Tony Dungy will probably never stand on a soapbox, shove a cameraman, toss a chair, berate a reporter, pat himself on the back or raise his voice, and because of that it is easy to forget about him sometimes.

In an era when civility in sports and in life is too often overshadowed by the loud and the boorish, Dungy remains classy among the clowns, calm among the agitated.

Here's the article:

Here's another Sportsman of the Year article, this one about LPGA golfer Lorena Ochoa, also a Christian:

Next, an article about Packers back-up quarterback Aaron Rodgers, a Christian, and how he almost never gets to play backing up Brett Favre. The article also talks about when and how he might play once Favre does decide to retire. Here's a great quote from him:

Rodgers would love to give Green Bay back-to-back Hall of Fame quarterbacks. "But if my legacy is being a good teammate and friend, that's more important to me than any records," he says. "Think about it: if you play 10 years and live to be 70, that's only one-seventh of your life. What matters are the relationships you take with you."

Here's the article:

Here's another article about Lions quarterback Jon Kitna, a Christian, and how his leadership and upbeat attitude has helped the Lions improve this year and possibly make the playoffs:

Next, an article about the work that Major League Baseball and its teams and players have done to help their communities this past year:

Lastly, a funny but good note from yesterday's Florida/Florida State football game: Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, a Christian, was having another superb Heisman-caliber game, which left the broadcasters speechless. Finally, one of the broadcasters said, "And he teaches Sunday school!" I just thought that it was neat that they added that.
