Saturday morning began with live footage of Saddam Hussein
getting hung. A friend sent me a link to a site where someone
filmed it on his cell phone. I watched it. Gruesome.
The Saddam show was quickly intercepted by the celebration
of former President Gerald R. Ford’s life. Thank goodness.
I have always loved watching the news when respects are
paid to former presidents. The first I watched was Lyndon
Johnson. It took a long time before we had another – Nixon,
followed by Reagan – and now Ford.
In reviewing Ford’s life, I was intrigued to read about his
success as a football player for the University of Michigan.
He played both center and linebacker – and was on two
national championship teams 1932, 1933, – was an all-star –
as well as the team’s most valuable player.
In his senior season, however, the Wolverines lost all
but one of their games – yet Jerry Ford had no quit
in him, and showed this many times, in particular, a
losing cause against Minnesota.
In an interview Ford said he often recalled how hard
he played the game in college – and how this same
trait served him well when his athletic career was
over. He referred most of all, to how he played in
the game against Minnesota, who won the national
title that year.
“During 25 years in the rough-and-tumble world of politics,
I often thought of the experiences before, during, and after
that game in 1934. Remembering them has helped me many
times to face a tough situation, take action, and make every
effort possible despite adverse odds.”
Sounds like grand champion advice to me.
So let me ask, “Are you giving it all you’ve got in your quest to
be healthy and fit?”
Believe me, getting fit is a winning cause. But you do have to
fight for what you want.
