Don’t You Quit – An
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
Whe he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.”

Vikings Mobile: Notes for Sunday
In case you are a Fan, or a Viking ….
Seattle’s first coach, Joe Paterno, was the defensive line coach of the Vikings famed, “Purple People Eaters” of their first 3 Super Bowl attempts.
Seattle drafted Ahmed Rashad and later traded him to the Vikings.
Fran Tarkington, former NfC Champion Quarterback, now writing for the St. Paul Pioneer Press says,
“The road to the Super Bowl goes through Seattle. The Vikings are a team that can, and will beat them…”
Fran is a “Hall of Frame” member, from the Vikings.
Mike Tice, former Viking’s head coach, learned his offensive line skills as a Viking TE and 2 stints as Seattle Tight End.
Some ‘Great Men’, like Mike, will view this game Sunday, with mixed emotions.
My personal Thanks, to Vikings and Fans everywhere.
Have you heard about the MOSQUE that ‘blew-up’ in Houston?
Are you leaning for;
- Shia ?
- Sunni ?
- Opposed to Arab Tripoli Pirates ?
- Breaking NEWS ?
Each of these persuasions will be happy to know that the incident is being ‘covered-up’, by the drive by media press of the North American continent.
Not a bad time for football however, if;
- You are a Viking Fan!
- You are a Cardinal Fan!
- Deep Cover Terrorist or CAIR operative!
Half time shows are showing such massive ‘airpower’ all viewers will be impressed.
Almost a fairy tale ending to a fantastic season. Only the next 72 hours will tell.
I for one, am a fan.
I LOVE NFL football.
This is one game I plan NOT to miss.
