Sometimes in life, circumstances can…well, let’s not beat around the bush folks, they can suck. We can decide to let them define us and how we live our life. Or we can envision how we want life to be and how we will deal with the adversity.
This video is about that. But first a little setup is needed.
The man you’ll see speaking is Chuck Pagano. Chuck spent 28 years toiling as an assistant in college and the NFL before becoming the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts this year. Chuck hasn’t been on the sidelines since late Sept. when he found out he has a treatable form of leukemia.
Also relevant, the Colts were a dismal 2 & 14 last year. They completely rebuilt the team, less a handful of veterans they kept, and are just a bunch of rookies and castoffs nobody wanted. They were picked by everyone, including this diehard Colts fan of 40 plus years, to win no more than 5/6 games.
Chuck is about to receive his second round of treatment but managed to go see his team play yesterday. They won to improve to an improbable 5 & 3 and are in the hunt for the playoffs.
Here is Chuck Pagano addressing his team post game.
