Houston Texans Suprise Widow Of Fallen Marine

I always love stories about communities and organizations giving back.

This one is really special, considering my husband was in the Marines for almost ten years.

Scott Wood a Marine passed away due to injuries he received during combat in Iraq.  His wife Sara Wood and 5 year old son were invited to a halftime ceremony.

The Houston Texans surprised the fallen Marines widow and son with a custom built home. The home was provided by an organization called Operation Finally Home.

Operation Finally Home provides houses to wounded, disabled veterans or the widowed and their families and  all homes are mortgage free.

The house is located in the suburbs of Houston.

This charity has built 32 homes in 32 different states.

This is why I love our country…it is the greatest!

All Smiles For Tony Romo

It was all smiles from Tony Romo in the last few huddles on Saturday night. Recently married in May, a baby on the way, and a win. Tony Romo has to be feeling good about life. He led his Cowboys team to a victory  in a month, that in past has been a frigid one for Tony. The Cowboys now have an 8 and 6 record and control their own destiny to win the NFC East. He had 23 completions with 30 attempts against Tampa Bay. Romo threw for 249 yards with an average of 8.3 yards.

I love Direct TV Sunday Ticket

No, I am not writing this to promote Direct TV, earn money from affiliate links or to be paid for blogging this. I honestly love my Sunday ticket. My husband and I love our football. Careers have taken us out of our home town areas and into an area that doesn’t  have an NFL Team. All of the local channels show the team games in the next state over. With that being said, we both have teams that remain in our home-state hearts. Direct TV allows us the opportunity to watch our home state teams play.

I Hate Prevent Defense

I Hate Prevent Defense…

            I hate prevent defense. Many times a team has dominated the game, then in the end played prevent defense and allowed a team to drive down the field. Is anyone on board with me here?  Why if a team has found a way to control the game, do you change things in the final quarter?  We know the “ole” saying “if something works, no need to fix it.” Right? Not! I find myself asking this question time and time again.  Changing things in  the end of the game after you have held a lead playing a certain type of defense is well…..SILLY in my opinion. You see teams change it up because they are afraid of a big play happening, or don’t want to turn the ball over. “Com-on Man” as Keyshawn Johnson would say. If it has worked all game then….let them play the way it has gone for the game. Yeah, sometimes a big play happens. It seems to me that many times prevent defense leads to a LOSS plain and simple. So just stop it would ya!
