Never give up

January 7, 2015 - 1:58pm
I'll admit it. I was not being a good Spartan. As everyone knows, the football team was down by 20 points in the fourth quarter of the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 1 - and I had pretty much given up. I said to my husband, "Ugh. We are certainly not going to win this game. Oh well, we still had a good year. Baylor is a really good team." Then he reminded me what being a true Spartan is all about. He said, "Hold up, don't count them out yet. Don't give up." He proceeded to lay out all sorts of plays and scenarios that seemed unlikely but would take the Spartans to victory. It was clear that the team -those young student-athletes on the field and a national stage - were not giving up. Even after making mistakes, they dusted off and displayed grit and determination. In true Spartan fashion, they never gave up. A blocked field goal, touchdowns, a couple of sacks and an interception and all of a sudden the Spartans were celebrating victory. In an exciting and unlikely comeback MSU had won the game.
