QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019

Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi Everyone!  Even though I am watching Liberty National PGA Golf on
the side today, I still have the new football season on my mind.  Guess being
born and raised in Green Bay Packerland, I have been indoctrinated in the
sport.  Diffficult not to be as many people living in the Vince Lombardi era
the late Championship Football Coach as a motivational, influential
mentor.......We were a population of less than 45,000 in my youth and I know
listening to the Green Bay Packer coach on our little kitchen radio each
morning preparing for school, the things being said were being imprinted
on my brain.  We were influenced by many factors.

We knew we were a small inconsequential team of men from the local meat
packing company...many of us stood to watch the games as they were played
on the football field of our local East High School.  We were dirt poor and had
little money........And therefore, today the Packers are sort of unique in the
NFL:  the team does not technically have a single owner, or a handful of
partners.  Instead, the Green Bay Packers is owned by hundred of thousands
of fans;  yes, the FANS  OWN the TEAM.   Fans bought a piece of the Green
Bay Packers in a public stock sale.  As the Packers website explains: 
"...Publically owned nonprofit corporation since Aug. 18, 1923..."  I, along
with a number of people in my family have fun saying:  I am an owner of
the Green Bay Packers.   My few hundreds of dollars probably net me a
2 X 4  square inch  of the football field:)  Probably what I got more from this
relationship is my love of inspirational and motivatioal quotes.  Hope you are
having a wonderful weekend.                                                         ~Jane

"A  CHAMPION is simply someone who did not give up when they wanted to."
                                                                                  ~Tom Landry, Dallas Cowboys

"For EVERY pass I caught in a game, I caught a THOUSAND in practice."
                                                                            ~Don Hutson, Green Bay Packers

"It takes 20 YEARS to build a reputation and 5 MINUTES to ruin it."

"If you're not gonna go ALL the way, why go at ALL?"
                                                                              ~Joe Namath,  New York Jets

" You FAIL all of the time.  But you aren't a FAILURE until you start
blaming someone else."                                       ~Bum Phillips, Houston Texans

"Authenticity is everything!  You have to wake up every day and look in the
mirror, and you want to be proud of the person who's looking back at you.
And you can only do that if you're being honest with yourself and being a
person of high character.  You have an opportunity evey single day to write 
that story of your life."       
                                            Green Bay Packer Quarterback, Aaron Rodgers

"We would  ACCOMPLISH many more things if we did not think of them
as IMPOSSIBLE."                                                                ~Vince Lombardi

  Some people learn from it;

Hi Jane,  My wife is a tried and true Packers fan too.  All of these great motivational quotes are very inspiring.  My favorite although, does not come from one of the Packers - it is Tom Landry - "A  CHAMPION is simply someone who did not give up when they wanted to."

The Packers seem to have an amazing fan base.  We get quite a few Packer backers in the East Valley during the Winter months.

Hi Jane - although I am not a football fan, there is much history to know about the Green Bay Packers:  the public ownership, Vince Lombardi(so many great quotes) and fierce loyalty.  Here's to a fun season.
