Keeping Perspective

Yesterday was the AFC Championship and your’s truly is a big fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars. I won’t get into the details of the game because that would become a post of it’s own and the loss is still raw. Luckily work has been a welcomed distraction today and I’ve had a great, productive day.

It’s been a somber day for Jaguars fans, no doubt. Still, it was a season to remember for a franchise that’s had a rough 10 years. While I believe they should be in the Super Bowl, sometimes things just don’t work out as you’d like them. Such is life.

What’s funny is how much a sports game can impact your emotions. In the grand scheme of things, the game means very little. But sports have an incredible way of bringing people together. I was lucky enough to watch the game with a great group of people and had a Sunday afternoon I won’t soon forget. While the loss sucks, it’s helpful to keep that perspective.

Also — watch out for the Jaguars next year. They’ll be back 😏.

The NFL Playoffs

From time to time I’ll write about sports in here, especially when it’s top-of-mind like it is today.

The NFL Playoffs are an awesome time of year. While the series format (e.g. NBA) has merit, the “win or go home” nature of the NFL Playoffs raises the stakes. It makes each game that much more important.

Today my team, the Jacksonville Jaguars (I was born in JAX) are in the playoffs for the first time since 2007. They’re hosting a playoff game in Jacksonville for the first time since 1999. Needless to say… I’m excited.
