The summer days get a little shorter and you can feel it. As August fades into September the air gets a little crisper.You take a deep breath and you can smell it flowing through the changing leaves…As you exhale, you smile.. Football season is in the air!
With every new football season comes a fresh clean slate. A new beginning… Everyone is a contender once again. Last season means nothing. The off-season is in the rear view mirror and we are driving forward on a new journey… Destination unknown.
Optimism fills the air and even the worst team from last season has high hopes and big dreams and who’s to say any different. Who would have thought that the Baltimore Ravens would be Super Bowl champs last season. For every NFL fan hope springs eternal and anything is possible at this time of year.
Enjoy this part of the season while it last because the slate does not stay clean long. The journey is long and you never know what exactly lies in the road ahead.
Will the ride be smooth? Will the road be full of unexpected turns and potholes?
Do we have enough good spare tires in case of flats? Do we have enough gas in the tank to get where we need to be?
Time will tell and just like any journey our destination will become clearer as we go.
As for now though the glass is half full… The car has a full tank, we are on our way and anything is possible. Lets hope that Mike Tomlin and the Pittsburgh Steelers keep their eyes on the road and their hands upon the wheel and our next destination is another Super bowl championship! So buckle up Steeler Nation and enjoy the ride! The drive for 7 is about to begin!
