Three pointer to you Ray!

So what Walter Ray Allen shown me his entire career that practice and consistence will result in great performance.  Arguable the best pure shooter the NBA has to offer, and maybe we will ever see, has done the same pregame warm-up for 15years.  Showing up to the arena three hours before game time day in and night out, shoot I can’t even get to bed at the same time 15days in a row; I guess having two kids under  5years old would do that too you, think about that could you show up to work three hours early.  2,561 3-pointers made… and counting might not ever be broken.  And I thought that Reggie Miller, the New York Knick killer, had the best shoot until I saw Ray.  Now I have watched Ray Allen back when he was making game-winning shot against Allen Iverson and Georgetown in 1996 for the Big East Championship, and his shooting release looks the same. Talk about Déjà vu. I don’t think the record couldn’t have been broken against a better team the Los Angeles Lakers. We all know the Lakers-Celtics rich history so why not against them. 

Unlike most, who’s ever watched Ray play and only view him as a three point shooter.  I must refresh your memory Ray dunks!, him and Kobe went dunk for dunk in 97’s NBA All-Star Dunk contest; okay maybe not Ray, who finished fourth, but he has the midrange shot, however behind the 23 feet 9inch arc is where he ended up on most nights.  I recall in one interview Ray was asked if you had to compare your shot to a woman who would it be he said Halle Berry.  I guess even looking at Halle Berry doesn’t get old. His shot won’t either.  I would have said Sannaa Lathan.  Now that he’s in the fourth quarter of his career, who knows the number of three pointers he will continue to hit, but one thing is for certain every shot will look like the last one.  Perfect!  Throughout his 1,076, and counting, games played Ray Allen has shown us that kids, marriage, trades, tragedy, parenthood, life, life’s challenges made him more than a three pointer shooter.  Water Ray Allen here’s a 3-pointer to you for your approach on the game I love and life.  Until next time live out your DREAMS with some Determination, put forth Real Efforts and given your Abilities; Mean you will have Success.

If you would ask Aaron Rodgers how you spell closure he might say S-U-P-E-R B-O-W-L M-V-P! After an outstanding performance in Super Bowl XLV in Dallas against Pittsburgh Steelers there shouldn’t be much more talk about a Brett Lorenzo Favre for some time now if you ask me. I might be reaching a little bit by saying Bart Starr “Mr. Rodgers” might be moving into your neighborhood very, very soon as the Packers greatest QB-barring no major injuries. Let’s, ask General Manager Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy how you spell closure too, they might say A-a-R-O-N R-O-D-G-E-R-S. Those two are smiling from Arlington to Green Bay, and I don’t blame them. With Rodgers three touchdowns and 304 yards passing his name will be the second in Packers history to be named MVP of the biggest football game the National Football League has to offer. That is something a particular number 4 will never do! The road to Super Bowl MVP wasn’t easy. Drafted 24th overall in 2005 by the Packers seating behind Favre for three years, and coming up short in a few times during the playoffs only makes Sundays victory much more rewarding. Look at what Rodgers did this playoff season over one thousand yards passing and nine touchdowns. That has only been done once before by Kurt Warner. Not even Joe Montana, Tom Brady, or Payton Manning accomplished those numbers.

Can anyone tell me where the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Troy Polamalu was? He was a non-factor throughout the game. I hope that Polamalu don’t use his Achilles tendon injury as a way to escape from his lack of involvement in Sundays game. No lifelines here sorry. At least Greg Jennings, who score both of his touchdowns against Polamalu, wasn’t about to give any lifelines too him. So much for who’s hair, Polamalus’ or Clay Matthews’, would provide more strength in Super Bowl XLV. Clay Matthews came up with arguably the biggest play of the game with the force fumble on Rashard Mendenhall. While Polamalu guessed wrong with his aggressive play.  

Now can we all please put to rest the talk about Super Bowl experience having meaning? It should never be mention again after this year Super Bowl. Thank you Green Bay Packers. The team with the most championship experience committed three costly turnovers which end result was 21 Packers points. It’s all about playing in the moment and the Packers did just that!

So Rodgers, Ted Thompson, nor McCarthy might never win a spelling bee contest however, they showed you, me, and the world how to win a Super Bowl Championship. Go Pack Go! Until next time live out your DREAMS with some Determination, put forth Real Efforts and given your Abilities; Mean you will have Success.
