A Life Well-Earned
NFL players give more than most people understand. The average onlooker sees a bunch of guys playing a kids game, running around throwing a ball and wearing cool uniforms. They see the money and the glamour and they turn green with envy. Many think these guys don’t deserve the lives they are able to live.
What few people understand is that these guys pay for these luxurious lifestyles with more than just money. They pay with their pain, their blood, their sweat and sometimes they even shave years off of their lives by playing the ultra-violent game that pays them so well.
So instead of resenting them for the money they have, let’s take a moment to celebrate the sacrifices they make every day, so that we can all watch them play the greatest game in the world every Sunday. When they are done battling in the arena for our entertainment, they have some pretty sweet places to crash and get some much needed rest.
