“Am I Done?” | The Players’ Tribune

Football has been everything to me since I was 10 years old. For the past few months, all of that has been taken away.

I have been a fan of JJ Watt, since he came into the NFL, not so much because he is such a great player.

He is!

More because of how he seems to present himself and the obvious love of the sport he is so gifted at playing.

This article was a nice reminder that sometimes players do love the sport that they get paid so handsomely to play and I truly believe that JJ Watt is one of those that does love his sport.

What in the hell does this have to do with you or anyone else.

I am not in any way a gifted athlete (other than I am a stubborn old bastard), but I do fiercely love my sport – running in my own way, as much JJ Watt loves football. I keep coming back to it after surgery, numerous injuries and all the other stuff that I have endured to simply keep running over the past 40 plus years.

Now, if only I was as gifted at running, as he is at football, all would be right with the world.

hehehehe Yeah right!!!

Bennie’s View Down-back

from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2fO6rFT
We were running down-back and had just finished a Bennie stop. When before we got going again, he stood in the road and didn’t move, with his tail straight back. Over the years we have run together, when he does that, I stop and look around carefully – it usually means something is there he is either unsure of or that is a threat.
I looked and couldn’t see anything, so I kneeled down to get his perspective and grabbed my camera to document…whatever he was looking at?
I still don’t have a clue what he was so intently staring at, but a few seconds later, he stopped staring and tugged on the leash to get going in that direction.
So we did and I still don’t know what to hell he was looking at?
