In just a few hours, we will be glued to the TV watching the KC Chiefs play the Indianapolis Colts in the playoff game.
The Chiefs have had their problems on defense this year, but we have been dazzled by the play of our new, young, quarterback – Patrick Mahomes! He’s been setting team and league records all season. If I was to choose one individual that personifies DETERMINATION – it would be him!
The clip above is from a game earlier in the season – watch as he scrambles, comes close to being tackled, but manages to complete the pass – incredibly, he switched from his right to his left hand in order to make the play! DETERMINATION! The Chiefs were behind – just over three minutes to go – he had to make this play to keep the game alive. He wasn’t going to stop until he succeeded – And. He. Did!
The Chiefs went on to win that game 27-23, ended the year as AFC West champions with a 12-4 record, and were just danged fun to watch! Mahomes is a solid leader on the field, and becoming a beloved, involved member of the Kansas City community. At just 23 years of age, he’s got a great career ahead of him – and he’s cute, to boot!
Yes, I know it’s “Kindness” week, but I’m DETERMINED that you should see this guy in action. I hope you have that chance! Go Chiefs!
