I left work at 4:40pm on Monday to get a jump on the traffic, but I forgot about the BCS championship game that evening. Everybody else also left work a few minutes early to catch the game and the traffic was terrible. It took me twice as long as usual to get home. I am not much of a football fan, but this is a pretty big deal in Oregon. I only saw part of the game after dinner, but it was the most exiting part.
This is Auburn’s Michael Dyer game winning run from ESPN on Youtube.
You gotta give the kid credit for keeping his knees up and never giving up on the play. Look at the replay again, he kept his knees up by instinct while keeping hold of the ball. This is not luck, it is from years of practice. Well, there was a lot of luck, but skill also played a big part. When he got up he wasn’t sure if the play was over, but he must have had some doubt and kept an eye out for the opportunity to run. Oregon defense should have stayed in the game and made sure the play was over instead of just standing around.
How is this related to retiring by 40? Let’s just say we’ll take a lesson from this play to keep rushing forward to early retirement and never giving up! Good job Michael!
