why not great?

February 4, 2014

if you’re anything like my 10th grade advisees this morning, you’re going to roll your eyes when you read what i have to say next.  why not you?

i must be the most uncool person in the world (again, ask my advisees) but i hadn’t heard this russell wilson quote until my mom typed it in an email to me yesterday.  according to an interview in the seattle times, it goes a little something like this:

“i told them a story my dad used to tell me,” wilson said. “he always used to tell or tap me driving in the car and say, ‘russ, why not you? why can’t you be a world champion or whatever you want to be?’ ”

he wasn’t supposed to be great.  he’s supposed to be too small and the sixth best quarterback, according to the nfl standards and the draft.  but he was great.  he is great.  and his dad’s quote is great.
