After watching the Superbowl today I realized something that no one likes. When you pick a team and you put your heart and faith into that team to win for you then you don't want to lose. The worst part is when your team does lose and you become disappointed, you find other people rubbing it in saying how bad you lost. My favorite team lost in the playoffs to the team that would end up as the champions tonight, so I picked the Giants even thought they beat my team. I don't want to be the one to rub it in to my friends who like the Patriots because I'm not really a big Giants fan anyways, but here is something I want to relate this to. When you are faced with a life threatening diseases such as cancer, you are always going to be the underdog. You will fight will all that you have, but you already know that you are playing a game against a proven champion who has won to many times. I try to avoid being a bandwagon fan because you can often miss out out some of the great victories like Tim Tebow's first playoff game. Tonight as you celebrate or mourn, please remember our kids fighting cancer and give them all of your heart and soul even thought there will often be defeat.
