Don’t fumble your self image
February 6, 2014
One day the world wanted to shake his hand, and the next day they could only shake their heads. I don’t think I have ever seen a sports figure go from celebrated to scorned as quickly as Peyton Manning did after the Super Bowl Game. I am not a football fan, but I did watch some of the Sunday night game, mainly for the food. And from my ignorant perspective, it seemed that Peyton went downhill right after blowing it on the first play. It wasn’t that he became less of a player, but almost as if he started seeing himself as less of a player.
Peyton Manning is a five time MVP in the game, and yet after that first mistake he didn’t seem to play like a MVP. Instead, it seemed as if he defined himself by that one play.
