Tough Times Make Tough People
The cold was intense, the snow, relentless. The wind whipped across the field creating near zero visibility conditions. And yet the boys played on.
But not my kid.
My kid played every down and when it was over, he played game #2.
All told, Monster Monkey and company played four games during the historic snowy weekend. He never cried, he never complained, he never quit.
The Smurf Polar Bears did not win the Superbowl, they didn't even come in second, but they are champs in my book just for playing.
There are many times in my life when it was my father's voice in my head that kept me moving forward in an effort to prove myself tough.
"Come on kid, are you a Coffman, or what?"
