Top of Mind Thursday October 30, 2014: A Giant Leap Forward

Top of Mind Thursday
They said it couldn’t be done. The visiting team just doesn’t win the 7th game of the World Series.

The sports media and pundits said the Kansas City Royals were the team of destiny, and after Tuesday’s game, it looked like that might be so.

But no one bothered to tell that to the San Francisco Giants. No one told them they couldn’t win with a roster riddled with injuries. No one told Madison Bumgarner he couldn’t throw 5 shutout innings three days after a complete game shutout.  It went down to the last batter in the bottom of the ninth, but the Giants pulled it out to win their 3rd World Series in five years.

Imagine what you can do when you don’t believe the naysayers. Look what you can do when you don’t stop believing…when you never lose sight of the goal.
