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

Top of Mind Thursday

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.

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.
