Inspiration Everywhere: Nick Chubb, Running Back, Cleveland Browns Football Team

Baller. Grinder. Fun to watch. Brings it on every down. Inspired player.

Pretty quick, all these thoughts came rushing in when I watched the Cleveland Browns game Sunday night.

Nick Chubb was inspiring, the way he ran. And it came to mind, gotta share that simple thought: be inspired by the simplest of things.

I mean, I’m not a huge sports fan; and in football I’m really a San Francisco Forty Niners fan, having grown up and still living just down the road in San Jose.

But Chubb inspired, so I’m sharing it, it’s that simple. Allow yourself to be inspired.

  1. I’m not a football or any sport’s fan, except once in a while tennis!, the idea of closed head injuries at any age, and the senseless violence turn me way off. But my 95-year old father (at the time, recently widowed) came to visit us, and wanted to see the Harvard-Syracuse football game and also the Bolshoi Ballet (in the same week). We had good seats (VERY cold) and I watched and narrated a run for touchdown (probably the Qback) nearly the whole length of the field. I cheered as loud as the other fans, but my father couldn’t see well enough to get the most out of it (sitting on cold concrete didn’t help either). The same was true with the ballet — too far back, blocked by rows in front of him, but the music in always beautiful, the venue luxurious, the crowds elegantly dressed, so he had a good time even though the music wasn’t the Dixieland he loved. He lived on in his home of 50+ years of marriage, gradually losing what was left of his vision, mobility, appetite, memory, not knowing where he was or who I was (I realized he imagined I was his younger brother and we were both in our teens. Something to think about elsewhere.)
    Three years of decline to Shakespeare’s old man: sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans… everything. His life was a lesson to me in savoring the small moments, which was your focus, I think, way back when I started this comment. Thanks for reading, thanks for your always inspiriting thoughts.

    1. Wow! What a great memory and insight you’ve shared. Thanks for opening up with that, very…special. May I take that piece and share it in a fresh post. Tender, precious recollection; I’d be honored to share it. Thanks for considering either way. : – )
