This tuque has 4 panels, unlike the CANADIANA tuque blogged about yesterday that had 5 panels. Due to the panel print of this fleece of the Denver Broncos, though, I had to make it in 12 pieces to get a design I liked, not 3 pieces like yesterday’s tuque, even though it could have been done with 1 piece as shown below. It doesn’t quite match the BRONCOS fleece jacket I made a few years back, due to me not having any of that fleece left, but it’ll still look cool together.
For the opening of the 2015 Thursday Night Football season with the Denver Broncos visiting the Kansas City Chiefs, there was an inspirational 1 minute 42 second speech by Forest Whitaker shown below. The video works if you play it on YouTube. The NFL just made it inconvenient for us not to show it when embedded in WordPress.
I’ve taken the time to write out the text below (as well as put it in a JPG) because even more inspirational than listening to an inspirational speech, is reciting it aloud yourself! If you’re even keener, practice it so you recite it better than just reading it aloud first time around.
It’s empowering as well as inspirational, and it works whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, doing it by yourself or to friends or family. The latter might actually benefit from hearing any inspirational speech you choose to recite if they had not heard it before, or even just hearing it from someone they know!
You don’t have to do it in the same style as the orator. Actually, I would encourage you put your own style to it! Make it yours! Go for it!
The Thursday Night Football speech text is below.
p.s. This video seemed to have also been a premonition. The kid fumbles the ball during tackle practice. Then he goes on to wear a Jamaal Charles jersey to the game. And what happened? Jamaal Charles fumbled the ball twice to cost his team the game (and he said that, not me blaming him). And now, Jamaal Charles could probably use this speech more than anybody else! I’m a Broncos and Peyton Manning fan, but I wish Jamaal all the best on the road back. Go for that feeling, man!
Happy Chinese New Year everybody!
Or Happy Asian New Year if you prefer!
It is the year of the Horse, Wooden Horse if you want to be more specific. Below are some predictions for the Chinese Year of the Wooden Horse that will cover most of the 2014 Roman calendar year. That’s aside from the Denver Broncos winning the Super Bowl in a few days, of course, with the team symbol being that of a horse. 🙂
