that quote tells you all you need to know why Eli and his family wanted him to play for the Giants and why the kid is a success. I can only imagine that Peyton follows the same credo. Actaully that sentiment can be held to any "effort" you have in life to dowell in any field. </P>

I'm from the first generation that grew up with television as as a normal thing to have in the house and the devil pot hit in Mississippi just as I was finishing high school............I won't be playing with Weatherford in the ******* Super Bowl, either.
