SUPERBOWL SUNDAY AND WHY I’M ROOTING FOR KURT WARNER

Filed under: Sports Heroes — Rich Davis @ 2:49 pm

UPDATE: Arizona was robbed!  The refs should have reviewed the final play, Warner’s arm was going forward when the ball came out of his hand.  It should have been an incomplete pass and not a fumble (which Pittsburg recovered with just 5 seconds left).   It’s a disgrace that the refs refused to review the play. In addition to that play, there we numerous suspect penalties called against Arizona which stiffled many drives.   Warner played great, Fitzgerald played great.  And I lost all respect for Pittsburg’s #92 Harrison, he’s a thug that repeatedly punched a Cardinal player well away from the play.  He was penalized, but he should have been arrested for mugging.  Also, Harrison looks like he’s on steroids, did you see the size of his head?   Warner and Arizona deserved better, the refs should be ashamed of themselves for cheating the fans of America.

Kurt Warner is the 37-year old quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals.  This is his 3rd trip to the Super Bowl.  He is the underdog today.  A lot of people remember that he was stocking shelves in a grocery store when he revitalized his football career in the Arena Football league about 15 years ago.

Kurt is very spiritual, a Christian man who is not ashamed to gives thanks and praise to the Lord.

Here’s his bio from the Arizona Cardinals website:  Kurtis Eugene Warner … he and his wife, Brenda, have seven children: sons Zachary, Kade and Elijah and daughters Jesse, Jada and twins Sienna and Sierra …  attended Cedar Rapids Regis High in Iowa, where he lettered in football, basketball and baseball …  established the First Things First Foundation in the spring of 2001 with wife Brenda to promote Christian values and bless the lives of those less fortunate with projects such as trips to Disney World for ill children, building recreation centers in children’s hospitals, helping single moms achieve the dream of homeownership and teaching Special Olympians the football basics. All projects are centered on Kurt and Brenda’s life theme: faith and family come first … official website is www.kurtwarner.org.

Also, I like Larry Fitzgerald, #11, his outstanding receiver. He doesn’t showboat or taunt.  Just makes plays and hustles back to the huddle.  Did you know he went to Valley Forge Military Academy?  Yep, explains his classy character and good sportsmanship.

Go Cardinals!
