Cranks My Tractor

The other two tickets were given to a man and his son from Daphne, Alabama.  We watched folks walk up to them and the daddy just kept shaking his head “no.”  I asked the little boy how old he was and he said, “Twelve.”  I said, “Someday you are going to be old like me and I want you to do something nice for someone.” 

The little boy just smiled.

The game was great.  Well, if you were an Alabama fan, it was great.  The Tennessee folks around us were nice, as were the Alabama fans.

So, The Process does not belong to Nick Saban, it can and should belong to all of us.  It involves working hard, helping people reach their goals (and find their tickets), being kind and generous and raising a family that thinks the same way.
