I was watching the Rose Bowl yesterday from a hot air balloon, and could not believe the thoughts that were coming into my head.
Primarily, I was focused on the Allstate commercial with Dennis Haysbert - you may know him as the President from early seasons of the television program 24.
In one of my favorite versions of these advertisements, Haysbert says the following.
Things aren't as important as building ones you love.
That is a small bit of paraphrasing I have done with his words, but the point is easily relayed to Ohio State Coach Tim Jressel's post game interview.
When asked about the school's title chances next season, his answer was short and direct - he was going to honor and respect the team he is with right now, and enjoy the big win in the big game.
I like to think he is friends with Dennis Haysbert and that they are in a sauna nodding knowingly at each other right now, because they both "get it".
