Serendipity

On the anniversary of what was dubbed the greatest play in NFL history, Franco Harris was in the right spot at the right time. Luck right? Not at all.  That was a surreal serendipitous moment and being in the right place at times is just part of life at times.  It’s like Franco was riding a white stallion galloping into the sunset to secure the win and the end of a long drought and the start of the Steelers Super Bowl dominance.
 
That said, Franco was a dedicated athlete.  He was always prepared.  A friend of mine always said “Proper preparation prevents piss poor performance.”  Franco was always prepared and his sudden death prior to the fifty anniversary  was a sad but great moment to relive this story.  I was only in seventh grade at the time and still remember watching it with my dad. I’ve noticed a common thread with many of my friends who come prepared. They always seem to always be in a spot to seize the moment.  I love reliving these moments with my kids the way I used to experience things with my dad. Carpe Diem and Merry Christmas to all.The Immaculate Reception
