Go Seahawks!

Today's the big day. Super Bowl Sunday! I hope you all enjoy the game and be careful. Don't drink and drive, and if you do have too much to drink, make sure to have a friend take you home or call a cab.

I hope the game is a good one and not a blowout by either team. But, I do hope the Seattle Seahawks win the game. It's their first Super Bowl in the team's history, and having graduated from the University of Alabama, I am a huge Shaun Alexander fan. If you didn't know, Shaun led the league in regular season total rushing yards and he led the league in total touchdowns.

What's even more impressive about Shaun is his foundation, the Shaun Alexander Foundation. The foundation's mission is to "empower young men through education, athletics, character programs, and leadership training; inspiring them to reach their full potential as the mentors and role models for the next generation."

Want to read a story about the true Shaun? Check out this article written a couple of years ago from

Also, do you have children? If you do, you might want to check out Alexander the Great, a children's story chronicling the athletic and academic journey to success of Shaun. The story shares a terrific lesson in rhyme and part of the proceeds go to Shaun's foundation.

Good luck and make it a great day today Shaun! Make Bama proud!
