Today, I woke up and saw a clip of news on TV about the NFL game between quarterback brothers – Peyton and Eli ! The announcer interviewed the parents – Archie and Olivia Manning! It was fascinating to realize that how odd an occurrence (one in a zillion chance) of having three Super Quarterbacks from one family! We all know about Peyton playing for Colts and Eli for Giants are the quarterbacks who have already won the Superbowl! But I do remember that Archie was the quarterback playing for New Orléans in 70s and he was recognized as one of the best quarterback of that decade! Now we may be awed by the brilliance and luck that make them successful in such a competitive and high pressure field, but it would be fascinating to realize the talents of Olivia who provided the inspiration to her husband and nurturing love for her sons to become so successful! We do have to wonder, what these four souls would have done to connect in this life and be a part of one family! I am sure we all would watch the game tonight, but we would be watching an inspiring event of a family with 4 equally talented members!
