These past two weeks have marked the beginning of a great tradition in the United States. The 2016 Football Season is upon us, and members of our office are celebrating with vigor. They have formed and joined several Fantasy Football Leagues for the national games, and many vehicles are being decorated with the logos of local collegiate teams.
Most popular in our office are supporters of both the Cleveland Browns and the Cincinnati Bengals. Those in support of the Browns have all lived in Cleveland at one point or another and understand the importance of rooting for the brown and orange. While past seasons have been riddled with uncontrollables, this has never deterred loyal fans.
In our office, we understand that if we gave up because of these uncontrollable consequences in our everyday lives, we would never see our own success, or anyone else’s. Instead, we must continue to fight another day, week, or in the case of the Browns, another season.
While members of our office come from a diverse background of collegiate teams, most agree to the mutual support of the Ohio State Buckeyes. As the 2015 National Champions, and the second largest school in the nation, OSU has an incredibly large fan base that is looking forward to them being back to back champions. Coached by University of Cincinnati graduate and former UC defensive linebacker, Urban Meyer, the Buckeyes are expected to have a successful season. However, our office also agrees that you should not ‘let your guard down’ after an initial success. Rather, you must put in the same effort you put in last time, so you can be just as successful this time.
As the competition heats up, and football rivalries become prevalent, we encourage everyone to support and encourage their respective teams to play with as much strength as they can. Having that support system, a consistent positive mentality, and the drive to succeed is why everyone in our office sees success. Let that be the reason your teams, particularly the Cleveland Browns and the OSU Buckeyes, be champions.
