Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Chris Longo.
After the Colts beat the Bears in the 2007 Super Bowl in the sometimes pouring rain, Bears quarterback, Rex Grossman supposedly asked Peyton Manning how he was able to throw in such terrible conditions. Do you know what Manning’s secret was?
He practiced “wet snaps” the week before. He basically soaked a bunch of footballs in a big bucket of water and had someone snap the ball to him and he practiced receiving and throwing wet footballs. Now that’s preparation.
Most people hate playing in poor conditions like rain, wind, sun, extreme heat or cold, but the great ones actually practice under those conditions and when it actually happens they have a major advantage.
So take it from the Super Bowl champ…practice different scenarios so that you’re prepared for anything.
Thanks for reading.
