On December 2007 Tom Brady gave an interview to 60 Minutes. During this clip―and it’s hard to determine the context―Brady makes the following statement:
“Why do I have three Super Bowl rings and still think there’s something greater out there for me? I mean, maybe a lot of people would say, ‘Hey man, this is what is.’ I reached my goal, my dream, my life. I think, ‘God, it’s got to be more than this.’ I mean this isn’t, this can’t be what it’s all cracked up to be … I love playing football and I love being quarterback for this team. But at the same time, I think there are a lot of other parts about me that I’m trying to find.”
We love to create and depend on idols. By the time we get rid of one, 5 more seem to pop up. Anything outside of God will leave us empty, even the greatest sporting achievements.
