After the Denver Bronco’s big defeat in SuperBowl XLVIII, Bronco’s defensive end Shaun Phillips was feeling a bit down. He knew the fans as well as his family would be disappointed so he sent an apologetic text to one of his sons. Phillips told his son, “Sorry, I let you down.” Rather than jumping on the feelings of disappointment, his son sent a message back saying, ”It’s ok daddy u r still my hero.” Then Phillips replied, “Well at least we get to hang out now.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
