A Good Quote Badly Quoted

I read a great quote last week.  It was by legendary NFL coach Vince Lombardi, and it spoke of determination and grit.  When you read it, you’ll probably think, “I’ve heard a hundred like that one,” and you likely have.  It’s still a great thought to absorb.

However, somewhere between reading it and remembering it and reciting it, one word got added in my head.  When I spoke it out loud to myself, all I could do was roll my eyes and smile.  And desperate as I was for a new blog post, well, here I am.

Here’s the quote, plus one word that doesn’t belong…

“It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get knocked up.”

I’m not convinced that THIS version is going to catch on… and that’s likely a good thing!
