I just did something I've never done before. I watched the Daytona 500 race. (No, not at the track... I did it from the comfort of my sofa.) Before you think I've grown a rat's tail and started dipping Skoal, I not going redneck...it really was interesting. I'll have you know that it's the "Superbowl of racing." It's also the 3rd largest sporting event in the U.S.
Anyway... one of the commentators told an interesting story. Bill France and Junior Johnson, winner of the Daytona 500 in 1960, were having a conversation about being commited to a race. Junior's comment was...
"When you sit down to a breakfast of bacon and eggs; the chicken is dedicated, but the pig is commited."
What a great statement. :) Now that's what I call sacraficial giving.
