Bury Him Where?

Rick Majerus

The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team plays against Utah in Las Vegas tonight. Looking forward to the game, someone dug up a quote from former Utah coach Rick Majerus, who passed away seven years ago. Majerus, who was 0-6 in his career against Kentucky, once said, “When I die they might as well bury me at the finish line at Churchill Downs so they can run over me one more time.”

Sometimes life doesn’t go the way we planned. It’s good to be able to keep our sense of humor as we accept a difficult outcome and move on.

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”—1 Corinthians 15:58.
