Post B week 1

A quote that I pulled form this section would be:
“Everyone in the Tampa viewing area would have multiple opportunities to see Tony Dungy, former head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, placing boxes into his SUV in the pouring rain”(6). This gave me a sense that he was in a way wounded or powerless now, the rain also contributed to that feeling, and he describes the people as if they want to see him this way. As the section goes on, He tells what it was like growing up a Dungy. A quote I pulled from this section was:
“Growing up in Jackson, to my way of thinking, was the way growing up was meant to be” (7). This gave me a sense of how Tony felt about his childhood. It goes on and talks about how much he loved where he grew up, and that he loved even more that he got to coach near by, in Tampa Bay. Something I really like about this book is that at the beginning of each chapter he puts a quote from someone on the first page. I think this is interesting because I wonder what prompted him to do that, and I concluded that maybe because some of these quotes changed his life.
