But Brady, who had looked a pale imitation of himself for much of the game, suddenly fired into life in the second half to produce a performance that will go into National Football League folklore.

They had appeared to be roaring to the championship with quarterback Matt Ryan pulling apart the Patriots in the first half. The Falcons scored touchdowns through Devonta Freeman and Austin Hooper before Robert Alford picked off Brady for an 82-yard interception score. The Patriots could only muster a Stephen Gostkowski field goal to go into halftime 21-3 down.

Ponyboy vouches for his brother’s character stating that Darry “had been a real popular guy in school; he was captain of the football team and he had been voted Boy of the year”, but goes on to lament that at this point in the story he “didn’t have time between jobs to even think about college”(16). Given Darry’s accomplishments, it is clear that he would have been a fantastic student and would have made his parents proud. Coming from a working class background, he would very likely have been the first person in his family to go to college, serving a role model for his younger brothers. Despite his parent 's death, Darry could have forgone his responsibilities, since he is an adult and still attend college, leaving his brothers to survive on their own in foster care, or a boys’ home.

The Adventure is finished with Aunt Sally adopting Huck, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a pot of gold at the end of this adventure.

Think of your favorite sport and imagine a game where one team was losing (the most recent Super Bowl springs to mind) and managed to overcome a large deficit to take the win. Momentum sparks confidence, so despite being on the losing end, a spark of momentum reinforces the idea that they may be down, but they’re certainly not out. That confidence then carries the team through the rest of the game, and sparks the comeback. We’ve seen it time and time again, and it probably has happened to you personally. Have you ever felt under the gun as you worked to meet a deadline?

Levido added the extras for the Bears to lead 10-2 after 27 minutes. North Sydney were well on top making strong metres up the middle, which allowed the backs plenty of room on the edges. A nicely weighted cross kick from Levido was marked by Burgess in the corner for the Englishman’s second of the day.
