Back Of The Jersey To You

January 17, 2013

Moss[Written by Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes] [Inspired by Randy Moss] [Photo by Huffing Post]

The UK is famous for saying, ‘top of the morning to you.” The National Football League fans have a new saying with “Back Of The Jersey To You.” They say it because that is what they see every time Randy Moss scores a touchdown. Randy Moss  Hall of Fame career does all of the talking for him. Here are things you won’t see Moss do for a touchdown celebration.

1. No River Dance like Chad Johnson.

2. No Cha Cha like Victor Cruz.

3. No Dunking like Tony Gonzalez.

4. No Discount Double Check  like Aaron Rodgers.

5. No spiking like people that never score.

6. No spinning just for a first down.

7. No popcorn like T.O.

8. No Tebowing like Tim Tebow.

End zone entertainment is fun but Moss is at a point in his career with statistics that leaves you simply in awe where all he does now is score, hand the ball to the referee and point to his name that shouts, “Back Of the Jersey to You.”

In Proverbs 22:1 it says  “A good name is more desirable than great riches.” The name Moss signifies that something is coming your way, people know it and still can’t stop you.

Since we may never know when another Randy Moss will come our way again, win or lose I would like to see him go deep for a touchdown in the Georgia Dome against the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship, hand the ball to the referee and right after that point to his name so I can say this with the others millions of fans watching from home, “Back Of The Jersey To You.”

Today’s word is Chosen

September 3, 2012

There is a popular bible verse that says many are called but few are chosen. Competition is less because many choose not to accept their calling. What have you been chosen for?

Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes inspired Motivation Your Mobile to bring an original quote daily to Android and I Phone users.

Today’s word is Calling

June 14, 2012

Every time the phone rings you pick up. Do you answer to what you are called to do? A calling has a ring to it that never stops buzzing inside you. When people dial into your calling they never get a busy signal.

There’s More In STORE For You – Poem

January 26, 2012

Copyright 2011 © by Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes

I thought when I reached the mountain top

My dream would complete and suddenly stop

Even when I was called to the valley low

My passion spoke up with no no no

Opportunities get rushed

Dreams get crushed

People get flushed

Enough is enough

Think about what you say before you say

Do what’s right in order to make pay

Help others along the way

Even the ones that will not stay

Did deep with boots and shovel

Get ready to reach the next level

When it’s all said and done

Your arm will be raised and they’ll say you won

Never forget………….There’s More In STORE For You.
