My husband and I watched the Colts/Jaguars football game Sunday afternoon. (big Peyton Manning fan here!) During the first quarter there were three challenges to the officials’ calls. Most games don’t even have one, but three during the first quarter seemed unusual.

A challenge can be made if the coach disagrees with a call. If the call is reversed, then it’s good for the challengers. If it stands, the challenging coach loses a time out in addition to whatever disadvantage the call imposed

How cool would it be is we could have challenges… do-overs and take-backs… in life?

Something happens that you think should have had a different outcome, and you can ask for a review of the event. If there’s a ruling that the event was totally unfair, you get a do-over. If the review shows you messed up and the whole thing was your fault, you have to live with the consequences, or worse.

As a kid, I would have used that flag like a missile. I would have been throwing it every time I turned around. As I got into high school and college, I did some really stupid stuff, but I knew what I was doing when I did it. I would have lost the overwhelming majority of any challenges.

As a wife and mother, I’m probably the reason for other flags to be flying. I would win a few, lose a few…

How much more careful would we be about our own actions, or less likely to set blame to someone else, if our life was reviewed by a set of field officials?
