October 6, 2020 – National Coaches Day | National Mad Hatter Day
Who Is Your Favorite Coach Of All Time? It’s All About Celebrating The People Who Make A Difference!
Welcome to October 6, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate the role models who help us be our best and give us permission to go a little batty.
As coach of the Green Bay Packers, Vince Lombardi won the NFL championship 5 out of 7 years, including the first two Super Bowls. His coaching style not only transformed his team, but also the entire coaching profession. Every day, coaches around the world encourage people to be the best that they can be, whether it’s our sports career or even personal growth. These men and women lead people to strive for more both mentally and physically. On National Coaches Day we celebrate these leaders, both amateur and professional, who guide us through good times and bad and teach us to keep trying no matter the outcome. As Coach Lombardi said: It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.
In the middle of Alice’s trip through Wonderland, she stopped for a tea party hosted by the Hatter. Yes, that’s right. The character’s name isn’t the Mad Hatter, though that’s how we all know him. The phrase mad as a hatter was popular at the time and since the character was a bit crazy, the name stuck. As for the phrase itself, hat makers in the 1800s used mercury to manufacture felt hats. Prolonged exposure to this chemical led to mercury poisoning, which caused irritability, memory loss, and slurred speech…all of which applied to the fictional host of the tea party in Wonderland. On National Mad Hatter Day, bust out some silly hats and have yourself a spot of tea.
