Shaun Phillips gets loving text from son after SB loss (Photo)

Get ready to say “D’awwww!”

Following the Broncos’ blowout loss to the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII, Denver defensive end Shaun Phillips shared on Twitter a touching text message exchange he had with his son, Jaylen.

It’s completely understandable for players to be heartbroken after such a tough defeat on the NFL’s biggest stage. But Phillips reminds us that it’s still, at its root, only a game. There are many other, more important things to celebrate and cherish in life.
