Life as a sporting event

Life can throw some wicked curve balls, but striking out doesn’t mean that you have to forfeit the game. If everyone hit a home run every time they were up to bat, then no one would ever be able to learn from their mistakes.

In my opinion, you need to learn to play both offense and defense. If you don’t play both, you’re no good to the team. That’s what’s so great about baseball, soccer (the true football), and, most especially, basketball. If you don’t play offense and defense, no one wants to hire you. There’s nothing wrong with being better at one than the other; in fact, being human, we are all going to be better at one than the other. It’s our nature. That being said, if you can’t understand the defense, how can you really be good enough to offensively score? And, if you can’t understand the offense, how can you defensively block it? And how can you understand a position which you cannot play?

Now, I realize that, being a band nerd, I am not going to have all of the technical terms down when it comes to sports. Trust me, I know there are probably blunders in my phraseology and who knows what else above. However, the point remains the same. Even the Bible compares life to a sport: a race, to be specific. If you aren’t in it to win, then what’s the point of running in it? On the other hand, who said that the prize wasn’t worth the fight?

I”ve said this once before, and I’ll say it again: If you look for flaws, you’re gonna find them. It’s that simple. But that’s okay because, being human, everyone has fleas…I mean, flaws.
