Life and Football

Have you ever thought about, or even noticed the similarities between life and football? If you take a moment to really think about it, they are more alike than you have probably ever noticed at first glance.

It starts with the introduction of two teams, your mother and father. A little while later comes you, and just like the coin toss, you are either male or female. Also just like the toss of the coin, both are completely out of anyone’s control. Then the game begins.

Each choice you make is like a play on the field. Sometimes you make the right call and move forward, other times you make the wrong one and move backwards. Either way, you just have to do your best and keep trying to move forward towards your goal(s). There will also be times that you have to punt and just start over.

Like the season, you will have many times to play this game over and over in many different locations and many different situations and conditions. Each time you do, you just have to do the best that you can at the time in each situation, or game, that you may face.There aren’t any winners or losers in the end however. By the time the game of life is over,you just have to hope that you have more good choices(wins) than bad(loses) on your record.

So, if you think about it, the two are really more similar than you would probably think. My advice to you is to just play the game of life to the best of your ability, have fun, and just hope for the best possible outcome.

Oh, and play like a champion every day!!
