There is nothing like game day.
Now that our team hasn’t had a game day in what seems like forever, I’m tempted to say I appreciate them more than I did before.
However, that’s not true. I’ve always appreciated the chance to show up for and with my team and see how it shakes out.
Being “ready” doesn’t equal winning.
Working the process doesn’t mean the better team will prevail.
Being shorthanded, committing to your culture or being a great communicator means something to the game, they say, but regardless, the game will need to be played.
The fact that the game is always there is something we could always count on. Injured? Graduated? Quit? It doesn’t matter, the game will go on without you. Love your team more than anyone before you? Nope, it’s not important.
Just. Show. Up. We HAVE to give everything, but the game guarantees nothing.
I’d love to have that gamble in front of me tomorrow.
