I owe almost everything to football, which I spent the greater part of my life in, and I have never lost my respect, my admiration nor my love for what I consider a great game. Each Sunday after the battle, one group savors victory, another group wallows in the bitterness of defeat. The many hurts seem a small price to pay for having won and there is no reason at all which is adequate for having lost.
For the winner there is 100 percent elation, 100 percent laughter, 100 percent fun and for the loser the only thing left is a 100 percent resolution and 100 percent determination. The game, I think, is a great deal like life. Every man makes his own personal commitment toward excellence and toward victory. Although you know ultimate victory can never be completely won, it must be pursed with all of one’s might and each week there is a new encounter, each year a new challenge.
All of the rings and all of the money and all of the color and all of the display, they linger only in a memory. But the spirit, the will to win, the will to excel, these are the things that endure and these are the qualities, of course, that are so much more important than any of the events that occur.
I’d like to say that the quality of any man’s life is a full measure of that man’s personal commitment to excellence and to victory, regardless of what field he may be in.
