Since everything in my life revolves around sports (Job, hobbies, free time) it has become a parallel to a game itself. There are so many realities in sports that emulate people's lives that this should surprise no one. As cliche as it may be, we all play the game of life. For me, life is like a game of baseball in the top of the third inning. So far enough has happened where I can see what I need to do to win, but nowhere nearly enough to see the final score. I know that I’m leading my opponent, but not by enough to be comfortable. That’s why nothing gets taken for granted. No lead, no time, nothing. Everything so far has put me where I am and cannot be changed. Like giving up a homerun, the past must be forgotten for the future to be successful.
