The PRE-SEASON Has Begun!!!

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

The PRE-SEASON has begun and boy am I getting hit hard from all sides. I just got the line-up of teams that I will be facing and there are some heavy hitters. I have also been told that there will be other teams that come along too as they add to the season.

The difference between regular football and the "football" that I am playing is that I could face several teams at once. Some of these teams are able to make player trades at a moments notice in order to beef up their team against me.

Some of the teams already on the list:

Temptation

Sabotage

Gluttony

Fear

Deceit

Hubris

Failure

Excuses

Slovenly

Laziness

Procrastination

Complacency

Envy

Doubt

And the dreaded FAST FOOD team!

So I have to get my "team" at tip top performance. Who do I have on my "team"? Well there is PRAYER, FAITH, Nutrition Tracker, Fitness Tracker, Freggies, Water, Positive Affirmations, Spark Friends, Sleep, Cardio, Strength Training and others. My "team" is going to have to step up and be ready because if the beginning of this pre-season is any indication of what they are bringing to the table, I have my work cut out for me!

There are some players that I need to recruit. They are confidence, persistence, and determination. They have been hanging out at the field but they haven't joined my team. I need them!!

As you can see, the season will be no joke! I will have to step up my game. I will have to DO WORK! I can't sit back and wish to get through the game. They are already kicking my butt and unfortunately my "team" mates have not worked out enough to be ready for the game and I have tried to do it alone. Not a good plan. I have to utilize all the talent of my team members to get through the game. It is going to take everything we have got!


GAME ON!!! emoticon emoticon

    Play to win. Your team is ready. I see determination in you. You can and will do this.
Get your game face on and do the best you can. The other teams they can and will be
eliminated. Push forward

    I love everything you said here. Okay, that's no surprise cuz I always love everything you say, but I do! I think it's great that you not only have your team, and are going to try to get everyone working together to make one strong unit, but you also have some that you want to recruit. You know what an asset they would be to your team, and I know you are going to push until they get on your team and start working with you! emoticon emoticon emoticon
