Are you ready for your Super Bowl?

I’m submitting this in the spirit of the football playoffs, which began this past weekend. Some of you may appreciate it and others not so much, but there is a point to be made here.

Every team has an offense and a defense — every team meets on a practice field to do the drills needed to prepare for game days from August until January. They lift weights, run, block, tackle and do all the things they need to do to beat the team they will face on that next weekend. They all play for the chance to make the big game: The Super Bowl.

Yes they all train, they are all coached and they all put their game faces on and talk smack right up to the time they kick the ball down the field and it is on for 60 minutes. One team wins one team loses.

Only the best of the best get there and when the two teams come to play that most popular day for all NFL fans and players, one team wins and gets a ring, the other goes home with nothing (well, OK, they get well-paid but no championship rings).

In LE you too may have your chance at the Super Bowl someday. Will you be prepared, will you be the winner? You won’t get a ring, but you may get to go home.

Think about it. Stay trained, stay prepared, and most of all stay safe.
