The Big Game.

The elusive ‘big game’ is pursued in every field. Reaching the ‘big game’ in whatever you do takes a ‪#‎process that usually looks like and feels like hell. You have to go through hell to get to any ‘big game’ and then some more hell to win it.

Getting to the big game is why you play the game. The big game is the reward. The big game is a Sacred Memory that pushes its’ way past all the ordinary memories that fade away or become victim of the delete button as quick as they happen. The hunger for the big game emerges from the hunger for the Sacred Memory, that moment that beats the rest – dual meaning. That beats the rest of the average, uneventful, run-of-the-mill moments that fly by without giving them a second and beats the rest of sitting on your ass, parked and idling, watching all of it pass by – time, opportunities, and competitors.

Thank you to two semi-pro players who refused to retire when the experts told them their careers were over. Quarterback Tom Denison of the G.T.A. All-stars football team in Toronto and running back T.J. Williams of the Ottawa Invaders football team were guests on a special edition of Blunt Talk Podcast to preview the Northern Football Conference championship game. They share insights that you won’t hear anywhere else. Here is the link to Blunt Talk Podcast:
