Same Story…Different Actors

4Martin40 years ago today was one of those moments.   58-57 was the final score.  We had beaten the opposing team twice that year, once by over 25 points.  But this time despite a rush at the end we came up short.  The career was over in an instant.  All these years later that one moment in time stays etched in my memory.  What if?

Last night, the same high school entered the same game and the final score was 45-44 and once again they were on the losing side.  Same exact story, same theater, different actors.  In that moment, I thought my life was over.  But the sun came up the next day and has ever since.  I feel for the young men today that are enduring the disappointment.  Good news, the sun will come up again tomorrow.
