Life is like the Turkey Bowl (aka Mud Bowl)

First, you have your plan...
...then you run like crazy to implement that plan,
                             (yup, that'd be my nephew with the ball!)
                      may even feel a little confident,
                               raise up your hand, volunteer, get
                              ...then, before you know it, you're down
                              on the ground, ball in hand(just minding
                              your own business...doin' your job.)
                              Then this guy is standing over you, throwing
                              mud in your face, (taunting you), talkin'
                              'bout your Mama!  Anything to get you
                              off your game... to doubt, question, wonder. 
                              "Can I do it?  Do I got what it takes?"
                              Then things pile up.
                               The competition keeps chasing you...
                              you fall on your face a few times...
                              people are pullin' at you...
                              literally jumping on your back!
                              Then football (like life) has a way of
                              gettin' you all dirty and bringing you
                              to your knees!
                              So you sit in the back of your truck
                              and take a break.  Reflect.
                              But at the end of the game (at the end of
                              your life) were still part of a team.
                              A team filled with other muddy, messed
                              up people, in need of a really good coach!
                              Then... no matter how hard it got, how
                              achy you feel, how muddy you look...
                              you get up and do it again! (Silly boys!)

Whose coaching your team?
1 Corinthians 9:25  "All athletes are disciplined in their training.  They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize."
