What an amazing day.
After two months of incredibly hard work and dedication, it all came down to today. Nobody knew how it would turn out. Sure, we speculated, but when it comes to the day, you never really know, do you? Would the dedicated athlete turn up -- game face on -- ready to meet the challenge? Would the preparation prove enough? Had we gone over all the scenarios? Who would come out victorious?
It's difficult for those who are only spectators to know what it takes to succeed. The commitment of time and energy. The lonely practice sessions, drilling the same things over and over again. An armchair quarterback may understand in theory the necessary sacrifices, but nobody truly knows unless they have walked that mile, made the hard choices, and put in the work. It might not be glamorous (and face it, it's not), but it's oh so necessary.
When you came out today in your dazzling uniforms, your pride showed. You walked proudly to your formation. And then it was GAME ON.
We were excited, and at the biggest moments we couldn't help but cheer. And you? You executed perfectly. It looked easy (and that's what practice will do for you...make things look easy), but we all know otherwise. And when it was all over, the score told the story. You set a goal and you achieved it. Every single one of you. What an amazing team. What an amazing accomplishment. What an amazing day.
Not this team.
