"It’s a great day, Let’s Play Two!"
by Steven M. Brainerd
That was Ernie Banks catch phrase and does apply here.
football has seen a number of interesting occurrences when it comes to
games played. Teams have often played Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday
(particularly the Seattle Cavaliers) although no one has ever done a
weekend triple play, but it might be that it is yet to be
discovered. Teams have played as many as seven games in a month (in
October 1963, the South Boston Chippewas did that).

“REMEMBER YOUR GREATNESS"
by Suzy Kasem
Before you were born,
and were still too tiny for
the human eye to see,
you won the race for life
From among 250 million competitors.
how fast you have forgotten
when your very existence
is proof of your greatness.
You were born a winner,
one who defied the odds
by surviving the most gruesome
battle of them all.

why do you even doubt victory
against smaller numbers,
and wider margins?
