The greatest battle of all is simply... Life.
This is no child's game. This is the big one -
the Super Bowl - the Game of all games.

The Judge is silent.
How can I win the Game?

"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."

have caviar for breakfast and oatmeal for dinner,
wear a purple coat with a red hat - dance lightly with life.
