|The craziest things occur,
Whether playing casino games
In a lush, picturesque tourist resort,
Or watching a pro sporting event
On the national, televised stage or in the stands –
You play and root so longingly for wins and victories,
Then the roof collapses
And Lady Luck departs,
Breaking hearts and piggy banks,
Leaving everyone in awe
With defeat and chaos.
But nothing can diminish
The effort of the players,
And their positive hope and eternal desire.
The truth is, walking the talk
And playing to win must forever co-exist.
Never play to reduce losses –
Play to win big,
For the love of people, games, and life –
Dare to live,
Dare to play,
And dare to win it all!!!
