FAITH enough to make real the things of God;
HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.

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?
"You can never win," comes the answer,
"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."
