Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

The Failed Hail Mary

First of all, the Hail Mary should never be a strategy – it’s only a last resort – your last shot when all seems to be lost. Under those conditions, you really have no choice. It’s either do nothing, or go for the Hail Mary and hope for the best (hope for the best is never a good strategy either, BTW). So throwing a Hail Mary and losing the game isn’t really a big surprise – the game was already lost, you were just hoping for a miracle (hoping for a miracle – also not a good strategy).

So I just threw a Hail Mary in life and came up short. Losing sucks, but nobody got hurt and I’ll live to fight another day. Take a deep breath, remember all of the things you have to be grateful for, pick yourself up, and move the fuck on.

Tomorrow is another day.
