It's game time.
Alone in the locker room, a football player makes his final preparations. He slips his pads over his head and fits them perfectly on his shoulders. Next, he throws on his jersey, the large numbers tightly wrapping around the bulky armor that frames him. Finally, he slowly pulls his helmet over his head. He carefully fastens the strap across his chin and gives the hard protective shell a slap with both hands. Now ready, he storms out of the locker room to join his teammates. He sprints through the tunnel toward a deep green playing field washed in the warm glow of a bright spotlight.
It is a moment for which he has prepared his whole life.
