Ditka '89

Integrity. Hard work. Determination. That's what it takes to be a winner, in football and in life. Becoming a champion takes more than wanting to be one--you have to pay the price, meet your goals, set new ones. You have to prove yourself every day. I do. That's why the people at ______ have put their confidence in me to tell you, who already have confidence in me, that you can have confidence in ______. ______ is my ______. Why? Because the people at ______ get the job done. They have made the sacrifice to make ______ the best ______ it can be. ______: Because second-best is just not good enough.

Manners. Self-awareness. Humility. That's what it takes to survive, in football and in life. Not everyone can be a champion, but we all can be loyal to our friends and accept people for what they are. It's how you play the game that counts, not whether you win or lose. That's why the people at ______ have put their confidence in me to ask if you would please have confidence in ______. ______ is my ______. It might not be the number-one ______ in the world, but shucks, it's pretty darn good! And the important thing is that the people at ______ are always trying to do better. ______: Because there's more to life than winning.
