Defensive Zone

  • Defense is dull, boring commonplace. It is the unimaginative plodding attention to duty. It is grit and determination. There is never a day you can’t use defense. All you need is the decision to put out. To give 100 percent. What defense discloses is character. Effort and energy are a matter of will.
