Is it because I winned?

My name is Jason... and I have a problem.

Why do i like to play John Madden 05 on my Play Station so much. I am in my 14th season and I haven't lost a game in 10 seasons (except for one preseason game 4 seasons ago when my 3rd string QB threw an interception with a minute left and I was down by 2). I have averaged close to 47 points/game for the last 10 seasons and my defense has always been in the top 5 only allowing an average of 10 points/game.

So.. why do I enjoy playing so much??? I mean - I give it my all. I work hard every play. I want to win. I love scoring points. I love knowing I did something right.

Maybe it's cause I have a "job" where I may never know fully if what I am doing is "good" or "working". I don't think I would like to be in a top 5 Pastors list. I don't want to score more points than Vintage 21 or Hope Community Church, or Mars Hill.

But - I love to play.. and win at John Madden. I love to do my job and accomplish. I love to see results.

Why???

Prolly a deeper reason than I care to really know... but maybe not... possibly more to come.

Maybe I am just a nerd...

sincerely,

-Jason

Remember that time when I almost beat you, but I missed the field goal on purpose, I mean on accident.

My coworker has a 4 year old relative that is very into winning. If she beats you up the stairs, she will say "I won at stairs". If she finishes a meal before you, she'll firmly tell you, "Sam, I beat you at food." What's funny, is I find myself wanting to beat her at "food" or "stairs" sometimes...like I'm really competing with this 4 year old. Man, what does that say about me? I think I need therapy...
