So, you don't have to be the one that takes that last shot, that catches or throws that final pass. You don't have to be the one that advances farther than any other player on your team or be the one that carries the load of your teammates when the the game is on the line. Remember, there were plays and practices and preparations that led you and your team to that moment long before the final play was executed, the final race was run or the final ball was pitched.
