A familiar phrase in sports is that a team or player “controls their own destiny.” This really is thrown out a lot towards the end of the season or heading into the playoffs. Well I was under the impression that destiny could not be controlled, the sheer definition alone makes me further believe it. Destiny is defined as a predetermined course of events. It is another saying that has taken off and it does not make any sense. Every time I hear an announcer or sports radio host say that I get heated up. Destiny was never intended to be changed, altered or controlled. We are just along for the ride. How about just state the facts, if this team wins out they can play for the championship, seems simple enough!
