I think that I shall never see a satisfactory referee.

About whose head a halo shines, Whose merits rate reporters lines.  One who calls them as they are and not as I should wish, by far.

A gent who’ll sting the coach who yaps, from Siwash Hi to Old Millsaps.

Poems are made by fools like me but only God could referee. — Walt Fudjak, Jr.


  • If you don’t have some HUMOR with pressure, pressure will win.
  • There is no thrill in easy sailing when the skies are clear and blue.  There is no joy in merely doing things which anyone can do. BUT there is some satisfaction that is mighty sweet to take.  When you reach a destination that you thought you couldn’t make.



There’s plenty of praise for the fellow that wins, and the one who’s always in the lead; But little is said for the one left behind, Who tried, but didn’t succeed.

Not for him the acclaim, though the effort’s the same, and his courage was equally as great.  He ran a good race, but somehow the pace made him only a minute too late.

He tries once again, his courage still high, running steadily, always the same.  This pace all through life, in peace or in strife, makes a winner in spite of the name.



I don’t say these things because I believe in the ‘brute’ nature of man or that man must be brutalized top be combative.

I believe in God, and I believe in human decency.  I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour – his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear – is that moment when he has worked his heart out in good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – VICTORIOUS.


  • The most important ingredient in your gym bag is your ATTITUDE.
  • He who has HEART has HOPE, and he who has HOPE has everything.  – Arabian Proverb
  • NEVER – NEVER – NEVER – NEVER GIVE UP. — Winston Churchill
