Once upon a time there was a successful baseball team.
And every day they would play games with another local team to stay competitive and improve.
Until one day they got an invitation to a tournament far across the sea.
And because of this they got excited and started preparing for the trip.
And because of this they stopped practicing and playing while the other local team continued to play.
Until finally their invitation was given to the other local team for being more competitive.
And ever since that day they have been maintaining discipline and focus hoping for a new invitation.
