You must understand, my dearest Oilers, that it is virtuous to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get frustrated. Anger and frustration do not produce the righteousness that God desires, so get rid of any negative attitudes and humbly accept that your lot this year may not be the Stanley Cup. Instead, God is testing you so that you will know that you can rely on his power to get you through every trial.
But that doesn't mean you can be lazy! Don't just listen to your coaches, actually do what they say! Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves when you say, "We're just young, we'll get better with age". If you say things like that, you deserve a bag-skate! For if you listen, but don't act, it's like taking a quick glance at a map before leaving home - you're sure to get lost! But if you study the map carefully, you will be saved from every trouble.
If you consider yourselves followers of the Way, then prove it! Keep a tight rein on your tongues - and I'm not just talking about speech! - so that you can be set apart from the world. You have been called by God for a particular task: to live lives singularly devoted to the practice of your craft so that you may bring his Cup to his favoured city once again.
