Plus sky blue Revo sunglasses to disguise my age. I think about taking my father 's favorite Sea-Dweller Oyster Rolex.

Why Winning Isn 't Everything, It 's The Only Thing

- Why Win. To compete, as defined by the New Century Dictionary, is “To contend with another for some prize or advantage” (“compete”[Volume 1][Page 294]).
