“Trying to Get Back in the Game”

“Trying to Get Back in the Game”  

A Disbarred Lawyer is Seeking Work As a Mediator

“Mr. Weiss lost his license to practice law when he pleaded guilty in 2008 to making illegal kickback payments to his clients.”  Mr. Weiss would like “to get back in the legal arena“.  He has been mailing letters to former colleagues hoping to “get back in the game” by seeking work he did formerly as a mediator. He is “available to mediate or arbitrate significant disputes.”

Games are played in arenas, whether sports or business.  These sports metaphors are almost interchangeable with business metaphors.
