If This Doesn't Inspire You To Greatness, Nothing Will.



Today is round one of the play-offs in my adult soccer league, and though there is no reason for it, I am a little nervous. It has less to do with me being competitive and wanting to move on into the next round (although I am fairly competitive and I would like to move on to the next round) and more to do with the fact that I don't want to disappoint my teammates. I don't want to be Charlie Brown. I don't want to be the goat. So before the game I will watch this clip for inspiration. It will remind me that no matter how badly I choke, some other poor sap might choke even worse.

nice shot there stephen curry

tigger on the radio this morning - his public persona is just not a likeable one

NJ Adult Soccer Fever...Catch It!

Is the game televised?

rob said...

geoff's giving mike & mike the business over on the twitter. and he's right. between tiger's dull as beige personality and the softball questions that went begging for followups, that was a decidely useless interview.

Geoff said...

I got an angry tweet from Greenburg. That one's going the fridge next to the kids finger paintings.

Danimal said...

don't make greenburg angry...it's not pretty.

tiger is a tool - there's no other way to say it. maybe in real life he's cool & hip like gtb'rs. if so, he should give the people a peek rather than be so douchey. that is the danimal's two cents.

Geoff said...

I've always heard that Tiger is generally more well liked on the tour than is FIGJAM. I've also heard that the one thing every one can agree on is that Vijay is a dick.

Geoff said...

So...I was thinking..."The Rear Admiral" is a great name for a gay bar.

Danimal said...

i keep coming back to "tunnel bangers"...it's very versatile...

Igor said...

I like McSore-ly's.

Danimal said...

yes geoff - hear the same on tigger vs phil inside ropes personality...it is why i constantly ask - why does he not show it, even a little, when he does these interviews and his pressers? what is the downside? ESPECIALLY now....it just makes no sense to me.

Geoff said...

I think its because he's still a nervous nerd...and doing TV interviews is like anything else...you improve with time and experience...and he has no real experience.

Mark said...

Didnt Geoff get an angry tweet from Buzz awhile back as well? That fridge us filling up fast.

Dave said...

the game is not televised but one of the guys on our team sets up a tripod and takes video of every game. this is inexplicable. does he go home and watch the video? the worst part is, he's one of our older and slower players and everyone on the team has definitely said something derogatory about his lack of defensive huddle while in range of the camera . . . maybe i can get a clip and post it on g:tb. it will definitely be inspirational.

Dave said...

and, of course, i spell hustle "huddle."

Dave said...

in my defense, the "s" and the "d" are right next to each other on the keyboard.

Someone at my office who I really didn't care for was just summarily dismissed. I am giddy...but feel somewhat bad for feeling that way.

TR said...

Several hours late here, but there was an actual Manhattan bar called Manhole. It was among the most comically named bars near my old West Village neighborhood. Boots and Saddles and Rawhide were also in the mix.

Tremendous effort all the way around with the names, gents. But maybe that's just the couch scotches talkin...

Danimal said...

A smashing great start to the day....taking mom in law to the airport. If anyone is borderline suicidal and just can't quite pull trigger, let me know and will send her your way.

Dave said...

for those of you concerned, we won last night 3-2. and then we went for beers at a real place called "buffalo wild wings"-- but that could certainly be the name of a gay bar.
