Thought for the day

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who as the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

The Most Ignorant Jock In the US

This from Neal Boortz

" Now this particular gladiator is named Andrel Rolle.  He plays for the NY Giants, know what I'm sayin'?  Throughout his life Rolle has probably never had to develop anything beyond his athletic ability.  And educated guess would be that he has been given an academic pass from about age 12 through his graduation --- if he graduated from college at all from the University of Miami. "

"Sooo ... I understand the Giants aren't exactly having a stellar season. In fact, the Giants fans seem to be developing a penchant for booing the team.  On Tuesday Andrel decided to respond to the fans ... and made this statement to the media:"

"They want to make it that guys paid this much money for a ticket. Yeah, I understand that, I understand completely. We risk ourselves out there on the field each and every day also. When soldiers come home from Iraq you don't boo them. I look at it the same way. I take my job seriously."
