l coach of mine ripped this speech off. 10 minutes before the game, he tells us to close our eyes and listen. I heard the rustling of paper and then he starts giving a speech. About 20 seconds in, I’m thinking, “Is this dude trying to do the speech from Any Given Sunday?”. Then he starts talking about how life and football are both a game of inches, and I have to keep myself from laughing. Long story short, we lose the game, but I’ll never forget that.
