To me, football is so much about mental toughness, it’s digging deep, it’s doing whatever you need to do to help a team win and that comes in a lot of shapes and forms.
Happy Super Bowl Day everybody! Though I quoted Tom Brady above, I want the Eagles to win solely because #ATXPride. Let’s go Nick Foles! Represent Westlake HS, the ATX, and Texas!
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
We must not let the bad guys win. We must not let them instill fear in our spirit to the point we fear doing the simplest tasks. We must stay strong and have courage to show the bad guys we will not be taken down easily. We will prevail.
Whenever I read stories of people doing huge pranks on set, all I think is, ‘These people have too much time on their hands.’ Besides, I don’t want to make some poor assistant clean up someone’s trailer after I’ve filled it with, say, Cadbury eggs. See? I can’t even think of a good prank.

Happy 308th birthday Dr. Johnson!

I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.
