"And when you get to the point where all you wanna do is be is successful as bad as you wanna breathe then you will be successful. And I’m here to tell you that number one, most of you say you wanna be successful but you don’t want it bad, you just kind of want it. You don’t want it bad than you wanna party. You don’t want it as much as you want to be cool. Most of you don’t want success as much as you want sleep. Some of you lost sleep more than you lost success. And I’m here to tell you today, if your going to be successful you gotta be willing to give up sleep. You gotta be willing to work with 3 hours of sleep — 2 hours of sleep, if you really wanna be successful. Some day your gonna have to stay up 3 days in a row. Because if you go to sleep you might miss the opportunity to be successful."
He received a letter from a fan who’s also Deaf and he wrote back an inspirational reply
He’s the first ever Deaf offensive player in the league.
He’s also the first to score a touchdown
In order to play football, he has to watch everyone else and move when they move, wear hearing aids, and he has to read Quarterback Russell Wilson’s lips in order to know what the play is, and he still manages to do it and do it well.
He’s just an inspiration to me and a lot of others.
Who’s not talkin bout him? I love this guy
fuckin sick. high levels of sight, reflexes and reaction speed. superhero type shit right here
All over the web today there’s been story after story about how the media is “turning a blind eye” to Hope’s situation and her upcoming court appearance. Media sources as notable as The New York Times are calling for a harsher look at her conduct and the so-called lack of action by US Soccer. The most outrageous claims are that her actions are no different than those of Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson.
Before you even look at the hypocrisy of the media, look at the comparison they make. There is an underlying assumption being made that she’s guilty. As of now, no evidence has been made public that indicates she is guilty except for slight injuries to the accusing party, and Hope had cosmetic injuries as well, so there exists a very possible scenario in which she was defending herself from an on-set of blows from two people at once. But suppose she did it. Suppose she is 100% guilty of the claims being made. Are we really going to diminish the significance of what Rice and Peterson are PROVEN to have done by equating it with a dispute between young people that got out of hand? Are we really going to say that scenario is no different than beating your girlfriend out of consciousness on video in a public elevator, or beating a defenseless child in the name of discipline? In no way am I condoning violence of any kind, but if you say those are all the same, you’re not doing the victims of domestic violence a favor. You’re not helping those that feel that they are trapped in a cycle of abuse, forgiveness, abuse, forgiveness. You’re just saying it’s bad to hit someone, which we all already know.
Aside from that, I love how soccer, especially women’s soccer, gets no coverage unless they have a celebrity player under fire. Sure, do nothing to celebrate the accomplishments of the great players that remain unknown, that represent our country with pride and love for the flag. Just post that slanderous headline to get more hits. Profit from what you condone. We all respect you so much.
