Daily Commentary on the Dallas Sports Scene - By Bob Sturm - Sportsradio 1310, The Ticket - The Athletic Dallas - The Athletic - Bob Sturm
Truthfully, the Any Given Sunday bit gives me sports hope.I am fired up now... why do I do this to myself?Maybe Barkley is right, this series hasn't started yet --- it starts tonight. That mavs have definitely played like they thought they were in a couple scrimmages.
I don't know what to say really.Three minutesto the biggest battle of our professional livesall comes down to today.Eitherwe healas a teamor we are going to crumble.Inch by inchplay by playtill we're finished.We are in hell right now, gentlemenbelieve meandwe can stay hereand get the shit kicked out of usorwe can fight our wayback into the light.We can climb out of hell.One inch, at a time.Now I can't do it for you.I'm too old.I look around and I see these young facesand I thinkI meanI made every wrong choice a middle age man could make.I uh....I pissed away all my moneybelieve it or not.I chased offanyone who has ever loved me.And lately,I can't even stand the face I see in the mirror.You know when you get old in lifethings get taken from you.That's, that's part of life.But,you only learn that when you start losing stuff.You find out that life is just a game of inches.So is football.Because in either gamelife or footballthe margin for error is so small.I meanone half step too late or to earlyyou don't quite make it.One half second too slow or too fastand you don't quite catch it.The inches we need are everywhere around us.They are in ever break of the gameevery minute, every second.On this team, we fight for that inchOn this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around usto pieces for that inch.We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch.Cause we knowwhen we add up all those inchesthat's going to make the fucking differencebetween WINNING and LOSINGbetween LIVING and DYING.I'll tell you thisin any fightit is the guy who is willing to diewho is going to win that inch.And I knowif I am going to have any life anymoreit is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inchbecause that is what LIVING is.The six inches in front of your face.Now I can't make you do it.You gotta look at the guy next to you.Look into his eyes.Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you.You are going to see a guywho will sacrifice himself for this teambecause he knows when it comes down to it,you are gonna do the same thing for him.That's a team, gentlemenand either we heal now, as a team,or we will die as individuals.That's football guys.That's all it is.Now, whattaya gonna do?
I never get tired of that speech. You put that back to back with Youtube clips of Team Hoyt and I'm ready to murderdeathkill.
That clip exemplifies why football is awesome town and basketball is boring.
Oh yeah...we forgot the part where, for that team it was a game of inches and the Mavericks are off by feet because CP3 just tore them a new one. Give up this bit, Bob. It only works when you're trying to fire yourself up about a team that's close. The Mavericks are not close, my friend. Blow 'em up.Even if they did win, do you really want to run this same team out there again in 08/09. Hells naw.
Funny how the Josh Howard/Marijuana story is becoming such a hot topic now that the Mavs are playing like ass (good win tonight, though). He actually gave the interview a long time ago. Sturm and Dan were taking shots today too. I expect better from the BAD radio boys.
