when they dont do the super safe thing that everybody else does
when they dont do the same old thing that THEY do all the time
but instead when they do the absolute right thing at the right time
out of love
and to see OMG HOW BIG CAN I BE
you can tell when people are at that point because they’re loud and sweaty and crazed
theyre not drunk or wasted or bitter or shady
they have their goal right there out there for everyone to see and they are clear about it.
clayton kershaw had never pitched on just 3 days rest but he said gimme the ball
imma pitch and win this game and we wont need to fly out to the dirty south
we’re gonna win and chill right here in lipstick city.
and then his coach Donny Baseball said wow how am i supposed to say no
and then the front office of the dodgers said
omg THIS IS WHAT WE PAY HIM MILLIONSSSSS FOR: ROCK CRAZY MAN
and that spirit is contagious
which is when the team wins
in spectacular fashion.
so go for it.
you still might lose,
but at least youre not a dirty coward.
