Eye of the Tiger

Play this fight inspiring video while reading this post.

After a loss in overtime to a team that they should a beat, Brock, visibly frustrated, came out of the locker room after a post game speech that I can only imagine was very animated.

This is the conversation we had:

Brock: I might be getting fired.
Me: (spoken very slowly) Whhyyy?
Brock: Well, I slapped the wall in the locker room and my hand went through it.
Me: By "slapped" do you mean punched? (see below)

The fact that it is above "strength" is quite poignant
Brock: Yes.
Me: (always the problem solver) Can you just repair it yourself ?
Brock: No, the worst part is it in the middle of a mural....of the football team.....
Me: (adamant on finding a solution)Well, can you blame it on another coach and/or a player, possibly a senior?
Brock: That would be wrong.
Me: Yes, lying to cover up vandalism on the locker room wall is wrong. Did you tell your your boss?
Brock: Yes.
Me: What did he say?
Brock: He said don't make a habit of it.... but not to worry about it. They have to replace the mural anyway.
Me: What was wrong with the mural?
Brock: Well, in addition to the hole I punched, "champions" is spelled wrong. I guess I really dodged a bullet there.
Me: (blank stare)

I'd like to buy a "p", Vanna
