“Boxing is a sport where you can never take anything for granted. The smallest margin of error alter your career…and life. To succeed, skill and talent alone is not enough, but instead, the will to win is worth much more.”

“I am America. I am the part you won’t recognize. But get
used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours;
my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me.”

Fuck yeah great quote

In the early hours of January 1, 1953, down a road between Bristol, VA and Oak Hill, WV, Hank Williams breathed his last breath. (Though the pills are wishful thinking by the artist.)

i want a relationship like this
I’m not abusive person but this seems kinda like overkill for even the most abusive of people…and yes i know its fake.
Hello. My name is Chris Kluwe, and for eight years I was the punter for the Minnesota Vikings. In May 2013, the Vikings released me from the team. At the time, quite a few people asked me if I thought it was because of my recent activism for same-sex marriage rights, and I was very careful in how I answered the question. My answer, verbatim, was always, “I honestly don’t know, because I’m not in those meetings with the coaches and administrative people.”
This is a true answer. I honestly don’t know if my activism was the reason I got fired.
However, I’m pretty confident it was.
I think it’s safe to categorize this as our first, NFL related, “must read” of 2014.
