When Jason Street went down first game of the season, everybody wrote us off. Everybody. And yet here we are at the championship game. have also written us off. And there are a few out there who do still believe in you, few will never give up on you. You go back out on the field, those are the people I want in your minds. Those are the people I want in your hearts. 

“In most couples there is the person who wins and the person who doesn’t. The winner isn’t necessarily stronger or smarter or righter. The winner is the person who won’t give up, and the non-winner (“loser” is not the correct word for the person who does not win), at a certain point, realizes the battle is a silly one, and the spoils are not worth the extended warfare.”
