THE MAN IN THE AREA
There he is. The man in the arena. Broken but unbowed. Courageously playing a game through pain, obliviously to his discomfort, thinking only of the team. The heroics of it all! The inspiration this will provide to generations to come. One can almost hear the sergeant on some distant, foreign shore, in some future war, rallying his troops, screaming about the great one, playing through pain.
Somebody give this man a raise! He's earned it.
THE NUN IN THE ARENA
Speaking of great competitors, this NUN WON Italy's version of The Voice last night, singing a rousing version of "What A Feeling" from the movie Flashdance.
Oh what a feeling, to rise above adversity. To compete, per chance to win, no matter the odds, no matter the humidity level.
All of Miami is a better place today, because of the heroics of our hometown champs.
If you can pull yourself off the couch in what must be a stunned stupor of admiration for that spectacle, go outside and enjoy a beautiful spring like weekend. Monday is always around the corner.
