So last night I caught another episode of “Bound for Glory” and in addition to finding “football dads” to be quite a scary, scary bunch of folks, I found what I think is the laziest high schooler ever.
The “star” (if “star” means “fumbles a lot and is lazy”) of the team is named Christian and Christian is quite good looking and extraordinarily lazy. Several times throughout the show, the coaches commented on his lack of motivation in practice. Hell, even Christian admits that when he is at practice he is just “chillin’.” His mother interviewed on camera that Christian will take the easy way out whenever possible.
The show brought in a UPMC (product-placed) sports psychologist to speak to the team about visualization.
Are you ready, Burghers? Here’s what Christian had to say about that, and this is an extremely close paraphrase:
“The sports psychologist told us to visualize winning and stuff. But see, I don’t want to do that ’cause if I visualize every night that I get three touchdowns in the game, and then I go to the game and don’t get three touchdowns, I will have visualized for nothing.”
I have nothing left to say, except that I might dress up as a football dad for Halloween. Scary shit.
