In the movie Any Given Sunday, Al Pacino famously says, “The inches we need are everywhere around us. They are in every break of the game every minute, every second. On this team, we fight for that inch. On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when we add up all those inches that’s going to make the fucking difference between winning and losing, between living and dying.”
Here’s Clinton Portis’ version of that (via @granthpaulsen):
“If I had the chance to [fall down at the end of my 27-yard run] again, I would do the same thing with five people around me. Maybe I could have picked up four more yards. Four more yards, I don’t think, going to determine the outcome of that game.”
In closing, CP should probably stop talking and start playing or just retire.
