    skyrim etc makes this world a worse place. what happened to playing with your mates OUTSIDE

    • bbqboobs

      I was gonna play with my friends outside, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

    • Ken

      yeah tell that to all the rapes and kidnaps.. Kids don't go outside because it's not safe.
      I was almost kidnapped as a child and I was scared shitless for a lot of my childhood.
      and I wouldn't want other children to grow up the way i did.

      • valde

        So you think it's better for kids to stay inside their entire childhood??

      • tye

        You must of grown up in a horrible place, when i was younger everyone went outside, i was out all the time when i was a child as was almost every other kid was too, theres nothing bad about being outside

  • IceColdBuddha

    amazing……wow…… anybody know the athlete?

    • ranD

      Giavanni Ruffin (running back for East Carolina).

  • A Kinesiology Major

    The athlete is not the important part (altho awesome) the speaker is Eric Thomas. The story and the point are the reasons this is such an amazing video.

    • Zach

      it is important, because the story is a perfect story for Giavanni. He wants to succeed and is doing everything in his power to make it happen. GO PIRATES!

    • burpee

      Explosions In the Sky is pretty awesome, too.

  • phydor

    He's right. …i typed at 12:36am when I should be at the other laptop where work is done if I'm bothering to be awake at this time.

  • Inspect-Her Gadget

    • This

      Let me tell you the rest of the story. He becomes successful. Then he realises that money power and success don't bring peace of mind and happiness. Then he dies. The End

  • Eric

    Just had a kid, want sleep more than tv. And I will get it.

  • roadie

    First thing someone asks me after I tell them I get up at 3:30am to train is, "What time do you go to bed?"
    To most people, sleep is #1. That's why they're late every day. That's why they procrastinate with just about every choice they make in life. They're afraid of losing sleep. Me? I'm afraid of losing. Period. That's why I wake up 5 minutes before my alarm goes off and I'm busting my ass before most people even think about hitting the snooze button – the first out of 4 times.

    • SimonPhoenix

      Cool Story, Bra.

  • Dean

    When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe then you'll be successful.

    • eggnog
