Any Given Sunday

Ever since I've heard this speech given by Al Pacino by his character in Any Given Sunday about 2 months ago on Zander's ipod, I've wanted to get it sooo badly.

Its one of the most inspirational speeches I've heard, EVER! It's the words, with the powerful delivery and background music that stirs you up.

I finally got that speech on my iTunes yesterday.

Which was good, coz it might just inspire me to study! :P

Words won't do it any justice, and you probably wouldn't bother readin it, but for those who want to know the geist of it, this is the 4 min speech by Al Pacino's character in Any Given Sunday.

'I dont know what to say really. Three minutes to the biggest battle of our professional lives. All comes down to today, and either, we heal as a team, or we're gonna crumble. Inch by inch, play by play. Until we're finished.We're in hell right now gentlemen. Believe me. And we can stay here, get the shit kicked out of us, or we can fight our way back into the light. We can climb outta hell... one inch at a time.

Now I can't do it for ya, I'm too old. I look around, I see these young faces and I think, I mean, I've made every wrong choice a middle-aged man can make. I've pissed away all my money, believe it or not. I chased off anyone who's ever loved me. And lately, I cant even stand the face I see in the mirror.

Y'know, when you get old in life, things get taken from you. I mean, that's part of life. But.. you only learn that when you start losing something. You find out life's this game of inches, so is football. Because in either game - life or football - the margin for error is so small.

I mean, one half a step too late or too early and you don't quite make it. One half second too slow, too fast and you don't quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us.
They're 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 add up all those inches, that's gonna make the fucking difference between winning and losing!

Between living and dying!

I'll tell you this, in any fight it's the guy whose willing to die whose gonna win that inch. And I know, if I'm gonna have any life any more it's because I'm still willing to fight and die for that inch, because that's what living is, the six inches in front of your face. Now I can't make you do it. You've got to look at the guy next to you, look into his eyes. Now I think ya going to see a guy who will go that inch with you. Your gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team, because he knows when it comes down to it your gonna do the same for him. That's a team gentlemen, and either, we heal as a team, or we will die as individuals.

That's football guys, that's all it is. Now what are you gonna do?'
