McCain Visits Marshall, Energy Plan Lost on Players
Presidential candidate John McCain showed up at Marshall University‘s football practice and gave the kids a pep talk like no other. This pep talk included a whole lot of his own personal hell including mostly his time serving in a war, being prisoner of war during that time and basically saying when the times get tough…suck it up. Here are his words of wisdom.
“We were a team and we had leaders. Our leaders were our senior ranking officers. They’re the ones that when we failed they picked us up and sent us back into the fight. And we didn’t always win. Sometimes it was very tough,”
Does McCain know Marshall football or what? I am thinking he is taking the under on the win totals for them this year for sure. I have no idea how this speech inspires anyone to win anything, in a nutshell he just said “You’re going to lose, losing is tough, but you’re going to have to pick yourselves up and go back out there…and you might lose again”. Words to live by kids, words to live by.
McCain should have just kept going on with something like this. “You might lose again, because deep down inside we’re all losers. I know I am. Sure you may win a little bowl, that’s kinda like winning a senatorial race, you get some press, you get some accolades, but you know its pretty meaningless in the grand scheme. Just remember, be careful if you try to go for that national championship kids…if you’re kinda like me, and I think we know you are, you’re gonna lose.”
