Dumb and Sucky

I'm constantly trying to tell my son's that sometimes in life, some people just suck or that some people are just really dumb. They ask me, "Dad, why does such and such act like that or say that?" "Well, son, sometimes it comes down to the fact that they are just really dumb."

I would tell my staff at Penn that all the time. We'd come out of a meeting with a clueless supervisor (since fired) who didn't want the football team to lift heavy or thought that yoga was the ultimate answer for the football team to get them more explosive, and they would be all, WTF? and I'd say, "Now  guys, you know she is a fucking idiot, right? So why are you surprised by what she said?" I remember one time, I took one of my assistant coaches into a meeting with the biggest sport team coaches and when we left, she asked, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? THEY JUST TALKED IN CIRCLES FOR AN HOUR! NOTHING WAS ACCOMPLISHED! And I'd say, "Welcome to my world, where coaches meet to justify their positions." Administrators are the worst. Let's have a meeting, let's have a meeting. I had zero meetings with my staff. I was with them 14 hours a day. I talked to them all day. We met with a supervisor one time to tell him to back off and let us do our jobs. We went around the room blasting him. He was a coward, and dumb, so he needed to be talked to. Never bothered us again. I think the line to him was, "When we need someone to whine to administration, we will call you, until then, stay away."  He just sucked and he was dumb.  

And plenty of  people suck. They stab you in the back or they hate your success or they talk about you behind your back. Cowards, sucky cowards. Now that I have kids who play high school sports or travel sports, I see that most coaches suck or maybe, they are just dumb. Recently, my one son had a coach who was, well, a dumbass. He kept telling my son that he didn't know the sport. My son told him that he has worked out with pro athletes in the sport, college athletes in the sport and attended hundreds of games. His pussy answer? "I dont give a fuck who you worked out with." And he said it twice. He probably doesn't realize that my son can beat his fat ass, but he would probably call the police as he lie there whimpering, beaten up by a teenage kid. That would be so great. Oh, you think you are a tough guy, a real tough guy? Start running, because you are gonna get your teeth caved in. Dumb, sucky, and a coward.

I was getting gas the other day and this lady pulled up to a gas pump that had a big orange cone in front of it.  The cone was huge. That pump was closed as indicated by that big ass orange cone. She started ranting and raving and telling the attendant that it was such bullshit and this and that. He said, "Yes ma'am, but there is a big cone in front of it to indicate that that pump is closed." She didn't care. She just sat in her Lexus fuming. She sucked. I pumped gas and dealing with the public really sucks. She obviously hadn't worked a blue collar job in her life. The attendant was cool, so I had to hand it to him. One day, someone will have enough of her big ass mouth and lose their shit with that lady and she will be sorry.

I have a theory that people would not suck so much if, every time they sucked, they got their ass beat. It’s like when everyone around has a gun. Nobody talks shit, everyone is very respectful. They would learn real fast to be polite or they will get a broken jaw. A few broken jaws and a broken nose will make you shut your trap , real fast. People who have grown up without fear of getting their ass kicked because of their mouth never even consider that there are folks out there whose first reaction or thought when getting insulted is to beat your damn ass. And one day they pull up to the wrong gas station on the wrong night and the attendant just broke up with his girlfriend and he is not in the mood to hear anything from some yuppie scum. And when the attendant freaks the hell out on them, they start back pedalling and talking about calling their boss and all that, but all they hear is, “Great, call my damn boss!” as fist hits flesh. I have been around enough bad dudes to know that unless you are ready to fight, keep your damn mouth shut. Some dumb, sucky people need to learn that lesson.

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
